Upper Perkiomen Boys Soccer Wins Two Straight
Written by Bradley Schlegel, Staff Writer

            Dean Miller may be Upper Perkiomen's most diminutive player. But on Saturday, his goal allowed the team to post a 1-0 victory over Brandywine Heights.

            Three days later, the team posted a 2-1 win over Pope John Paul in the 

Pioneer Athletic Conference.

            "We're on a roll," head coach Kyle Fisher said.

            On Tuesday against the Panthers, Cameron Marshall scored the game-winning goal off a corner kick from Tyler Raymond to snap 1-1 tie with six minutes remaining in regulation for the Indians, who have notched consecutive victories for the first time this season. Raymond also added a goal off an assist from Mike Sitko in their final home game of the season.

            According to Fisher, the players celebrated like they won a major tournament or a conference title.

            "The guys were absolutely thrilled," he said. "There were a lot of hugs. I couldn't be happier to send a small group of seniors off with a great win."

            The coach, who said his team played with intensity and a lot of heart, was not surprised by Upper Perkiomen's performance.

            "The effort has been there all season," Fisher said. "Once we got the first win, I knew there would be more."

            Against the visiting Bullets, Miller scored on a header with 15 minutes remaining in the second half, off an assist from Bryce Lesko, to give the host Indians their second victory of the season in a non-league game. 

            "The guys played great down the stretch," the coach said. "Hopefully the win with give them more confidence moving forward."

            According to the coach, goalkeeper Jackson Lill was never challenged thanks in large part to the defensive performance of Nick Mattsen, Cameron Marshall, Jack Cupid and Lesko.

            "Those four guys did a great job stifling any Brandywine Heights offensive chances," Fisher said. "We also controlled the midfield and possessed the ball well."

            Playing without five starters due to a combination of injuries, disciplinary actions and Scholastic Aptitude Testing, Upper Perkiomen relied heavily on six ninth graders. According to the coach, Michael Fisher, Jack Cupid, Cole Kendra, Jake Fetterman, Lucas Carpenter and Keating Durning each received significant playing time and contributed with their hustle and work ethic.

            "They are all responsive and high IQ soccer players," Kyle Fisher said.

            The Indians conclude their season with a game at Pottstown on Thursday.
