Mercury Girls Soccer Roundup: Pope John Paul II earns berth in PAC playoffs

The Pope John Paul II girls soccer team pushed their season finale back as far as it could possibly go.

Then took it a step further.

On the eve of the 2018 Pioneer Athletic Conference Final Four, Pope John Paul II claimed the final spot in the playoffs with a 2-1 win over Upper Perkiomen in double-overtime on Monday afternoon.

Mary Kate Shannon scored the game-winning goal while Amaya Ransom had a first-half score for PJP (8-2 PAC Frontier, 9-4 PAC overall). Stacy Kormos made five saves in goal to preserve the win while Delanie Didiier and Rayna George came away with assists.

Upper Perk’s Phoebe Pardy had a goal with an assist from Leah Marks while Hannah Landis made eight saves.

As a result, Pope John Paul II will face top-seeded Owen J. Roberts (9-0-1 PAC Liberty, 12-0-1 PAC overall) in the opening round of the PAC playoffs at OJR Tuesday night. Pottsgrove will take on Spring-Ford in the other semifinal. Both games are slated for 5 p.m.
