Marky Billson profiles the Beaver boys soccer team.

"At the start of the week, Beaver Area had established itself as the boys soccer team to beat in Section 4-AA with an 8-1 record, including an 8-0 mark in the section for a two-game lead over Ambridge.

Additionally, the Bobcats had shut out their previous six opponents before Tuesday's 6-1 loss at Central Valley and had won both of their games against the Bridgers despite numerous injuries at the start of the season.

"We've sort of evolved over time. Five years ago we had Josh Turnley [now a senior on the Georgetown University soccer team] and I learned a lot back then, our section and what it takes to win. I'm in my seventh year and we've set the bar high. We expect to win the section every year and make a run in the playoffs," said coach Scott Hazuda. "We keep practices fast-paced and competitive and it produces good results.""
