'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Knoch's boys soccer team celebrated Labor Day weekend by logging plenty of overtime.

On Tuesday, the players completed their work in regulation time.

The Knights remained unbeaten with a 5-0 home victory over Kittanning in Section 2-AA play. Josh Gizienski scored twice, and Ben Andrews, Brandon Vargo and Devin Sherman each added a goal.

Knoch (1-0-2) claimed the Shaler tournament title this weekend with penalty-kick wins over Plum and Penn-Trafford — the WPIAL recognizes only regular-season results through overtime, though, so both scores went in the books as 1-1.

Goalkeeper Brett Miner made three saves in the penalty kick portion of the title game against Penn-Trafford, and his performance earned him MVP honors at the tournament.

Kiski Area 3, Penn-Trafford 0 — Dakota Lange found the back of the net twice, Ryan Canner added a goal for Kiski Area (1-1, 1-0) and Brandon Smail made five saves in goal during a Section 1-AAA victory.

Shady Side Academy 2, Highlands 1(OT) — Chris Vahang scored early in the first overtime period to lead Shady Side Academy (2-1, 1-0) to a Section 2-AA road win. Victor Nelson scored, and Phil King made 12 saves for Highlands (0-1, 0-1).

Springdale 6, Trinity Christian 0 — Taran Roesch finished with four goals, and Adam Winklmann and Zach Acheson each had two assists to pace Springdale (1-2) in a nonsection blowout.

Valley 1, Derry 0 — Ethan Walkowiak headed in a corner kick from Luke Thimons in the second half for the Section 1-AA game's lone goal. Josh Noel made five saves for Valley (1-0, 1-0).

Burrell 3, East Allegheny 1 — Justin Schwartz made 14 saves in net, and Cory Mazary, Josh Wertkin and Jon McAfoose each scored for Burrell (1-0, 1-0) in the Section 1-AA game.

Girls volleyball

Kiski Area 3, Laurel Highlands 0 — Rachel Frye accumulated 15 kills, and Liz Recchia earned 17 assists for Kiski Area (1-0, 1-0) during the Section 1-AAA victory.

Freeport 3, Ford City 0 — Zoe Pawlak and Alexis Schrecongost combined for 20 kills and six blocks to highlight Freeport's nonsection win.

Burrell 3, Highlands 0 — Sabrina Christy served four aces, and Taylor Middleby added three for Burrell (1-0, 1-0) in a Section 4-AA match.

Knoch 3, Valley 0 — Mary Zellhart logged 23 service points, and Celina Sanks registered 12 kills for Knoch (1-0, 1-0) in a Section 4-AA game.

Boys golf

Freeport 206, Knoch 219 — Audrey Clawson shot a 2-over-par 38 at Buffalo Golf Course, and Mickey Frazetta followed with a 39 in a nonsection win for Freeport (5-1).

Valley 238, Burrell 263 — Nick Licata shot a match-low 40 to lead Valley in a nonsection win at Buffalo Golf Coruse.

Girls tennis

Valley 4, Kittanning 1 — Emily Armstrong, Catherine Armstrong and Hannah Albright each won decisively in singles play for Valley, and the duo of Megan Hill and Julia Westerman won a three-set clash at first doubles.
