Girls Soccer: Fox Chapel takes role of section favorite after statement wins

Written by Nicholas Tolomeo on .

Through the first half of the Class AAA Section 3 slate of games there are still many questions but one thing is very evident, Fox Chapel is far and away the section favorite. The Foxes are 8-1 overall and a perfect 5-0 in section play. It is not simply the section record that sets Fox Chapel apart from others, it is how they are getting those wins.

Fox Chapel blasted Allderdice 8, handed Plum its first loss of the season with a 3-1 result and it shutout Woodland Hills 8-0 and Penn Hills 5-0. In the win over Penn Hills, the No. 2-ranked Foxes got a hat trick from Theresa Scheiffarth. The win boosted Fox Chapel's record to 4-0 in section play and then it made its biggest statement with a 4-0 win at Gateway. The win snapped a 17-match section unbeaten streak. Fox Chapel took a 1-0 lead in the first half and after a Gateway red card, the Foxes took advantage and added three more goals while up a player to put the game away.
