HEPBURNVILLE - Owen Magee’s headball finish, off a Jamison Bohner free kick from just outside the penalty area, provided Selinsgrove with the only goal it needed in a  2-0 victory over Athens that decided the District 4 Class 3A boys soccer championship.

Nick Ritter added a later goal, and Cole Catherman totaled seven saves as Selinsgrove (18-2) secured its first district crown since 2007.

Selinsgrove will face District 2 champion Crestwood in the PIAA playoffs on Tuesday.

Magee scored 12:07 into the second half off Bohner's free kick, while Ritter, a freshman, scored with five minutes left in regulation for an insurance goal.
