WILLIAMSPORT - John Weimer is probably very grateful for any temporary lapse of short-term memory suffered by his Williamsport girls soccer team Tuesday night.
He would have much preferred them recalling last season's heartbreaking loss in a driving rain storm at Catoctin in the opening round of the playoffs than the relatively easy 8-2 win over the Cougars just three weeks ago.

No matter what the incentive, Williamsport's defense stepped up to spark a 2-1 win over Catoctin in the Class 1A West quarterfinals.
"Give credit to our five defenders for this one," said Weimer. "Offensively, we didn't control it the way we wanted to, but the defense really stepped up, went to the ball, and came up strong for us."
