Boys Soccer: Quaker Valley clinches section title

Written by Nicholas Tolomeo on .

Quaker Valley has clinched an outright section title and it did so with an emphatic run of defensive dominance. After a wild and uncharacteristic 6-5 win at Beaver Area back on Sept. 15, the Quakers defense would bear down. After allowing five goals against the Bobcats, Quaker Valley would not allow five goals combined in its next eight section games. The Quakers (11-2-1, 9-0) will be outright Class 2A Section 4 champions and their game Tuesday night at South Side Beaver will only determine whether or not they are undefeated section champions. Since the 6-5 win at Beaver, Quaker Valley has shut out New Brighton twice, Montour, Beaver and Central Valley.

The Quakers will close out their regular season with a trio of competitive non-section contests against Sewickley Academy, Canon-McMillan and Keystone Oaks.


Girls Soccer: Quaker Valley jockeying for playoff positioning

Written by Nicholas Tolomeo on .

Quaker Valley has found a way to win the close games this year but it has also been on the losing end of some lopsided decisions. The formula has worked so far for the Quakers, who are 5-4-1 overall and 4-2-1 in Class 2A Section 1. Quaker Valley has gone 2-0 in one-goal games in section play this season and it defeated Keystone Oaks, 2-0, in the section opener. In a recent 1-0 win over Beaver, Annie Luptak scored the game-winner with 10 minutes remaining in regulation. Goalie Mikaela Felix made seven saves in the game against the Bobcats who were ranked No. 4 at the time.

But it has also been on the wrong end of a 6-0 decision, a 4-1 decision and a 4-0 decision. The Quakers will look to avenge 6-0 defeat when it hosts Freedom Monday night at 7:30 p.m. Freedom is 12-0, in first place in the section and ranked No. 1 in Class 2A.

After Freedom the race for playoff spots in the section is wide open. Beaver (6-3, 5-2), Quaker Valley (5-4-1, 4-2-1), Avonworth (7-4-1, 3-3-1) are in playoff position right now with South Allegheny (3-6, 2-3) and Keystone Oaks (3-8, 1-7) in the mix also. After the Freedom showdown, Quaker Valley travels to Steel Valley on Wednesday before hosting South Allegheny next Monday.
