Sheldon Shealer/ESPNHSA small group of students made the trip to cheer on Villa Joseph Marie in the state semifinals.It was 7:35 a.m. Wednesday morning and members of the Central Valley (Monaca, Pa.) girls’ soccer team trickled into class – they were visibly tired.
The night before, Central Valley was humbled 5-1 in a Pennsylvania Class AA state semifinal match. It wasn’t the margin of defeat that was the story. After all, longshot Central Valley lost to a Villa Joseph Marie (Holland, Pa.) team generally regarded as one of the strongest in the nation.
The story here was travel.
