Girls Soccer: Mars caps fifth consecutive unbeaten section slate

Written by Nicholas Tolomeo on .

Mars made it a perfect five for five seasons in Class AA this season by capping yet another perfect section slate. The second-ranked Planets (14-3, 12-0) knocked off section rival Knoch (11-6, 8-4), another postseason bound team, 3-1 in the section finale for both teams. The win ensured the Planets of another unbeaten section record, extended their section unbeaten streak to a WPIAL-best 73 games and staked a claim for a top seed in the WPIAL Class AA playoff field. The team's leading goal scorer Sabrina Edwards scored against Knoch as did Tori Kopchak and Judy Kahn. Goalkeeper Sammy Papik was in net for the Planets.

Boys Soccer: Mars two games away from section perfection

Written by Nicholas Tolomeo on .

Mars is two section games and three overall games away from a perfect record. The Planets, who are 15-0 overall and 12-0 in Section 2-AA, can complete a perfect section season with wins on Tuesday and Thursday at Freeport and Knoch. But it will not be easy, both games are on the road and against the two teams who gave Mars some of its toughest games this season. Mars edged both Freeport and Knoch, 1-0, in the span of three days back in September. If Mars wins both of those games, the Planets will have an even harder test for a perfect regular season when they host Class AAA Pine-Richland on Oct. 13. Three wins in those three games and Mars will stake a solid claim for the No. 1 overall seed in WPIAL Class AA over South Park (15-0, 11-0) and Ambridge (14-1, 11-0).
