Plum duo selected to all-star game
Plum seniors Corey Williams and Stephen Hemmerle have been selected to play in Saturday's Western Pennsylvania Soccer Coaches Association all-star event at the main stadium at Moon High School.
The day will consist of three games involving 90 of the top high school senior boys soccer players from around Western Pennsylvania.
Several of the players in the games are All-WPIAL and all-state selections.
The first game is at 11 a.m. and will involve the all-star players from Class A, with a game involving stars from Class AA at 1 p.m.
The finale will feature all-stars from AAA and all-state performers, regardless of classification. That game will be at 3.
Williams, a speedy forward for the Mustangs, scored three goals in his final varsity season. That total ranked second on the team behind sophomore Ryan Smith.
While Williams was making plays up top, Hemmerle anchored the Plum defense.
He battled through injury late in the season.
Plum finished its season 6-8-2 overall and 4-8 in Section 3-AAA play.
The Mustangs won three of their final four games, including a 2-1 overtime victory at Woodland Hills and a 1-0 triumph against Penn Hills at home.
Williams and Hemmerle weren't the only players from Section 3 to be invited to play in the AAA/All-State game.
Also selected were defenseman Patrick Sproule and midfielder Justin Beiriger from Pittsburgh Central Catholic and midfielders Jack Dickens and Shota Furuhata from Fox Chapel.
