Bill Iezzi:Palmyra Soccer Tie

After Palmyra and Jonathan Dayton ended the state Group 1 boys championship soccer game in a scoreless tie Saturday, I sensed a feeling of relief by both teams.

No player or coach was complaining about not winning. They seemed to be content with a tie by two teams that worked hard against each other for 100 minutes of play.

And that was understandable, since neither the Panthers nor the Bulldogs had ever won a state crown.

However, Palmyra did leave with the trophy after winning a coin flip to decide who would take it home.

That made Palmyra feel a lot better.
