After a year experimenting with a condensed playoff format, the Catholic League will expand it this time around in the name of fairness.
In the first season as a part of the PIAA, the Catholic League played an eight-team league tournament last year, with six teams advancing from the Red Division and two from the Blue.
This year, 12 teams will make the tournament — six from each division. Play begins Monday.
After getting out of the gate with a 10-0 record and a No.1 ranking in the Southeastern Pennsylvania Soccer Coaches Association poll, Council Rock North is 1-1-1 in its last three games including a 2-2 double-overtime tie with host William Tennent in a Suburban One National Conference game 10-9.
The Indians needed a goal with seven minutes left in regulation from Billy McConnell to tie the game.
Phil Marks preserved the shutout for the Indians with 12 saves.
Jarvis Lynch picked up a pair of goals and led Lamberton past host Parkway Center City, 4-3.
Trey Mason and Nil-Cludly Pierre also scored for the Blue Devils and Hamed Bandini notched a hat trick for Parkway.
