Region 4 got even closer on Wednesday.

Warren’s boys soccer team dispatched Corry, 14-0, at War Memorial Field to improve to 11-2 in the region. Almost an hour and a half away, in Franklin, North East downed the Knights, 6-1, to also improve to 11-2. With the loss, Franklin makes it all three boys soccer teams having 11-2 records and one region game remaining.

JT Blum had three goals and Parks Ordiway two goals and five assists for Warren against Corry.

“We are quickly shifting focus to the Franklin game, which is the final game of the season and a region matchup,” said Warren coach Denny Flatt.

In their final home game of their high school careers, seniors Blum and Roman Sheets combined for four goals and two assists, and Ricky Madril and Kohle Lyon paced the defense in the shutout.

“It’s great in a match like this to see some of our younger players getting varsity touches,” said Warren assistant coach Chris Darling. “Everyone on the roster was able to get some minutes.”
