Delta's Panthers have been riding high on success this season and added to the list of wins by scoring a 2-1 win over Coal Ridge's Titans last week in New Castle.
The Panthers (3-0 and 9-1) scored twice, once in each half, to effect a sweep over the Titans (1-1-0 and 6-2-1).
Sophomore Martin Corral scored his 10th goal of the season in the first half off a shot from distance with an assist from senior Bradley Davis.
Senior Danny Mendoza scored his fifth goal in the second half on a cross from Marcos Edmondson. Mendoza used a head shot to score.
In all, Delta took 13 shots in the match.
Coach Elaine Wood was pleased with the way the Panthers played. "Coal Ridge scored after our last goal, but we held them off. We were down a couple of starters due to illness. The team found a way to win and it was magnificent. It was a tough but great game. The team showed heart."
Sophomore Felipe Bedoy was in net for his ninth win for the Panthers. Bedoy's soccer skills have been borrowed for kicking duties by Delta High School's football team
