Belle Vernon's Sarah McCullough (00) gets past McGuffey's Lizzie Riggle (18) to score Belle Vernon's second goal in the first half on Monday, September 16,2013, at Belle Vernon's Jim Weir Stadium.

Six different Lady Leopards scored in their easy, 9-0, Section 4 AA win over McGuffey.

BVA coach Paul Sasko was pleased with the effort, considering the team had been off for seven days.

“We haven't played in a week, but the girls came out ready to play tonight,” he said. “It was nice to get all of the girls plenty of time.”

Hayden Pascoe led the way with a hat trick while Sarah McCullough, Ally Demko, Sam Mendicino, Caitlin Caldwell, Kelsy Lawson, and Marissa Hasson each added a tally. Kaity Watson stopped three shots in goal to earn the shutout.

BVA (4-2, 2-1) heads to West Mifflin Wednesday for a section tilt.

Charleroi 3,Bentworth 1

Kyra Watkins scored twice and Halee Fedrick added a tally for Charleroi in its important Section 2 A road win.

Cassidy Costello scored Bentworth's lone goal.

Charleroi (3-1, 2-1) resumes tonight with an exhibition at Uniontown before hosting Beth-Center in a section match Wednesday. Bentworth (4-3, 3-1) heads to South Allegheny for a section tilt Wednesday.

Elizabeth Forward 11,East Allegheny 0

The Lady Warriors came out on fire Monday night and didn't cool down.

“The starters scored four or five real quick goals so I was able to filter in the younger girls,” EF coach Brandon Gerba said. “It was a good learning experience for a lot of the younger players.”

Liz Biddle and Julianna Jones both scored two goals while Ali Pastore, Rachel Collage, Sidney Bomeke, Josie Madden, Mary Cooper, Chelsea Marcase, and Bethany Fuga each added one tally.

Jen Keefer recorded four saves to earn her fourth shutout of the season.

EF (4-2-1, 3-1) is at Mt. Pleasant tonight in a non-section match before heading to McGuffey Wednesday for a section contest.

Yough 8,Waynesburg 1

Natalie Luppold scored three times, both Shawna Zaken and Franki Berarducci scored twice, and Corynn Appolonia scored her first varsity goal for Yough as the Lady Cougars scored early and often in its Section 1 AA win.

“We know this year we have to get scoring from different girls this year,” Yough coach Danny Appolonia said. “We played well as we had some girls hurt and some girls sick.

“A lot of girls got to play and it gets some younger girls some playing time and experience.

The win is the 14th section win in a row for Yough dating back to the start of the 2012 season.

Yough (4-1, 2-0) returns to section play Wednesday when it heads to Uniontown.

Serra Catholic 13,Monessen 0

The Lady Hounds were shut out on the road in a Section 2 A contest.

Monessen (0-5, 0-4) is off until Saturday when it hosts Chartiers-Houston in a section match.

Mt. Lebanon 5,Ringgold 0

Mt. Lebanon leapfrogged the Lady Rams in the Section 4 AAA standings with its win.

“We are going to go back to the drawing board,” Ringgold coach Tom Cameron said. “The kids try, but I think it is time to make some adjustments.

“The effort is there, but we have to tweak the lineup.”

Ringgold (2-4, 2-2) continues its tough section stretch Wednesday when it heads to Baldwin.


Charleroi 3,Beth-Center 2

Down 2-1 at the half, Charleroi put together a solid second half to pull out the non-section win.

“We played decent but we still have to finish more chances,” Charleroi coach Ron Hostovich said. “We really played well as a team in the second half.”

Liam Gedda, Brock Shannon and Zach Ames recorded tallies for the Cougars (4-3), who return to Section 6 AA play Tuesday when they head to Laurel Highlands.
