South Fayette allows 1st goal

When South Fayette allowed its first goal of the season during a 1-0 loss to Quaker Valley on Saturday, the Lions reacted with little more than a collective shrug.

“We viewed it as a monkey off our backs,” coach Rob Eldridge said. “It would've been nice to walk out with a 1-1 tie or a 2-1 victory, but, honestly, we didn't want to take that clean sheet into the (WPIAL) tournament.”

South Fayette, which played at Class A No. 1 Seton-La Salle on Monday, won its first 11 games by a combined score of 42-0. The Lions also had a scoreless tie against Class AA No. 1 West Allegheny.

Senior Alex Gedrys, a 2012 All-WPIAL performer, and junior Andrew Pine rotate at goalkeeper.

Seniors Dan Pruss and Evan Yee have carried the South Fayette (11-1-1, 7-1-1) back line, in addition to junior Nick McKee, a central midfielder who shifted back because of a hamstring injury to Travis Revay. Junior forward Brian Coyne leads the offense with 13 goals.

• Brothers Tyler and Aaron Harris lead the McGuffey (10-3, 8-1) offense with 18 goals apiece. Tyler Harris, who shifted into a midfield position this season, has added 11 assists, Aaron eight. “It's a family affair down here,” Highlanders coach Jim Kita said. Junior defender Luke Desmond, a cousin of the Harris brothers, routinely marks the opponent's top player.

• Monday was the deadline for five individuals to submit information on last week's Brashear-at-Canon-McMillan boys soccer forfeit. The WPIAL Executive Committee will review the event Oct. 15. Any action would come, at the earliest, when the Board of Control meets Oct. 21.
