Charleroi girls' soccer coach Jim Rue said he will give his team a well-deserved break today. That's because the Lady Cougars picked up their third win of the week Wednesday, rolling past Beth-Center, 8-1, in Section 2 A.

Charleroi (5-1, 3-1) bolted to a 5-0 halftime lead as Halee Fedrick and Kyra Watkins scored two goals each.

Beth-Center (2-3, 1-3) scored to make it 5-1 in the second half before the winners scored three goals to win going away.

Ashley Ribau had two goals and Rachel Ritzer and Jessica Day had one each for the Lady Cougars.

“I thought we played really well,” said Rue. “Our passing was crisp and we were efficient with our shooting, especially after playing three games in a row.”

Charleroi, which trails South Allegheny (5-2, 4-0) in the standings, has a big game Friday at Serra (6-1, 3-1).

“I'm going to give the girls a rest before we go to Serra,” Rue said.

BV Area 6, West Mifflin 0

The Lady Leps (5-2, 3-1) picked up a big win in Section 4 AA against West Mifflin (2-4, 2-3).

“I thought we played a good game,” said coach Paul Sasko. “We jumped out to a 4-0 lead and then I got a chance to let a lot of girls play, which is always nice.”

Sam Mendicino had three goals for BVA while Hayden Pascoe had two. Megan Lovett had the other goal.

Ashly Gagliardi and Kaity Watson shared the shutout in goal.

Baldwin 7, Ringgold 0

The Lady Rams (2-5, 2-3) got shellacked by Section 4 AAA co-leader Baldwin (6-1, 4-0).

The loss was the third straight for Ringgold.

Elizabeth Forward 4, McGuffey 0

The Lady Warriors (6-2-1, 4-1) remained in second place in Section 4 AA with the shutout win, their fourth consecutive victory.

EF got two goals from Rachel College and one each from Josie Madden and Ali Pastore as the Lady Warriors scored all four goals in a six-minute span.

Jen Keefer picked up her fifth shutout in goal.

Yough 13, Uniontown 0

The Lady Cougars (5-1, 3-0) kept rolling in Section 1 AA as Theresa Merlino, Natalie Luppold and Shawna Zaken had three goals each and Franki Berarducci had two.

Yough stormed to a 9-0 lead in the first half.

“We started fast and played well,” said coach Dan Appolonia. “After that, it was a lot of passing it around.”

Sam Maughan and Ellie Balko each had goals for Yough.

S. Allegheny 5, Bentworth 0

The Lady Bearcats (4-4, 3-2) missed a chance to pull into a tie for the lead in Section 2 A as South Allegheny (5-2, 4-0) held on to sole possession of the lead.
