Moriah Wigley's next goal will give her 10 on the season. It will also ensure that she finishes her high school career having scored double-digit goals in all four seasons. Wigley started the season hot with a four-goal performance in a 5-1 win against Charleroi and added one the next day to give her five in the season-opening Avonworth tournament. Wigley's career best was 25 goals last season as a junior. Wigley used to play basketball and run track before dedicating herself to soccer after her freshman year. Wigley and the Quakers are currently in playoff position with a 6-4 overall record and a 4-4 record in Section 3-AA, that is good enough for third place.

It could not have been an easy ride home from Shady Side Academyon Monday for Farrah and Zoe Bojalad.
Not only had the sisters lost in the WPIAL Class AA singles semifinals, they knew they would have to play each other for a berth in the state finals.
Instead of doing what Greensburg Central Catholic sisters Alyvia and Michaela Kluska did in 2013 and 2014 – deciding on the outcome of the match before they came to the court and having one default to the other after a few points – the two played it out.
