'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.

Motivated by opening-round playoff losses in each of the past three seasons, the Fox Chapel girls soccer team reversed its fortunes Saturday and advanced to the quarterfinals.

The fourth-seeded Lady Foxes blanked No. 13 Mt. Lebanon, 2-0, in a WPIAL Class AAA first-round game at James Burke Stadium.

It was the team's 13th shutout of the season.

Taylor Cohen and Deena Debaldo scored for Fox Chapel, off assists from Lauren Kelly and Theresa Scheiffarth.

“The key for today was that we all worked together as a team to connect our passes and all put in our best effort,” Cohen said. “It's an amazing feeling to move on after how well we have played this whole season.”

Goalkeeper Vanessa Blazer played all 80 minutes and earned the shutout.

Fox Chapel (17-1-1) advances to play Upper St. Clair (10-5-2) on Wednesday.

Springdale 2, Charleroi 0 — Casey Hughes and Emma Whelan each scored goals to lift No. 8 Springdale (12-6-0) to a Class A first-round win at Belle Vernon.

Springdale advances to play the winner of No. 1 Greensburg Central Catholic (14-1-0) and Mohawk (10-9-0) in Wednesday's quarterfinals.

Bethel Park 1, Plum 0 — Tatiana Ruzzini scored the lone goal with 12 minutes left in the first half to lead No. 6 Bethel Park (16-2-1) past No. 11 Plum (14-4) in a Class AAA first-round game.

Bethel Park will play Gateway (10-7-1) on Wednesday.

Central Valley 9, Freeport 1 — Freshman Carolina Lucci netted six goals as No. 2 Central Valley (16-0-0) topped No. 15 Freeport (10-8-1) in a Class AA first-round game.

Goalkeeper Lauren Hamilton made five saves in the win.

Megan Manke had Freeport's goal and goalie Raine Carney made 14 saves.
