PM Field Hockey team celebrating

Penn Manor earns state field hockey title

Congratulations to the Penn Manor field hockey team, which won the Pennsylvania AAA Championship title in field hockey after playing to a hard-fought 1-1 tie with Palmyra Saturday.

Penn Manor was down 1-0 late in the game when Cassie Kline scored a goal with 4 minutes to go, sending the game into overtime. After two exhausting, scoreless overtime periods — featuring some amazing saves by goalkeeper Allison Schaefer — Penn Manor and Palmyra were declared co-champions.

It’s the first time two teams have shared the title since 1994, when Emmaus and Council Rock played to an identical 1-1 tie.

The state title is Penn Manor’s first since 2008, and it caps an outstanding year for the field hockey team. The Comets were Section I champs, Lancaster Lebanon League Champions and placed third in District III.

What a way to end an outstanding season!
