Avonworth Boys Win WPIAL Soccer Championship

It was quite a night at Highmark Stadium for the Avonworth Boys Soccer Team!   They squared off in the WPIAL Class A Championship Game with Greensburg Central Catholic.  The Lopes took a 2-0 lead in the first half and carried that lead into the second half.  GCC made it 2-1 in the second half and with only minutes remaining it looked like the Lopes would be celebrating a championship.  However, with only 22 seconds remaining in regulation, GCC jarred the ball loose from the Lopes goalie and scored to tie the game.  
After two intense overtime periods in which both teams had multiple scoring chances, the teams were still tied at 2-2.  It took penalty kicks to determine the champ and our Lopes came out on top to win the WPIAL Class A Championship!  It was a tremendous display of resiliency and determination to pull out the win.  Way to go boys!  #WPIALCHAMPS !!!!!!
