Kent scores four goals on Field's home turf — all in the second half
The first 40 minutes of the Portage Trail Conference high-school boys' soccer title game didn't look promising, as Kent Roosevelt's Boys' Soccer team couldn't earn a single goal. But then neither could their opponent the Field Falcons. Then, in the first minute of the second half, Kent senior forward Dean Habeeb cranked up the momentum with one goal, which he followed up 10 minutes later with a second goal. With four minutes left in the game, senior forward Connor Thomas stunned the Falcons with a third goal. And junior defender Logan Scmucker followed three minutes later with a fourth. The Kent Roosevelt Boys’ Soccer Team not only took the PTC title, but they finished undefeated in the conference at 6-0 with an overall regular-season …
Kent ties Field 1-1 in Brimfield Tuesday night during championship game
The Kent Roosevelt Girls' Soccer Team knew the only way to the Portage Trail Conference title was a win against the Field Falcons on their own turf Tuesday night. Field's Sarah Francis scored in the first half, and then Kent's Justina Fortson responded with her own goal with 10 minutes left in the game. Kent held Field after Fortson's score.

Tuesday’s game leaves the Rough Riders with a PTC record of 3-0-3, which places the girls in a four-way tie for the PTC title with Field, Norton and Coventry, said Coach Leslie Neice. Kent's overall regular-season record of 6-5-4 compares to Field’s season record of 8-4-3, according to Coach Chris Lemmo. The Kent girls' team played just before the boys' battle, also against Field…
