'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

The Charleroi girls' soccer team will play its biggest game of the season on Monday afternoon.

That's when the Lady Cougars travel to Glassport to take on South Allegheny for a share of the lead in Section 2 A.

Both Charleroi (8-1, 6-1) and South Allegheny (9-2, 7-0) set the stage for the showdown with easy wins Wednesday.

Charleroi beat Chartiers-Houston, 5-1, while SA drubbed Monessen, 11-0.

SA handed Charleroi its lone loss of the season, 1-0, in the first meeting of the two teams.

The Lady Cougars took a 2-0 halftime lead against Chartiers-Houston (6-6, 3-4) and were never in trouble.

Halee Fedrick scored twice while Adrianna Authouse, Rachel Ritzer, and Kyra Watkins also added goals.

S. Allegheny 11,Monessen 0

The Lady Greyhounds (0-8, 0-7) fell to the Section 2 A leaders in the lopsided contest.

Monessen, which has been outscored 75-1 on the season, hosts third-place Bentworth in a section match today.

BV Area 3,T. Jefferson 0

Playing its third Section 4 AA match in as many days, the Lady Leps (8-2, 6-1) downed a very game TJ squad in a game that was scoreless at the half.

“TJ really came to play tonight,” BVA coach Paul Sasko said. “(Goalkeeper) Ashly (Gagliardi) had several great saves early to keep them off the board.

“But our girls came out in the second half and gave a great effort.”

Gagliardi recorded six saves while Hayden Pascoe, Sarah McCullough, and Caitlin Caldwell scored for the Lady Leps.

Serra 2,Bentworth 1

The Lady Bearcats (5-5, 4-3) suffered a Section 2 A loss and their hold on third place is down to one game because of it.

Bentworth is at Monessen today in a section match.

Elizabeth Forward 1,Yough 0

EF (7-3-1) downed Yough (6-3) in an exhibition match.

Ali Pastore scored the lone goal in the first half on a breakaway.

Teammate Jen Keefer earned the shutout in goal.

Yough hosts Derry in a Section 1 AA match tonight while EF returns to Section 4 AA play Saturday when it heads to TJ.
