The Gateway varsity girls soccer team was unable to solve Peters Township's defense, and the No. 1 seed defeated the Gators, 3-0, in a WPIAL Class AAA semifinal game Wednesday evening at Baldwin.

Gateway, the No. 5 seed, fell to 16-4-1 with the loss. It played in the WPIAL semifinals for the first time in the program's 27-year history.

Despite the loss, the Gators remain alive and will play Bethel Park on Saturday in the WPIAL consolation contest. The time and location of the game is to be determined Thursday.

Gateway will play for a spot in the PIAA playoffs, which begins Tuesday. The top three WPIAL teams in Class AAA advance to states.

The Gators and Bethel Park met in the regular season, with Bethel Park coming out on top, 4-0.

Seneca Valley, the No. 2 seed, upended Bethel Park, 1-0, in Wednesday's other semifinal.

Peters Township gained the upper hand early in Wednesday's game with a goal 10 minutes into the contest.

The Indians added two insurance goals in the second half to set the final.
