For the third straight year, the Peters Township girls soccer team has advanced to the Class 4A WPIAL semifinals.

The top-seeded Indians knocked off No. 8 Seneca Valley at home, 1-0, in the quarterfinals on Thursday.

Irene Doleno scored the lone goal of the game for the Indians in the first half, assisted by goalkeeper, Emma Sawich.

It was the ninth shutout of the season for the Indians out of their 11 wins.

Peters Township will host No. 5 North Allegheny on Monday at 6:30 p.m. in a rematch of last year’s semifinal game. The Tigers defeated the Indians in penalty kicks last year en route to their first WPIAl championship.
