For the first time since 2007, the Woodland Hills Soccer Association are Leggett Cup Champions!
The Under-14 Boys team with their trophies
…AND the Under-12 Boys with THIER trophies! This is the first time that Woodland Hills won the tournament in two different age groups.
The Under-14 team played at Loyalhanna Soccer Club in Latrobe, PA. They won the tournament by beating Plum 7-3 in the semifinals, and then defeating hosts Loyalhanna 5-4 in the finals.
The Under-12 team beat Scottdale 9-2 in the semifinals, before cruising to an 8-1 victory against Plum to claim the championship.
Woodland Hills hosted the Under-12 tournament for the first time since 2006. Games were held at the Westinghouse Recreation Center and Wilkins Elementary School.
Congratulations to all of the players, coaches, and volunteers for a great tournament.

Get on your boots!
Over the June 21-23 weekend, WHYSA sent our U-16 boys team to compete in the PA West State Open Tournament in Edinboro. The team is coached by head coach Jim Howell and assistants Pat Bachtell and Jim Kiley. The team won both its Saturday games to get a berth in the semifinals of the tournament, but went on to lose to Beaver 3-1 in the semifinals on Sunday.
U-12 Boys Finalists
Over the June 14-16 weekend, WHYSA sent three teams to the PA West Soccer State Open Tournament in Edinboro. We sent Jim Howell’s U-19 boys squad, Jim Kiley’s U-12 division 5 boys squad, and Jeff Freiwald’s U-12 boys division 6 team.
Congratulations to the U-19 boys and the division 6 U-12 boys for getting past the round-robin stage, and winning the semifinal to reach the finals of their respective divisions! Sadly both teams lost their final matches but what a great showing from both teams.
