Pitt Postgame: Interview with Head Coach Jay Vidovich after Panthers advance to first-ever College Cup

The Pitt Panthers are headed to its first ever College Cup with 3-0 win over Washington to continue a historic season.

FINAL: Pitt 3, Washington 0

In a tightly contested affair, only broken open by two late wonder goals from the middle of the field with the Huskies’ goalkeeper Sam Fowler pulled way off his line, Pitt secured its record-breaking 16th win of the season and advanced to the NCAA Tournament’s National Semifinal round, where they’ll take on the winner of Indiana-Seton Hall (Friday, Time TBD).  

Pitt’s goals came from Valentin Noel, Bertin Jacquesson and Veljko Petkovic. 

After the match, Pittsburgh Soccer Now‘s John Krysinsky took part in media zoom call with Panthers’ Head Coach Jay Vidovich, who is no stranger to the College Cup, having won a National Championship at Wake Forest in 2007.

Now, he has earned another trip to the Final Four, in his sixth year at the helm at Pitt.
