"It was the night before they had a chance to make history on the soccer field, but the only concern the Peters Township girls' soccer team had was going to see the new Twilight movie.
When you make Hershey your destination three consecutive Novembers, one tends to have a calm, cool, no-worry attitude about situations like this as well as developing traditions.
For Peters Township, their mid-November tradition the past three years has been to travel to Hershey, practice at a local high school, eat at a local restaurant, tour Chocolate World, go see one of the movies in the Twilight saga and then go out and win a state championship.
The Indians became the first WPIAL girls soccer team to win three consecutive PIAA championships when it defeated Cumberland Valley, 1-0, Saturday at Hersheypark Stadium.
"The coaching staff suffers through the Twilight movies," coach Pat Vereb joked. "When it is opening night of Twilight, it is the most important thing in the world to them. When you are with 25 high school girls, the majority wins.""
