Leopards shut out Warriors, 3-0
TribLIVE Sports Videos
The Belle Vernon Area boys' soccer team played what coach John Kerekes called, “our best game of the year” in its 3-0 win over Elizabeth Forward Saturday.
“I thought we controlled the game and forced them to do what we wanted them to do,” Kerekes added. “If we want to make the playoffs, we need to continue to play like this.”
Tyler Chiste, Evan Brown, and Tyler Seligas scored while the defense limited EF to one shot to secure the shutout for Sam Kovall.
EF (0-9-1, 0-5-1) heads to Yough tonight for a section rematch that saw Yough win 2-1 last Monday while BVA (4-6, 3-3) looks to avenge a section loss to TJ on Sept. 3 when it hosts the Jaguars Tuesday.

Jeremy Perez scored a career-high five goals to pace Ringgold (9-3, 4-2) to a Section 4 AAA win.

“This was a really good win for us and I am pleased,” Ringgold coach Frank Perez said. “Trinity is a young, but talented team and they have been playing everyone in the section tough.
“This was a good bounce- back win after our loss to Baldwin.”
