Abby Churchfield scored on a free kick late in the first half, and Abbey Tarosky added a goal in the final three minutes to give No. 3 Norwin a 2-0 win over rival Penn-Trafford in Section 1-AAA on Wednesday.

Penn-Trafford (12-4, 11-1) won the section title, and Norwin (13-1-2, 10-1-1) finished second thanks to a tie against Franklin Regional (5-8-2, 4-5-2).

“We still have games against Peters Township and North Allegheny, two playoff teams,” Norwin coach Jeff Palm said. “That should set us up for what to expect in the playoffs.”

Latrobe 4, Hempfield 1 — Abby Laduke had two goals as Latrobe (9-6-1, 5-5-1) earned a victory in Section 1-AAA.

Upper St. Clair 2, Chartiers Valley 0 — Emma Hasco scored twice to lead Upper St. Clair (8-5-2, 5-3-2) to a Section 5-AAA win that clinched a playoff berth.

Yough 2, Southmoreland 0 — Yough (13-3-0, 11-1-0) had goals from Shawna Zaken and Natalie Luppold in Section 1-AA.

New Brighton 6, Freedom 1 — Maya Watkins had a hat trick, and Elaina Smith added two goals to lead New Brighton (8-6-1, 8-4-1) to a Section 1-A win.

Quigley Catholic 5, South Side Beaver 1 — Kristen Jackson led Quigley Catholic (4-11-1, 3-10-1) with three goals and an assist in a Section 1-A win.

Bishop Canevin 1, Carlynton 0 — Sam Vanek scored as No. 3 Bishop Canevin (12-2-1, 10-1-0) earned a win in Section 3-A. Caroline Clarke earned her 11th shutout.

Greensburg C.C. 10, Jeannette 0 — Fran Course had a hat trick, and Malea Fabean added two goals to lead No. 1 Greensburg C.C. (13-1-0, 12-0-0) to a win in Section 4-A. Fabean broke the state career assists record with her 110th helper.

Uniontown leaves early

Uniontown boys soccer coach Eric Dolfi pulled his team off the field with about five minutes left in Tuesday night's 11-1 loss at Waynesburg. But unlike Brashear's forfeit at Canon-McMillan Sept. 24, a game that's under review by the WPIAL executive committee, those involved Tuesday appear eager to move on and chalk it up to a chippy game where tempers may have boiled over.

“Uniontown respects Waynesburg,” Dolfi said. “They won a hard-fought game, and we want this to drop and move on with no retaliation.”

Dolfi said he did not plan on filing any grievances with the WPIAL. Same for Waynesburg athletic director Russ Moore.
