"Like many squads, Riverside High School's boys soccer team prefers to play with the lead.
So when the Panthers found themselves trailing, 1-0, at halftime to Greensburg Central Catholic in the WPIAL Class A championship game last Saturday night at Baldwin, coach Ben Huth knew an adjustment was essential.
"We basically were sending one player in against four defenders," Huth said of the first-half strategy that left his team trailing the Centurions. "So we switched from a 5-4-1 [five defenders, four midfielders and one forward] to a 4-4-2, that sometimes morphed into a 4-3-3. The way we'd been playing in the first half, we were back on our heels.""
