Live blog, PIAA Class AAA girls soccer final … Peters twp. vs. Archbishop Wood

Peters Township 1, Archbishop Wood 0

Peters Township dominated match, could have been 4-0, 5-0. If Archbishop Wood was the No. 4 team in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America rankings, Peters Township is a top-two team.

4:30 p.m. – Veronica Latsko's shot saved by goalie, rebound goes right to Dani Hume, who buries it. PT 1-0 in the 65th minute.

4:24 p.m. – Gotted booted off for a few. Are we headed toward a scoreless tie and co-champions?

Why does the PIAA determine every other match by penalty kicks if there's a tie after two overtimes but declare co-champs in the final?

Be consistent PIAA.

3:56 p.m. – Halftime, Peters Township 0, Archbishop Wood 0. PT has 7 shots to 1 for the Wood, which is ranked No. 4 in the country by the NSCAA.

3:46 p.m. – Dani Hume just misses header off Spamer cross. PT looking good.

3:41 p.m. – Shelli Spamer hustle play where she heads ball twice to herself and gets quality shot that hits post at 13:49 mark. Forty seconds later, Spamer gets another quality opportunity but Wood defender Brianna Heck saves goal.

3:35 p.m. – Archbishop Wood's Monica Re blasts shot off post. Still scoreless.

3:22 p.m. – PT defender Brroke Smith clears a Archbishop Wood corner kick with a header but gets knocked on the side of the head on the play. She comes out of game.

3:09 p.m. – Lineups being announced. Not too far off schedule.

3:06 p.m. – The press box at Hersheypark Stadium is hotter than a sauna. Better than being cold. By the way, the hot chocolate at the stadium is Swiss Miss. Where's the Hersheys?

Prediction: Someone will score. Might not be until penalty kicks, but someone will score.

Oh, there's no shootout at the end? Huh. I had a feeling we'd see at least two goals in the second half, maybe 2 by PT, 2 by Archbishop or 1 each.

Apart from the first 15 minutes or so, this was a dominant performance by Peters. Congratulations to them.

Congratulations! I am very pleased to hear this news. I am sure they must be very happy for their success. And by the way, I have a daughter who loved sports, especially softball. And she was very active in softball club at her school. I strongly support all positive activities carried out by my daughter.
