    Congrats Lady Hounds on your repeat D-10 Class A Championship! Good Luck in your journey to States!

    I read in your article about District 10 Committee decisions that in the future you may write about the Committee’s decisions on soccer playoff game sites. Don’t forget to include a discussion about Wilmington, the #1 seed, having to travel 1 hr 15 min to play Iroquois, who had to travel 20 min. Guessing it probably had to do with the Committee wanting to schedule a double-header and 3 of the 4 teams playing were from Erie. I didn’t hear any complaints from Wilmington fans, though. I think we were thankful to not have to travel all the way to Harbor Creek, which is what had been rumored before the site was announced.

      Hound Dog,
      Not sure I will ever write about site decisions unless it is really out of left field. There is usually some explanation for all site selections. Like you said, 3 of 4 teams from Class A from Erie didn’t help Wilmington. The ironic thing is Wilmington could have affected Tuesday’s sites. With Wilmington’s win, the Class AA boys champion tomorrow might have to play in the south with Wilmington in the first round of the PIAA playoffs. Of course the PIAA could make Wilmington come north again if General McLane wins but who knows.
