Girls Soccer: South Allegheny storms back from four-goal deficit

Written by Nicholas Tolomeo on .

In one of the most improbable postseason comebacks in WPIAL history, South Allegheny overcame a four-goal deficit to rally back, score five unanswered goals and shock Carlynton, 5-4. The seventh-ranked Gladiators (13-6) were staring down a 4-0 deficit against No. 10 Carlynton on Saturday at Montour thanks to three goals from Carlynton's Pam Meighan. But South Allegheny stormed back behind a pair of goals from leading goal-scorer Amber Brownfield. The improbable comeback sets up a WPIAL quarterfinal match between No. 2 Shady Side Academy (15-3) and South Allegheny. The Indians are the defending WPIAL Class A champions.

Girls Soccer: South Allegheny in wild scramble for playoff spot

Written by Nicholas Tolomeo on .

Nicholas Tolomeo profiles the South Allegheny girls soccer team.

"Some incoming freshman classes dwindle -- especially in regard to athletics -- during their four years of high school.

A large crop of freshmen players is often pared somewhat by the time they are seniors.

That is not the case with the South Allegheny girls soccer team.

A freshmen class of six girls four years ago grew to seven sophomores in 2012 and nine juniors in 2013. There are nine seniors on the current roster and as the number in the class has grown, so has the talent, experience and expectations."
