PIAA: Hempfield season ends with loss

PIAA Class 3A Quarterfinals:

The Hempfield Black Knights (15-7) lost in overtime 6-5 to Philadelphia St. Joseph’s Prep on Saturday afternoon.

St.Joseph scored two quick goals, one with just 25 seconds left in regulation after a restart and the heartbreaker at the 3:33 mark of overtime, by Hawks midfielder Teddy Fenlin proved to be the difference.

To start the game, Hempfield did a phenomenal job controlling the ball. They also did a good job of slowing things down against the zone throughout the game.

Max Grube’s 72nd goal of the year at 8:03 in the fourth would give the Black Knights a 4-3 lead they could not hold.

Hempfield came in second place this year in Section One and lost the LL-League title game to Manheim Township…..made it to the semifinals in District 3 playoffs but this team is good and will continue to be next year.
