It's back to the WPIAL finals for the Fox Chapel field hockey team.

Jenna Alexander's goal Wednesday held up as the reigning-champion and home-standing Foxes advanced to the title match for the fourth time in five seasons with a 1-0 win over Pine-Richland in the semifinals.

“Pine-Richland is a good, well-coached team,” Fox Chapel coach Jen McCrady said. “We just caught them at the right time.”

Fox Chapel (12-4-1) will play at North Allegheny — a 1-0 double-overtime winner over Peters Township — at 8 p.m. Tuesday in the championship game.

Fox Chapel had consecutive corner plays and scored on the third one. Goalie Hannah D'Cunha made five saves for Fox Chapel.
