Brody Veleber made sure Delco Christian’s long ride home from New Hope was an enjoyable trip Friday afternoon.
The senior goalie came up huge to help the Knights pull out a 2-1 Bicentennial League boys soccer victory over New Hope-Solebury.
Veleber made 26 saves. The biggest came on a penalty kick in the first half to keep the Lions off the board.
Daniel Deger had a hand in both goals for the Knights. He set up Henry Moon in the 26th minute to put DC in front, 1-0, and then scored on a direct kick from about 30 yards out in the 64th minute to extend the lead to 2-0.
In the Catholic League:
Father Judge 1, Bonner & Prendergast 0 >> Tony Harper turned back seven shots in goal for the Friars. Tim Sweeney scored in the first half for Judge.
In nonleague action:
Episcopal Academy 1, Friends Central 0 >> Luca DiLeonardo’s first varsity goal was a memorable one. The junior converted a pass from Chris Bassett in the second half to lift the Churchmen.
Goalie Trevor Manion made two saves for the shutout.
