Shutout Sends Seneca Valley Boys Soccer Into PIAA Semifinals

Posted on:

The safest bet to ensure a victory is to not allow your opponent to score. That’s exactly what the Seneca Valley boys soccer team did, defeating District 1 runner-up, Abington, 1-0 in the PIAA quarterfinals on Saturday at Chambersburg High School.

The shutout was the tenth of the season for the Raiders and senior goalkeeper William Gallagher.

The score remained scoreless through the first half until senior Jackson Wotus gave Seneca Valley the only score they would need at 28:24 remaining in the game.

The win improves the Raiders to 19-2-1 on the season. This is Seneca Valley’s first state semifinal appearance since 2015. They will travel back to Chambersburg High School on Tuesday to face the fifth place team out of District 1, Radnor, in the PIAA semifinals at 6:30 p.m. The 2015 semifinal game was also played at Chambersburg High School.
