It took 75 minutes to break the 0-0 tie in the Shippensburg vs. Salem match from David See Field Tuesday night. The Raiders certainly had a flair for the dramatics in scoring the lone goal as senior Cole Kropnick hit the game-winner with a perfectly placed bicycle kick.
Senior Devlin Mettee began the action with a side throw in. He missed his intended target, overthrowing two Raiders, but perhaps he knew it was because Kropnick was looming in the distance. Kropnick puts the ball right below the crossbar inches above the extended arms of Salem's keeper Wiktor Stawksi with the well-executed bicycle kick.
