TribLIVE Sports Videos
With three straight wins and two consecutive shutouts, Knoch's girls soccer team seems more than ready to dive into the thick of section play.
The Knights improved to 3-1 overall and 2-0 in Section 2-AA with a 5-0 win at Deer Lakes (1-1, 1-1).
Lexie Galbreath earned the shutout victory in goal. Gabi Lassinger scored twice, while Kaelyn Oskin and sisters Abbey and Allie Gore each found the back of the net once.

Knoch is tied with Mars and Highlands in the section. The Knights finished third behind the Planets and Golden Rams a year ago.
Plum 5, Allderdice 0 — Aaliyah Odom's hat trick and Ashley Amato's two goals gave Plum (6-0, 2-0) more than enough offense to top Allderdice (2-2, 0-2) in Section 3-AAA play.
Highlands 4, Indiana 0 — Kayla Beale scored twice, and goalie Sam Kovach made one save to earn the Section 2-AA shutout for Highlands (3-1, 2-0).
Riverview 2, St. Joseph 0 — Two goals from Nikki Polens made the difference in the Section 4-A contest. Gabriella DiPietro earned an assist for Riverview (1-3, 1-1), and Gina Santoriello and Megan Moroney combined to shut out St. Joseph (0-4, 0-1).
Fox Chapel 3, Shady Side Academy 0 — Goaltender Vanessa Blazer kept the ball out of the net for Fox Chapel (3-1), and Dixon Veltri, Lauren Kelly and Margaux Everingham each scored in a nonsection game.
Shady Side Academy (3-1) had outscored its previous three opponents, 13-0.
