'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.

The Gateway varsity girls soccer team saw its season come to an end Wednesday evening with a 3-1 loss to Bethel Park in a WPIAL Class AAA quarterfinal game at Elizabeth Forward High School.

It was the second year in a row the Gators' season ended at the hands of the Black Hawks.

Last year, Bethel Park stopped Gateway's run in the WPIAL consolation game.

The Gators, the 2013 playoffs' No. 14 seed, finished their campaign 10-8-1 overall.

Sophomore Kayla Trozzi scored Gateway's lone goal in Wednesday's contest.

She also tallied the first goal in the Gators' upset victory over No. 3 seed North Allegheny in the first round on Saturday.

Trozzi was injured in the North Allegheny game, and there were fears she might not be able to play against Bethel Park.

But in the days following the game with the Tigers, her condition improved to the point where she was able to play.

Bethel Park scored twice in the first half and took a 2-1 lead into the break. The Black Hawks, 17-2-1 overall, scored an insurance goal in the second half and will face No. 2 seed Peters Township in the semifinals on Monday.

Bethel Park senior Tatiana Ruzzini scored two goals for Bethel Park against Gateway. She also had her team's lone goal in a first-round win over Plum.
