Moss steals spotlight in win

Add Charleroi coach Dan Haywood’s name to the bandwagon of McGuffey senior goalkeeper Liz Moss.

Moss, a four-year starter and one of the premier goalies in WPIAL’s Class AA, stole the spotlight in the Lady Highlanders’ 1-0 win over the Lady Cougars in a key Class AA Sec. 2 contest Wednesday.

Moss turned back 29 shots en route to her 22nd career shutout.

“She (Moss) put on one of the best performances I’ve ever seen,” raved Haywood. “She was magnificent. We dominated the last 69 minutes, but just couldn’t get the ball past her.”

Jill Workman scored the game’s lone goal at the 11 minute mark for second-place McGuffey (8-1-2, 6-1-2).

“I couldn’t ask for a better game from our defense,” added Haywood,singling out Kim Marsich, Rebecca Stottlemyer, Kim Marsich and Kristen Muncie.

The loss dropped the Lady Cougars (4-4-1, 4-2-1) to fourth place and put Charleroi in a must-win situation for Satyrday’s home game with front-running Chartiers-Houston.

“We’re going to need help to make the playoffs,” added Haywood.

Chartiers-Houston stayed on top with a 2-0 win over Canevin while Vincentian routed Sacred Heart, 8-0, to move into third place.

Yough winner

In Class AAA’s Sec. 6, Yough climbed into a tie for third place with Belle Vernon Area with a 4-1 victory over Connellsville.

Lindsay Proctor and Emily Casara both had two goals for the Lady Cougars (6-4, 5-3) with Christy Boyd and Linsley Fry getting assists.

Salena Morgan was in goal with Megan Sutton standing out defensively.

Yough plays at 4 p.m. today at Geibel.
