Field Hockey: Penn-Trafford likely to host Class 2A final

Written by Joe Koch on .

All season long, Penn-Trafford, Woodland Hills and Oakland Catholic have competed in the WPIAL's Class 3A grouping in field hockey. But now that the season is entering its final week of the regular season, these three teams will move past the teams they have played during the regular season and begin a two-game tournament that will determine the WPIAL's entry into the PIAA 2A tournament.

On paper, it appears that Penn-Trafford would be a shoo-in for a berth in the statewide tournament. Coach Cindy Dutt isn't interested in scenarios or conjecture. And both Oakland Catholic's Paige Klouser and Woodland Hills' Jim Haberfield likely feel the same way.

Penn-Trafford likely will be the top seed in the the tournament. And, according to Dutt, the school will make itself available to host the WPIAL 2A final on Oct. 26. The Warriors could secure third place in 3A, Section 1 if they can defeat Norwin at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday in the Warriors' regular-season finale.

It won't be easy as the Knights stunned the Warriors 3-0 in the first meeting on Sept. 27. Even if the Warriors are swept by the Knights, they likely would finish any lower than fourth place.

Background: Momeyer is a big reason why Penn-Trafford is one of the top teams in Class 4A and has put itself in good position to win the Section 4 title. An all-section midfielder as a junior, Momeyer splits time between midfielder and forward. He's tied for the team lead with eight goals. Momeyer had a hat trick in a 3-0 win at Hempfield on Oct. 1. Penn-Trafford is 12-1 overall and 10-1 in the section. The Warriors travel to Plum for a non-section game tonight and host second-place Norwin in the section finale Thursday. Norwin, which hosts Latrobe in a section game tonight, is 8-1-1 in section play. The Knights defeated Penn-Trafford, 3-1, Sept. 22.
