Nicholas Tolomeo profiles the Penn-Trafford girls soccer team.
"In years past, the Penn-Trafford High School girls soccer team has had plenty of success in section play. The Warriors won at least a share of the Section 1-AAA title the past three seasons.
This season, they were seeking something more.
Section titles the past two seasons translated into zero playoff wins. Penn-Trafford was eliminated, 1-0, in the first round by Pine-Richland last year and 3-1 in the first round by Canon-McMillan two years ago.
"We talked about that in the preseason," coach Rick Nese said. "We have had our success in the section, and going into the season I asked the girls what would we rather have if they had to pick and choose, a section title and go out early or no section title and a deep playoff run. Everybody was on board. We needed to not put as much stock in a section title.""
