The Upper St. Clair girls soccer team earned a tough section road win tonight by defeating Moon by the score of 2-1. Nikki Gibbons scored the first and only goal in the first half as the Panthers took a 1-0 lead into halftime.
At the 35:14 mark in the second half, the Tigers tied the game making the score 1-1. At the 7:04 mark, Landy Mertz scored the game winner and the Panthers gained their seventh win in a row by the score of 2-1. Outstanding job by goalie Juls Gianni and the entire defense for allowing only a single goal.
The team remains in a tie for first place and play host to section rival Mount Lebanon next Monday night. It also marks senior night for the girls. Come out and support the girls for their last regular season home game.
