Payback was sweet for both the varsity boys' and girls' soccer teams in their respective semi-final matches of the PAISAA Tournament on Tuesday, November 8. Both teams' opponents - Malvern for the boys' and Germantown Academy for the girls' - had defeated Hill in early-season matches this year. Tuesday, both the boys' and girls' traveled to their opponent's venues for their matches and returned home victorious; the boys' won 3-2, and the girls' won a penalty kick shootout 4-3 after regulation play and overtime ended in a 2-2 tie. With the victories, the boys' improved to 15-3-1, and the girls' to 16-2-1.
