PV Lady Rams Advance to District Finals

October 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.

The second 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

October 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.

After 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 from Ventura.

Penns Valley will now play on Monday night at 5:30pm at Memorial Field in State College against Richland.

Penns Valley Clinches League Championship

October 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.

In 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.

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.

Girls' Soccer League Changes

May 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.
