ESU and West Chester were forced into penalty kicks after a 0-0 deadlock through 110 minutes of Friday afternoon’s PSAC semifinal.

Jenni-Lyn Williams was nearly eight months pregnant when she flew to Los Angeles to film an episode of the hit ABC television show “Shark Tank” in June.
The show’s producers were worried that Williams, who graduated from East Stroudsburg University in 2009, wouldn’t be able to board a plane that close to giving birth. But there was no way she was missing the opportunity to be one of the show’s entrepreneurs competing for business deals and to promote her new company “Snarky Tea.”
“I would have walked there if they wouldn’t have let me fly,” Williams said.
The “Shark Tank” episode airs 9 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 5 on ABC. Read the full story.
