Not this year.
Forest Hills overcomes third-seeded Central
Few people gave sixth-seeded Forest Hills much of a chance Saturday night against No. 3 Central in their District 6 Class AA quarterfinal matchup.
That was just fine with the Rangers, who threw for over 200 yards against the Scarlet Dragons and went on to surprise their hosts, 21-7.
Shutout ends Rangers' run
The Forest Hills girls’ soccer team knew it had an uphill battle on Tuesday night.
The Rangers faced a strong opponent in Moon, which previously competed in AAA. Moon’s accurate passing and spacing on offense were on display as they won 3-0 in the first round of state playoff action.
Forest Hills (19-1-1) lost for the first time all year to District 7’s runner-up, which took defending state champion Mars to overtime on Saturday. Forest Hills’ defense held strong early in the first half as Moon’s offense kept the ball in the Rangers’ zone most of the night. Senior goalkeeper Megan Ross (19 saves) made an impressive save on a Moon header in the 10th minute.
Walls, Rangers win District 6-AA soccer

Friday preview: Forest Hills concerned about Bishop Guilfoyle
Bishop Guilfoyle accomplished something not many believed possible during last week’s win against Cambria Heights. The Marauders significantly hampered the Highlanders’ high-powered run game.
Don’t be surprised if Bishop Guilfoyle’s blueprint for defensive success is copied by other members of the Laurel Highlands Athletic Conference when going against Cambria Heights.
Forest Hills girls prove themselves the team to beat
The Forest Hills girls soccer team no longer feels the need to prove itself to anyone, but that doesn’t mean that the Rangers haven’t set some lofty goals for themselves this season.
“This year there is more pressure on the girls and I can see it, especially on the seniors,” said Forest Hills coach Donna Gallaher after her team defeated Penn Cambria 13-0 on Monday to raise it record to 6-0-1.
