Girls Soccer: Moon stays perfect but it was not easy

Written by Nicholas Tolomeo on .

The first Moon/Montour regular-season clash lived up to its hype. The No. 1 vs. No. 2 clash of the unbeaten produced its share of fireworks, drama and heartbreak. The top-ranked Tigers rallied from a 1-0 deficit to topple the second-ranked Spartans, 2-1, on Wednesday night in a Class 3A Section 4 showdown. Both teams entered the game unbeaten knowing a winner would emerge from the game as a likely favorite, not just in the section, but in the classification.

Montour struck first with a goal in the final minute of the first half. But the late goal did not translate into second-half momentum. Moon came out and scored two goals in the first 12 minutes of the second half to take a lead it would not relinquish. The goal scorers for Moon were Kristi Kania with the equalizer and Kylee Evans with the game winner.

The decision vaulted Moon (8-0, 6-0) to a 1 1/2 game lead over Montour (6-1-1, 4-1-1) in the section. Montour is now clinging onto second place just ahead of Central Valley (4-2, 4-2) and South Fayette (5-3, 3-3).
