Super Soccer Saturday

Peters Township soccer, boys and girls, did something our playoff football teams failed to do. Win in the postseason.

The Peters Township girls advanced to the WPIAL Class AAA championship for the first time. The match, against Mt. Lebanon, was this afternoon/evening at Elizabeth Forward High School.

Mt. Lebanon jumped out to a three-goal lead and held on for a 3-2 victory. Mt. Lebanon won its sixth WPIAL soccer title.

The Peters Township boys are currently playing Fox Chapel in a rematch of 2003 title game. No score.

* Nick Wilcox draws a penalty in the box. Greg Weimer makes PK as PT takes a 1-0 lead at halftime.

PT up 2-0 after a Charlie Swisher goal. One minute remaining.

Final: Peters Township 2, Fox Chapel 0. Indians' first WPIAL title since 2003 and sixth overall (they won four in Class AA in the late 80s). Peters Township of course is also the defending state champion.

Kevin,

I said it before and I will say it again.

Over the past 25 years, Peters Township boys soccer is the best sports program in Washington County.
