The PASC Vipers headed to Lancaster this past weekend looking to “strike” at Hempfield Fall Classic Tournament opponents. The team knew the competition was going to be tough and they rose to the challenge!
Our first opponent on Saturday was a talented PA Classics Premier. Both teams played a cautious first half, but the Vipers came out with intensity in the second half, scoring 3 goals to secure the victory. Our second opponent was Lower Merion Epic, a competitive team from PAGS. But that didn’t scare the Vipers as they held the run of play in scoring 3 goals against only 1 goal allowed.
Sunday was a new day, with an early start and a biting wind chill. The Vipers faced their toughest opponent Mechanicburg SC Tornados, out of Central PA. Both teams were undefeated going in and a battle ensued for the win and first place in the group. A great game ended in a 2-2 tie, which advanced both teams to the finals for a championship rematch.
From the kick-off of the championship match, play by both teams was aggressive and with purpose. The Vipers struck first just before half-time and then came out on fire to start the second half. The final score for the championship game was 4-0.
Congratulations Vipers on a great weekend of soccer and a great fall season!
