Congratulations to the Boys’ Soccer team for a dramatic win over Greensburg Central Catholic in the WPIAL Single A Championship last night at Highmark Stadium.
The game remained tied 2-2 after regulation and two overtime periods, moving on to a shootout. In the first round of the shootout, both teams completed their kicks (5 players) to move it to sudden death. After one more Avonworth kick found the back of the net, back up goalie Luke Wagner stopped the game winning shot to give the Lopes the victory!
Goals in regulation were scored by Sam Guzzo and Jason Novosel. Special recognition to Timmy Stewart and Luke Wagner for outstanding goalie play and Jonathon Niklaus for man marking GCC’s best player #16 all night!
The boys record is now 20-0-1 and they move on the the PIAA state playoff rounds, with a first round game versus West Shamokin at Mars High School on Tuesday. Thanks to all for the wonderful fan support last night, hope to see everyone on Tuesday for a continuation of this magical run. Anyone dreaming of Hershey Kisses??
