PIAA SEMIFINALS GIRLS SOCCER:
After nearly 76 minutes of scoreless soccer, Boyertown had a golden opportunity to finally break the ice in Tuesday night’s PIAA Class 4A girls soccer semifinal. The Bears took advantage of it with a well-executed corner kick and will play for the state championship after a 1-0 win over Hempfield at Harriton High School.
The 5’11” Camilla Kuever put in a header off a corner kick from Mikayla Moyer with 4:11 remaining in regulation play after a tight defensive battle with only occasional chances for either side. The Bears (25-2) will play for the title Friday at 4 p.m. at Hersheypark Stadium against the winner between Pennridge and Conestoga.
“It’s amazing, it’s crazy, it’s unbelievable,” said Moyer. “I knew at the beginning of the season that we’d be good, but I didn’t know we’d be this good. It’s a dream come true.”
“It was a really tough game,” said Kuever. “Hempfield is a really good team. I feel like that’s our thing. Scoring late, winning the game. We’re really excited.”
Hempfield had 31 opportunities but put just six shots on goal.
Hempfield was looking for its first trip to the girls soccer PIAA finals since 2009. They won the District 3, Class 4A title this year. Boyerstown was the runner up in the District One 4A playoffs.
The Black Knight finish the season with a 19-4-1 record.
