Two Conestoga championship teams show their mettle and fought to the bitter end and beyond Thursday night at Teamer Field.
It was like something out of a movie, but the Pioneers would like to re-write the end to the drama that unfolded in back-to-back tie-breaker/heart-breaker games.
Conestoga Girls Fall to Central Bucks West in Second Shootout
In the first game of the double header the Conestoga girls played through two overtime periods and into a second round of penalty kick shoot-outs.
The girls game went well past the scheduled 7 p.m. start time for the boys, but nobody was paying attention to the clock... just the scoreboard.
At the end of two overtimes, The Pioneers were still deadlocked 1-1 against Central Bucks West. In the end it came to a second shootout round of penalty kicks before CB West edged out the Central League Champs by one single kick.
