Girls Soccer: Quaker Valley keeps playoff hopes alive with improbable road win

Written by Nicholas Tolomeo on .

It was the third section game of the season and Quaker Valley was coming off a 3-2 loss at Hopewell. The Quakers faced the unenviable task of playing the defending WPIAL and PIAA champions, Central Valley. The Quakers were overwhelmed in a 5-0 defeat. Fast forward 16 days later and now, following another 3-2 loss to Hopewell, and Quaker Valley had to play Central Valley again. This time the Quakers needed a win to keep their postseason hopes alive and this time the game was on the road. However Central Valley was reeling, hit with injuries and having lost and tied its previous two games. Quaker Valley took advantage of the reeling Warriors and pulled off a 2-0 upset win to shake up the Section 3-AA standings.

Hopewell (9-2, 8-1) leads the way ahead of another surprise in Montour (8-2, 7-1). Central Valley is currently sitting in the third and final playoff spot at 5-2-2 overall and 4-2-2 in the section ahead of Quaker Valley (6-5, 4-5). The Quakers have a major section contest today at home against Blackhawk (4-6-1, 2-6-1) that could further revive their playoff hopes with a win.
