Wil­son dra­mat­i­cally wins 4A cham­pi­onship

The Southern Berks News - - SPORTS - Staff re­port

The Wil­son boys soc­cer team scored with 17 sec­onds re­main­ing to dra­mat­i­cally win the PIAA Class 4A cham­pi­onship on Nov. 17 at Her­shey­park Sta­dium.

Vic­tor Vot­tero’s shot was ruled to have just crossed the goal line as the score broke a score­less dead­lock and gave the Bull­dogs a 1-0 vic­tory for their first state ti­tle since 1992.

With the game ap­pear­ing des­tined for over­time, mid­fielder Devven Frey re­ceived the ball from Lu­cas Sarge, but was closed down by a Rad­nor de­fender, the ball spray­ing out to Vot­tero streak­ing down the left side. Rad­nor goal­keeper Henry Cooke closed him down and got a piece of the shot, but it trick­led to­ward goal. Rad­nor de­fender Josh Savadove stum­bled slightly as he raced back and cleared the ball off the line, the ball hit­ting the un­der­side of the cross­bar and out.

Wil­son capped its sea­son 23-4-1 and did not al­low a goal in its four PIAA tour­na­ment games. It was the Bull­dogs’ cham­pi­onship mo­ment after set­tling to sec­ond in the BCIAA and Dis­trict 3.
