It hasn't happened many times this season, but the Monessen boys found themselves down a goal in a non-section tilt at McKeesport on Saturday.

That didn't last long, though, as the Greyhounds scored four goals before halftime to take a commanding lead enroute to a 7-2 win.

“We trailed but wow, did we respond well by halftime,” Monessen coach Sam Perry said. “All season we have responded well after giving up a goal.”

Luke Doptis recorded a hat trick while Justice Rice, Blair Madison, Josh Kucmeroski, and Adam Pesi each added one goal apiece.

“We played well today and I was pleased with how we moved the ball,” Perry added. “I was glad to see us scores on four corner kicks and it is a hard thing to do.”

First place in Section 4 A will be on the line Tuesday when Monessen (7-0) heads to Beth-Center.

Ringgold 1,Mt. Pleasant 0

Ringgold went on the road and earned a hard-fought non-section win.

The Rams (7-3) return to Section 4 AAA play Tuesday with a key match at Baldwin. The Rams trail Baldwin by a half-game for third place.

Carlynton 7,Bentworth 0

The Bearcats were shut out at home by red hot Carlynton, who won their fifth straight contest after starting with three losses.

Bentworth (1-4-2) looks to stay in the playoff race at Chartiers-Houston in a Section 4 A contest Tuesday.
