Coach suspended after 24-1 match

Nothing seems to disturb soccer enthusiasts more than one out-of-hand soccer result. Such was the case recently in Pennsylvania, where Mountain View (Kingsley, Pa.) pinned a 24-1 boys’ soccer defeat on Old Forge (Old Forge, Pa.) on Oct. 16. After the match between Scranton-area programs, the Mountain View coach was suspended for two contests (which ultimately were never played anyway) by the superintendent who would not confirm a reason for the suspension. The Independent Weekender reported on a meeting following the suspension where most people supported the coach. The Times-Tribune also followed the story from the beginning and reported on the confusion that followed as to whether matches the coach was supposed to sit out were canceled or forfeited.
