Boys' soccer roundup

Kennedy-Kenrick boys’ soccer coach Mike McKenna has struggled to keep his team competitive because of a lack of players and has been successful most of the time. He may get more players than he knows what to do with after the Wolverines beat Lansdale Catholic in a Catholic League Blue Division game. Matt Moloney scored twice in the second half and led Kennedy-Kenrick past the host Crusaders, 2-1. Sean Rooney gave Lansdale Catholic (6-3-1, 6-2-1) a 1-0 lead in the first half, but Moloney tied the game with 16 minutes left in the game and notched the deciding goal with 30 seconds left off a head ball by Danny Price. The Wolverines got seven saves from Nick Gremminger.
