PV Lady Rams Advance to District Finals
29 - On a fantastic night for soccer at State College's Memorial
Field, Penns Valley put in their best performance of the year to defeat
the Richland Lady Rams 2-1. Penns Valley started strong and controlled
the flow of play for most of the first half. With accurate passing out
of the middle and strong play on the wings, the PV Lady Rams kept the
pressure on Richland but were unable to find the finishing touch.
Richland struck first about 25 minutes into the half off a direct kick.
They took the kick from 35 yards out and lofted a ball behind the PV
defense which one of their forwards headed towards the goal. Ally Lush
was able to keep the header out of the net but Richland was first to
the rebound and knocked it home to go up 1-0. Within two minutes, Penns
Valley had the answer. A direct kick was awarded to PV just outside the
Richland penalty box to the side of the field. Sarah Montminy took the
kick and tucked a perfect ball over the Richland wall and into the
upper back corner of the net. With about four minutes left in the half,
Penns Valley got the game-winner. After a corner kick, the ball was
cleared out of the penalty area by the Richland defense but Ali Yarger
came up from her defensive position and lofted the ball deep over the
keeper's head and under the crossbar to make it 2-1.
half saw Penns Valley continue the fine play from the first half.
Richland had just one shot and the PV Lady Rams kept the ball in
Richland's half of the field most of the time. Despite numerous
opportunities to score, PV was unable to get the insurance goal but
played a strong defensive game to keep Richland's fast forwards away
from the goal. Ally Lush made one big save when she came out on a 50-50
ball and was able to keep the Richland forward from getting off a shot.
Penns Valley will now travel to Hollidaysburg on Thursday to take on Bishop McCort, last year's district champion, at 5:30pm.
Lady Rams Win District Quarterfinals
25 - On Tuesday night Bishop Guilfoyle visited Penns Valley in a
District 6 quarterfinal match. The Lady Rams made it more exciting than
it should have been but came away the winners, 4-2. Penns Valley
started out the game by dominating play and keeping it in BG's end of
the field. They were passing well but could not get any shots through
the crowd of BG players inside the penalty area. BG struck first 13
minutes into the game on their first shot of the game. They played a
long ball over the PV defense that bounced around on the edge of the
penalty area before being chipped in by a BG forward. One minute later
the Lady Rams finally answered when Sarah Montminy took a corner kick
and found Ella Myer on the near post who headed the ball past the
keeper. At 16:40 Myer struck again when she made a long cross into the
goal area which the keeper mishandled and bounced into the net.
halftime, Bishop Guilfoyle came out strong for the first few minutes
but the Lady Rams seized control of the game again. Once again Penns
Valley took many shots but it was just too crowded inside the penalty
area and none of the shots got through. BG struck next midway through
the half on their second shot of the game to make the score 2-2.
Finally at 71:38 Mona Bryant crossed the ball from the side and found a
wide open Liz Ventura in front of the net who buried the gamewinner to
make it 3-2. At 77:19 Mona Bryant added the insurance goal on an assist
Penns Valley will now play on Monday night at 5:30pm at Memorial Field in State College against Richland.

Lady Rams Shut Out by Juniata
18 - The Lady Rams traveled to Mifflintown on Thursday to take on the
Indians and looked tired in a 0-3 loss. The game was largely played at
midfield and both teams had trouble playing much of a control game on
the hard, rough, game surface. Juniata struck first midway through the
first half and led at half 1-0. Two more goals during the second half
sealed the win for the Indians.
After the varsity game, the Penns Valley JV lost to the Juniata JV 0-2.
Penns Valley Clinches League Championship
17 - Philipsburg-Osceola came to play on Wednesday evening and, unlike
their first meeting, gave the Lady Rams all the could handle before
finally succumbing in double overtime, 2-1. The Mounties came out
firing and Ally Lush was forced to make a nice diving save just a
minute into the game. This seemed to energize PO and they pushed hard
and put the Lady Ram defense under a lot of pressure. Eight minutes
into the game, they finally hit paydirt as a hard, low shot, beat the
diving Lush into the net. It was a back-and-forth game for the rest of
the half until with less than ten minutes to go the Lady Rams finally
started pressing the attack. The score remained 0-1 at halftime.
the second half, Penns Valley came out playing better soccer and put
the PO defense under pressure. The Mounties packed in the defense,
however, and Penns Valley was unable to find room to get off good
shots. Finally, in the 65th minute, Ella Myer beat a defender to the
end line and took the ball right in on the goalie. The goalie guessed
pass and cheated out of the goal too far and Myer buried the
tough-angle shot in the back of the net to tie the score. The rest of
the half saw PO pack it in on defense and look for the occasional
breakaway but neither side could score. The first ten minute overtime
was more of the same. One minute into the second overtime, Sarah
Montminy finally found some room to maneuver from 25 yards out, beat
three defenders and launched a shot past the diving PO keeper to earn
the golden goal.
Penns Valley now starts district play as the
second seeded team (Bishop McCort is first) and will host Bishop
Guilfoyle on Thursday, October 25, at 7:30pm. The Penns Valley boys
will play first that night at 5:30pm against Belleville. The district
bracket will be posted here as soon as it is released.

Bryant who got behind the defense and beat the keeper again. Kala Fultz

Katie Deardorff at 32:40.
Two minutes into the

Lush and Mona Bryant combined in goal for the shutout.

come from behind victory over the Lady Tigers, 2-1. The Lady Rams

the nine minute mark. From there it was a hard fought back-and-forth
game as both teams hustled up and down the field but could not convert
on any scoring opportunities. The score at half time remained 0-1.
Lady Rams came out harder in the second half and had some
opportunities but could not find the back of the net. Finally, in the
59th minute, Ella Myer slipped a pass to Mona Bryant behind the defense
and she collected the pass and buried it past the keeper from 10 yards
out. Seven minutes later, Penns Valley had a corner kick and as the
ball came across the goal mouth, an East Juniata player reached up and
grabbed it with both hands, resulting in a penalty kick. Sarah Montminy
converted the kick to put the Lady Rams up for good, 2-1. The defense
held strong in the closing minutes as the Lady Tigers tried to ratchet
up the pressure.

The second half saw
much of the same kind of action, with a hard fought game in the
midfield area. Penns Valley was unable to capitalize on their
opportunities, however, while Juniata did. The lopsided score certainly
does not reflect how the game was played as there was a lot of
back-and-forth action between two evenly matched teams.

great passing and possession game to keep the Lady Rams on the run
during the first half. The Penns Valley defense held firm, however,
until midway through the half when one of the Wildcats launched a shot
from a bad angle at the side of the field that found its way over Ally
Lush's outstretched hand and under the crossbar.

Girls' Soccer League Changes
7 - Penns Valley Girls' Soccer will now be part of a new conference
called the Mountain League. The Central Mountain Girls' Soccer League
(CMGSL) and the Mountain Athletic Conference (MAC) were both scrapped
after last year. The new Mountain League will be split into a large
school division and a small school division. The large school division
includes Lewistown, Bellefonte, Indian Valley and Central Mountain. The
small school division includes Penns Valley, Huntingdon, Bald Eagle,
Philipsburg-Osceola and Tyrone. The Lady Rams will play each small
school twice and each large school once. Each division will crown a
champion at the end of the year.
The dissolution of
the CMGSL brings to an end some always-entertaining league matchups
with Juniata and East Juniata. There was enough room in the schedule,
however, that the Lady Rams were able to schedule both teams twice in
non-league action so the rivalry will continue, but without the league
championship riding on the line.
