Second Half Goals Push Pella Boys Soccer Past Newton

Facing yet another road test Tuesday night in Newton, the Pella High boys soccer team relied on precision passing and defensive intensity to notch a 3-1 win over the Cardinals. The Little Dutch held a 1-0 halftime lead, courtesy of a Shenstone Huang goal.

Newton came firing back in the second half, pressuring Pella’s defense and sneaking a goal past keeper Ben Robertson to tie the game with 27 minutes remaining. The Little Dutch responded with a header from Grant Barrick and were boosted by a free kick goal from Pauly Apostolopoulos to secure the victory.

The Pella High boys soccer team is now 4-1-1 on the season and will host Dallas Center-Grimes on Friday.
