Senior Alina Mattson Reflects on her Second Trip to Haiti
I had an opportunity to travel to Haiti with an organization called Work my junior year at Sewickley Academy. What struck me about this organization was their integration into the communities and their promise to make families self-sufficient instead of offering outside solutions that would fix their problems short term. They do this by making sure both parents are in stable jobs and their children are placed in school. While in Haiti, we got to see first hand how Work functions and what they strive to achieve.

Saturday was the setting for the first round of the playoffs. The Panthers took to the field against Riverview at Montour High School. The first half saw both teams battle to get a rhythm for the game, however, neither team could find the back of the net. The second half was just as equally contested, however, Riverview struck first. With about 12 minutes left in the contest, the Panthers received a penalty shot and Alex Gordon scored the tying goal. For the next 10 minutes both teams had chances to score, but neither could muster the go ahead goal. But with about 2 minutes left in the game, Riverview scored the deciding goal to win 2-1 and end the Panthers season.
