Four members of the Old Forge High School Varsity Soccer team played in the UNICO Scranton Soccer Cup All-Star game held July 22 at the University of Scranton’s Fitzpatrick Field.

Matt Colianni, Mike Polasky and Jason Sniegowski played in the boys’ game, while Jess Casey became the first member of the Blue Devils to play in the girls’ contest. All four players suited up for the North squads.

Old Forge Head Coach John Argonish also served as an assistant for the North boys.

Casey played well defensively for the North during its 4-2 win over the South in the ninth annual game.

In the boys’ game, Sniegowski made one save while shutting out the South in the first half of play, spurring the North to a 3-1 win.

Polasky and Colianni also played well defensively as the North held the South without a goal for much of the match.
