Late Goal Sends Seneca Valley Back To WPIAL Championship Game

Posted on:

For the second time in three years, the Seneca Valley boys soccer team will be playing at Highmark Stadium for the Class 4A WPIAL Championship.

This time around, the top-seed Raiders punched their ticket with a 3-2 win against No. 4 Canon-McMillan at Mars High School in the WPIAL semifinals. Seneca Valley is hoping for a better result in the title game than a couple of years ago, entering the game undefeated and losing to North Allegheny, 2-1.

On Monday, senior AJ Mills scored the decisive goal with less than seven minutes left to break the 2-2 tie. Also scoring in the contest for the Raiders were seniors Jackson Wotus and Tanner Howard. Wotus was named First-Team All=Section earlier in the day.

For the Big Macs, Tommy Samosky and Austin McColpin both scored for Canon-McMillan. Samosky was named first-team and McColpin was a second-team all-section.

Seneca Valley improves to 16-2-1 and will face No. 2 Norwin in the Class 4A Championship Game at Highmark Stadium on Saturday at 5:45 p.m.
