            Following a 3-2 victory over Methacton on Monday, the Indians lead the Pioneer Athletic Conference's Frontier Division with a 5-0 record. At 10-0 overall, they have maintained their lead atop the District One Class 3A power rankings.

            Facilitated in part by an overtime victory over Owen J. Roberts earlier this month, the Tribe also appeared on the Pennsylvania Soccer Coaches Association Poll. The team was ranked No. 4 for the week ending Sept. 18. It moved up three spaces after its debut the week before.

            As the Indians' run game couldn't find consistency, they went to the air. Senior quarterback Mike Boyle turned in one of his top performances of the season as he completed 11 of 26 passes for 197 yards with a touchdown and interception.
