western-pennsylvaniaWestern Pennsylvania 2 Bethel Christian 1 - Plants and Pillars Invitational Semifinals

What a game, to expect your team to play in another tournament two days after winning the ESDAA (Eastern Schools for the Deaf Athletic Association) in a fabulous weather and riding a 10-hour trip back to WPSD, just to play in a rain-soaked field and also in a torrendous rain against a highly-skilled team in Bethel CHristian from Erie.

Scoring Summary
36th minute mark - They scored a goal (nice transition play) to put them up, 1-0.

1-0 halftime deficit.

43rd minute mark - We strike back, tying this game up at 1-1 on a Chad D'Amore's corner kick. Kyle Keracher ramming it home with a power kick.

67th minute mark - Another corner kick for us. Derek Forrester heading Chad D’Amore’s kick into the goal to give us a 2-1 lead and we battled it all the way until the last second. We tied the school record for the most wins in a season with 15.

We will play Plants and Pillars in the championship game of the Plants and Pillars Invitational tournament at Highmark Stadium, the home of the Pittsburgh Riverhounds. Our players are more excited about playing there and the coaches, too. (Contributed by Head Coach Val Wojton)
