"HERSHEY, Pa. -- Things had gone so well for WPIAL teams in the PIAA soccer championships, the crash had to be ugly.

A controversial goal by Holy Ghost Prep 10:59 into the first overtime crushed West Allegheny's PIAA championship hopes and an unbeaten season in a 1-0 decision Saturday at Hersheypark Stadium.

The triumph by Holy Ghost Prep (20-4) ended the WPIAL's run of three state titles this year: Greensburg Central Catholic girls, Sewickley Academy boys and Central Valley girls.

It was a tough way to end that streak -- and West Allegheny's season."
