In a matchup between the District 1 and District 12 runners-up, the Council Rock North Indians defeated the Northeast Vikings, 3-1, in a PIAA 4A Boys soccer first round matchup.
The Indians, who lost to Conestoga in the District 1 championship, got the lead early on the Vikings and never looked back. First half goals by captains Conor O'Donnell and Sean Finneyfrock put CR North up 2-0 and the high-powered Northeast offense could never get going.
With the win, Council Rock North will battle Hempfield, the District 3 champion, in a quarterfinal matchup on Saturday. Hempfield defeated Perkiomen Valley, also out of District 1, by a score of 1-0 in the first round on Tuesday night at Hersheypark Stadium.
