Butler Girls Soccer Advances To Class 4A WPIAL Title Game

Posted on:

Competing in its first WPIAL semifinal game since 2003, No. 2 Butler had a better result than they did 17 years ago, defeating No. 6 Moon, 2-1 in double overtime, to advance to the Class 4A WPIAL Championship Game.

Gabby Boden got the Golden Tornado on the board first with her goal, but Moon was able to tie it up in the second half to force the game into overtime.

In the 97th minute, Vanessa Drohan found the back of the net to clinch the WPIAL Championship Game berth.

Butler will face off against section rival, No. 5 North Allegheny, on Thursday at Gateway High School at 8 p.m.
