Hempfield Claims L-L Soccer Title in PK's


Warwick's bid to win the school's first ever Lancaster-Lebanon League boys soccer championship fell short in heartbreaking fashion this afternoon.

The Warriors scored in the first half before Hempfield netted two unanswered second half goals. Austin Hoke headed in the equalizer with 22 minutes to play.

Both teams had opportunities but failed to score in two overtime periods. After both teams made four of five penalty kicks, Hempfield's Kyle Bitterman buried a sudden death PK to give the Knights the championship.

Watch highlights from the match at Manheim Central and see below for descriptions:



1. Off Asher Klahold's free kick and Ryan Bertrando's assist, Nick Weit opens the scoring 10:36 into the match. 1-0 Warwick.

2. Zach Hollinger ties the game eight minutes into the second half.

3. Near the midway point of the half, Connor Goldsmith gives the Knights the lead 2-1.

4. Hoke ties the match at two 1:44 later.

5. Tanner Biemsderfer stops Tyler Boruff's shot with a diving save in the second overtime.

6. The game goes to penalty kicks.

7. Each team has made four with one Hempfield player, William Gately, to go. Biemsderfer makes a game-saving stop.

8. The teams are tied after regulation, two overtime periods and the initial set of penalty kicks. The match will be decided on sudden death penalty kicks. Hempfield goalie Travis Worra stops Klahold's shot.

9. Bitterman buries the following kick for the championship.
