HERSHEY -- Hey everyone, back for more soccer. Area teams are 1-0 after Christopher Dock's 2-1 victory in the Class A boys' title game. Octorara will look to make it two-for-two.
Greg Patrick has scored 10 goals in five postseason games for the Braves, so he will be the player to watch. If Patrick can get going, Octorara could win its first state championship since 1999.
Keep it here and refresh often for updates.

Kudos to Seneca football coach Bill Fisher.
The ninth-year head man brought the Golden Eagles back from a 3-7 season last year to a South Group 3 semifinal against No. 1 seed Hammonton.
Fifth-seeded Seneca (7-2) is made up mostly of underclassmen.
