Ringgold shut out host McKeesport, 5-0, in a Section 4 AAA boys' soccer contest Thursday night.
The win kept the Rams (10-3-1, 5-2-1) in the thick of the playoff chase in the section behind Bethel Park and Mt. Lebanon.
Jeremy Perez scored two goals, giving him 21 for the season, and teammate Nick Fowkes also added two for Ringgold. Ryan Colagiovanni also scored.
James Snyder picked up the shutout in goal.
“I thought we played a much better game in the second half,” said Ringgold coach Frank Perez. “McKeesport pretty much likes to pack it in and we didn't show much patience in the first half. But we talked about it at halftime and made some adjustments.
“In the second half, I though we did a lot better job controlling the ball and moving it around. We grew a little tonight from this game.”
