It wasn't officially Senior Night for Belle Vernon Area's girls' soccer team Tuesday night at Jim Weir Stadium, but it very well could have been Hayden Pascoe Night.
Pascoe, the Lady Leps' leading scorer, tallied four goals in BVA's 6-0 Section 4 AA win over West Mifflin.
Pascoe's second goal which came with about three minutes left in the first half, was the 100th of her career. She now has 102 for her career and 28 for the season.
She is third on the all-time girls' scoring list behind Cori Stark (124) and Michelle Sillence (106).
“It was a nice night for her. It was a nice night for our seniors,” said BVA coach Paul Sasko.
Sasko started all of the team's seniors as BVA (13-4-1, 9-2-1) snapped a two-game losing streak.
“It was actually our Senior Night because this was a make-up game, but that's how we treated it,” said Sasko.
Marissa Zettry and Sierra Lynn also scored goals for BVA while Kaity Watson picked up the shutout in goal.
“This was our sixth game in nine days, so we started a little tired, but we made it through OK,” Sasko said.
The Lady Leps, who have made the WPIAL playoffs in all nine of Sasko's season, will now await the release of the WPIAL playoff pairings today.
“I think we will be seeded somewhere around sixth or seventh,” said Sasko. “That's pretty much what I expect.”
Baldwin 6, Ringgold 0
The Lady Rams (4-11-1, 4-8) closed the Section 4 AAA season on a losing note as Baldwin (12-3-2, 10-0-2) finished as section champs.
Ringgold trailed the contest 3-0 at halftime.
Ringgold will try to snap a six-game winless streak today when the Lady Rams close the season with a non-section game at home against Bentworth. The contest starts at 7 p.m.
Keystone Oaks 8, Monessen 1
The Lady Greyhounds (0-18) closed out a winless season with the non-section loss to KO (6-12), which snapped a six-game losing skid with the victory.
However, Monessen did manage its second goal of the season, which was scored by Tally DeWitt.
