West Mifflin is still attempting to put things together as it moves into the stretch run to the playoffs. But if the Titans showed anything in their 45-29 nonsection loss to Class AAAA Gateway, it was that they need to hold onto the ball a little better.

In the second quarter, West Mifflin (8-12) held a 14-11 lead but allowed Gateway (16-4) to come back thanks to several key turnovers midway through the period. Because of the Titans' mishandling of the ball, they scored just four points in the quarter fell into a 24-14 hole at intermission.

Guard Paige Flore led West Mifflin with 10 points.

Greensburg Central Catholic 63, East Allegheny 22 — Carolyn Appleby had 15 points to lead Greensburg Central Catholic (15-5, 10-1) to a Section 3-AA win. Katlyn Keenan scored 11 of the Wildcats' 22 points.

Seton-La Salle 81, Steel Valley 37 — Nicolette Newman scored a game-high 24 points and had 11 steals for Class AA No. 1 Seton-La Salle (19-1, 11-0) in Section 4. Sydney Smith led the Ironmen with 12 points.

Serra Catholic 66, Winchester Thurston 23 — Megan Sieg scored a game-high 13 points to lead the Eagles (17-2, 9-0) to a win over Winchester Thurston (10-8, 5-4) The Eagles have clinched the Section 4-A title.
