Baldwin Breaks Spell, Defeats Bethel Park Highlanders near AAA Section Crown

Article excerpt

The Baldwin girls soccer team ended its lengthy run of heartbreak Wednesday against Bethel Park, and it has the Highlanders on the cusp of a section title.

Carly Baumann scored off of Kelsie Balsam's free kick with 10 minutes left in the first half and Baldwin held on to win at Bethel Park, 1-0, in a key Class AAA Section 4 game.

Baldwin (11-2-2, 9-0-2) moved ahead of third-ranked Bethel Park (12-2-2, 8-1-1) into first place. The Highlanders can clinch the section title with a win Tuesday at Ringgold.

Baldwin had gone 0-11-2 in its past 13 games against Bethel Park and had not beaten the Black Hawks since 2006.

Bethel Park had not allowed a goal in its previous eight games.
