    9/25/23: The Junior Lady Lions traveled to State College last Thursday to take on the Park Forest Middle School for a very intense rematch that will result in a true rivalry being born.. The game picked up where the last one left off with a very tight and balanced attack from each team.  Momentum seemed to build for the Lady Lions as the first half was about to end in another tie, but alas Natalie Bumbarger was able to put Altoona on the board with a crucial goal after getting an assist from Mikayla Patterson.  The Lady Lions went into halftime with an impressive 1-0 lead.  In the second half of the game, Park Forest’s team appeared to have had a fire lit beneath them and they played with a little more urgency.  Altoona matched Park Forest’s intensity and physicality, but ultimately Park Forest’s momentum shifted and led to them scoring 3 unanswered goals throughout the second half.  The 3-1 loss brings the Lady Lion’s record to 4-2-1. The Lady Lion’s focus is now set on taming the Tigers of Hollidaysburg in the Battle of Blair County which will be held at 3:30 today in Hollidaysburg.  Best of luck ladies!
