Boys Soccer: Quaker Valley's surprising playoff run continues

Written by Nicholas Tolomeo on .

Cinderella has taken on the form of Quaker Valley in this WPIAL postseason. The Quakers snuck into the playoffs by a half game, finishing in a tie for third place in Section 5-AA with a 6-5-1 record. With an overall record of 10-7-2, Quaker Valley had to play in a preliminary-round game where it snuck past Beaver Area, 2-1. Then came the shocker heard around the WPIAL, as the Quakers went on the road to No. 2 Mars and knocked off the Planets, 2-0. Mars had not lost to a Class AA team this season. Walter Hubsch and Fritz Wiltman netted goals for the upset-minded Quakers. The team was not done yet. They pulled off another upset in the WPIAL quarterfinals, downing No. 10 Shady Side Academy, 1-0, when Landon Narkevic scored with seven minutes remaining in regulation. It would be the only goal they needed as goalkeeper Jack Regueiro earned the shutout. Quaker Valley can now reach the WPIAL Class AA title game as a No. 15 seed if it is able to spring another upset when it plays No. 3 West Allegheny Monday night at 6 p.m. at Moon.
