He’s technically sound and he’s creative. But most importantly, Braden Sunho is unselfish.
That’s what makes Braden Sunho both a great playmaker and goal scorer.
During the regular season, the Palmyra boys’ soccer team ran its offense through Sunho, and the junior forward certainly responded. Now that the Cougars are firmly entrenched in playoff mode, there’s really no reason to go away from the things that have worked.
On Monday at Palmyra High School’s OAL Sports Complex, Sunho netted a pair of goals in the Cougars’ 3-0 triumph over Donegal, in the semifinal round of the District Three Class AAA playoffs.
With the Cougars nursing a 1-0 edge early in the first half, Sunho’s 30-yard right-footer from the middle of the pitch gave his side a little breathing room. Then, four minutes before halftime, Sunho’s persistence paid off, as he banged home a rebound to give Palmyra a 3-0 cushion.
The semifinal victory sent Palmyra into Thursday’s District Three Class AAA championship tilt at Hersheypark Stadium, where the Cougars fell to rival Hershey 3-1. Now 17-3-1, Palmyra had already qualified for next week’s PIAA Class AAA tournament.
