What to watch for in WPIAL sports for Sept. 18, 2023: Girls soccer South Hills showdown on tap
Sunday, September 17, 2023 | 10:28 PM
There are only 11 WPIAL girls soccer teams that have yet to lose a match this season, and two of them go head-to-head Monday.
Goals will be hard to come by in this South Hills showdown.
This season, the Panthers have been perfect in every way. USC is 5-0 in the section, 7-0 overall and has yet to give up a goal this season thanks to the play of sophomore goalkeeper Camryn Friday. Junior Madison Webb and sophomore Braidyn Recker also have seen time as keeper for Upper St. Clair.
The Indians are 4-0-1 in the section and 6-0-1 overall and have won five straight games since a scoreless tie with Canon-McMillan. Another young goalkeeper, sophomore Molly Kubistek, has led the way as Peters Township has allowed only one goal in its seven contests.
