WPIAL Postgame Report: Pine-Richland rallies for hard-fought draw with Butler

PSN FEATURED GAME – WEEK 1

FINAL: Butler 2, Pine-Richland  2 (Class 4A — Section 1) 

In Pittsburgh Soccer Now‘s 2020 season opening ‘Game of the Week’ — Pine-Richland rallied from a 2-0 deficit to draw Class 4A, Section 1 rivals Butler 2-2 at Pine-Richland Stadium on Monday night.

Landon Mohney scored twice for Butler, but the Rams came roaring back with two second half goals from Will Sang and Mack Allen.

Pine-Richland’s Jordan Wiegand joined us for a Zoom Postgame interview to talk about his team’s valiant effort to battle back against a playoff team from a year-ago that features one of the top boys players in the WPIAL Class 4A (Mohney).

Key Moments:

Second overtime period ends with neither side able to push through for the golden goal. Both teams begin the season with 0-0-1 records in one of the toughest sections around, Class 4A, Section 1.

1st OT ends with Butler generating the better chances, but still no goal.

OVERTIME at PINE-RICHLAND!! The Rams head into the extra period with the momentum. Can they complete the comeback?

Mack Allen in on partial break — puts it right in center of goal.

HALF – BUTLER 1, P-R 0

38′ – Pine-Richland with a great chance on first corner attempt of 1st half — mad scramble for ball in goal box with bodies everywhere — but somehow Butler clears it.

30′ – Pine-Richland with more possession through large portions of 1st half since giving up the early goal, but unable to convert anything.

4′ – GOAL — Butler 1, Pine-Richland 0: Just a few minutes in, Butler draws a PK — and Landon Mohney delivers the PK finish for his first goal of the season!
