Soccer roundup: Cougars blast South Fayette

| Thursday, Sept. 20, 2001

Charleroi High's girls soccer team was missing one of its key players Wednesday at South Fayette.

It didn't turn out to be costly.

With junior forward-midfielder Tara Stottlemyer sidelined from a knee injury suffered in the final minutes of Tuesday's practice, the Lady Cougars upped their Class AA Sec. 2 record to 6-0 with a 6-0 triumph at South Fayette.

'We moved the ball well and played good defense,' said Charleroi coach Dan Haywood.

Most of the contest was played in a heavy rain.

Senior Brooke Rebar, the team's leading scorer, was moved to center midfield.

'Brooke probably played her best game tonight,' said Haywood. 'She seemed more comfortable there. She could use her knowledge back there and it took pressure off her.'

Rebar responded with a goal and assist.

Freshman Katie Powell scored two goals in Rebar's spot.

Heather Carson, Jackie Deutsch and Rebecca Stottlemyer had the other goals for Charleroi, which led 4-0 at halftime.

Carson had two assists with Katie Baker adding one.

Junior goalie Brittany Endreszl recorded her sixth shutout.

Haywood singled out the play of Ashley Brandt and Amanda Reinhard.

Tara Stottlemyer, meanwhile, is scheduled to have a MRI on her knee Friday.

Charleroi (6-3) resumes Saturday at 1 p.m. against Belle Vernon Area at Charleroi Stadium in the first game of a girl-boy doubleheader between the two schools.

Second-place Chartiers Houston routed Carlynton, 9-0, behind Chasity Liberatore's five goals and Canevin topped Our Lady of Sacred Heart, 4-2, in the other Sec. 2 games.

Ringgold rolls

In Class AAA's Sec. 6, Ringgold kept rolling with a 6-2 victory at Laurel Highlands.

After a scoreless first half, the Lady Rams' Jen Pergola erupted for four goals to raise her career total to 89.

Stephanie Kuhn had a goal and three assists with Olivia Wilkerson scoring the other goal with an assist.

Ringgold coach Dave Molisee cited Beverly Rogers, Tricia Cerar, Lauren Robinson, Beth Cassidy and Dana Gump.

Cerar was playing in place of four-year starter Adri Cox, who missed the game due to a death in the family.

Janelle Zinn had both goals for the Lady Mustangs (6-2, 3-2).

The Lady Rams (7-2, 6-0) go to Canon-McMillan Saturday for a 6 p.m. exhibition game.

BVA in 1-1 tie

Belle Vernon Area had to settle for a frustrating 1-1 tie at Albert Gallatin with Elizabeth Forward blanking Uniontown, 3-0, in the other Sec. 6 games.

The Lady Leps (4-4-1, 2-2-1) were 58 seconds away from a 1-0 win when Albert Gallatin's Angela Allison knotted the score with a direct kick to force overtime.

Jessica Boyd scored on an unassisted goal for BVA.

BVA coach John McKivitz singled out Meghan Flook, Erica Argento and Maggie Monahan.

Monessen ahead

In Class AA's Sec. 1, Monessen posted a 3-0 decision over Carmichaels.

Kellie Kifus had a pair of goals for the Lady Greyhounds (3-4-1, 3-2-1).

Marie Billy tallied the other Monessen goal with Monica Bass and Natalie DeiCas each getting an assist.

Jennifer Hostovich recorded her second shutout for Monessen, which outshot Carmichaels, 20-4.

Monessen visits Chartiers-Houston Saturday at 5:30 p.m.

In other Sec. 1 games, Greensburg Central Catholic blanked Geibel, 5-0; Waynesburg topped Yough, 2-0 and Jeannette beat Southmoreland, 4-1.
