Scoring goals has been no problem for Tamaqua this season, with one exception.
After 180 minutes of soccer, the Lady Raiders have yet to find the net against Blue Mountain.
In their first meeting back on Sept. 11 at Orwigsburg, the Lady Eagles stunned the defending District 11 Class AA fall champion Raiders, handing them their first loss by a 3-0 count.
A game-time rainstorm hit for the rematch Wednesday afternoon, and the teams slogged their way to a soggy scoreless deadlock in a Schuylkill League Division I battle on Stadium Hill.
Tamaqua and Blue Mountain also remain tied atop the division standings with identical 6-1-1 records.
Outside of the league, however, it's a different story. The Raiders are 11-2-1 overall, with their only other defeat a 3-2 setback to Scranton Prep. Meanwhile, the Eagles are 6-5-1 and entered their Raider rematch off of a 2-1 loss to Pottsville Tuesday.
"This didn't hurt us," said Tamaqua coach Clem McCarroll. "We are still tied with them, so there's no damage done. Under these conditions, that's the best you can do."
The Raiders didn't help themselves, either. The Eagles now own the head to head tiebreaker for the division title should both teams win their remaining league
