Warren’s boys soccer team garnered four first-team all-stars — and seven in all — in a nip-and-tuck Region 4 in which the Dragons shared the region title with North East.

As a junior Parks Ordiway is a two-time first-team region all-star in his second season with 30 or more goals scored.

Ordiway also led the Dragons with 28 assists in a 12-4 season that ended with a 2-1 playoff loss to Harbor Creek.

Other first-teamers for the Dragons voted by region coaches included senior forward J.T. Blum, whose 23 goals and 11 assists both ranked second on the team.

Junior defender Jack Darling is now a first-team all-star all three of his high school seasons. After being voted to the second team as a junior, senior Ricky Madril was voted to first-team defense this season.

The Region 4 second team included junior goalkeeper Will Nebinski, junior defender Ethan Best and freshman midfielder Finn Ordiway.

“These players were very deserving of their selections,” said Warren coach Denny Flatt. “Our success this year was based on the hard work and dedication of the entire team. Some of those players were not selected, but played a vital role this season. It speaks volumes, when opposing coaches vote seven of your eleven starters for this recognition. Senior captains JT Blum and Ricky Madril played vital roles this year and we are very happy for them. The other five players will be back next season, and will be counted upon to lead a skilled squad next year. Hopefully we will see those five players recognized next year, plus some additional names.”

Eisenhower seniors Micah Mocny (defense) and Jake Venman (midfield) were also voted to the second team in a region that also included North East, Franklin, Fort LeBoeuf, Titusville, Oil City and Corry.

North East, also 12-4 in the region, had five first-team all-stars named, including region Player of the Year Krew Ksenich (forward). Ksenich had 42 goals for the 14-5 Grapepickers.
