Monessen snaps skid with shutout

| Thursday, Jan. 8, 2015, 12:01 a.m.

Luke Beveridge scored five goals to pace Monessen as it ended its two-game winless streak Saturday with an 8-0 Section 4 A shutout at home over Washington.

“We played much better and we were able to play everyone,” Monessen coach Sam Perry said. “This was a good win giving us some momentum going into next week.”

Cory Fleming, Tyler Caterino, and Justice Rice each added a goal while Rice and Fleming shared the shutout in goal.

Monessen (9-1-1, 7-1-1) is at Charleroi Tuesday night for a key section match.

B'worth 6, Charleroi 1

Down two starters, the Cougars (6-6-1, 4-4) dropped the Section 4 A decision at Bentworth.

“We lost two starters from the last game and we just did not step up to fill the holes in the lineup,” Charleroi coach Ron Hostovich said.

Blake Carmello scored Charleroi's lone goal.

S. Park 3, EF 0

Elizabeth Forward (5-8, 3-6) dropped a misleading Section 3 AA match to undefeated South Park.

The match was scoreless until the 59th minute when South Park finally got on the board, and then they added two more late goals to secure the win.

“Our defense stood out in this game,” EF coach Dave King said. “South Park is as good as advertised and even better.”

BV Area 1, W. Mifflin 1

For the second time this season, Belle Vernon Area and West Mifflin played to a tie in Section 3 AA play.

Tyler Chiste gave the Leps (6-3-2, 4-2-2) a 1-0 lead and it seemed that the one goal would stand up, but West Mifflin tied the match with 57 seconds to go in regulation to tie the match 1-1.

“We played really well and had some chances in overtime,” BVA coach John Kerekes said. “We always play close games with them.”

BVA is at Canon-McMillan for a non-section match tonight.

Yough 6, EF 0
