Girls Soccer: Key injury, tough foe spell PIAA doom for Greensburg C.C.

Written by Marky Billson on .

Marky Billson profiles the Greensburg Central Catholic girls soccer team.

"The 2014 Greensburg Central Catholic girls soccer team had a flip flop of sorts from their previous season.

Whereas the 2013 Centurions won the PIAA Class A championship but finished as the WPIAL runners-up, the 2014 team defeated Freedom Area, 9-1, in the WPIAL final before falling to Trinity of Camp Hill, 3-0, in the PIAA title match last Friday at Hersheypark Stadium.

"It would have been nice to get both of them for a change, but with every win, there's a loss," said Centurions coach Bryan Cartwright, who inherited this season's team after Ashley Shasko guided the Centurions to two consecutive state championships before leaving for the head coaching position at Saint Vincent College this season."

The Greensburg Central Catholic girls volleyball team claimed its first PIAA title Saturday at Johnstown Richland High School, but two previous matches played a huge part in the Centurions performance.

The Centurions captured the Class A title with a marathon 3-2 victory against defending PIAA champion Marian Catholic. It was the third five-set match in two weeks for the Centurions.

"We had been in pressure situations before and played in a fifth game [twice] before, so we knew what to expect," Greensburg Central senior outside hitter Megan Stunja said. "We never give up, no matter what the score is."

Greensburg Central Catholic claimed its second WPIAL title in three years with a hard-fought 3-2 victory against Bishop Canevin in the Nov. 1 title match after the Centurions fell behind, 2-1.
