Girls Soccer: Charleroi marches into WPIAL semifinals

Written by Nicholas Tolomeo on .

A year after getting stopped in the WPIAL quarterfinals, Charleroi is onto the WPIAL Class A semifinals for the first time since the classification was formed in 2010. The No. 2-seeded Cougars (16-1-2) survived a first-round scare against No. 15 Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic, ultimately winning, 2-1. In the quarterfinals the Charleroi attack came alive. Leading scorer Kyra Watkins netted a hat trick as Charleroi out gunned another explosive team in New Brighton, 5-2. Watkins' hat trick gave her 99 career goals. She hopes to reach the century mark Monday in the WPIAL semifinals against No. 3 Shady Side Academy (16-3). The game will be played at 6 p.m. at Chartiers Valley.

Charleroi 2015 Football Preview

Written by Brad Everett on .

Second-year coach Donnie Militzer said the Cougars are ready to do something they haven't accomplished since 2004 — make the playoffs.

A big reason for the optimism is the return of Brock Shannon (5-8, 165, Sr., RB), who Militzer said has the potential to be one of the better running backs in the WPIAL. Shannon (701 yards) led the Cougars in rushing last season and scored a team-high 12 touchdowns.

"He's a really dynamic kid. He's one of the best all-around backs I've had," said Militzer, who was previously a head coach at Gateway.

Charleroi returns seven starters on offense. Among them is Trey Douyon (5-9, 170, Sr., WR), the team's second-leading receiver last season with 26 catches. Matt Carr, who set the school single-season passing record last season, graduated, so two sophomores have fought to replace him — Ryan Workman (6-0, 175) and George Lukach (6-2, 210).
