Creating scoring opportunities has not been a problem for Lehighton and Saucon Valley this season.
Converting opportunities has been another story, however.
Thursday afternoon in the quarterfinal round of the District 11 Class AA field hockey playoffs, that pattern continued.
Despite double figure shot totals for both teams, numerous outstanding scoring opportunities, and several near misses, the ball found the back of the net just one time.
That goal came early in the opening half off the stick of Gwen Remaley and resulted in a 1-0 Lehighton victory.
