WPIAL Playoffs: Boys First Round Kicks Off Monday

Now that the Girls have played their first round of WPIAL Soccer playoffs, tonight will provide the first round of Boys games.
Two teams that will have quick turnarounds will be Quaker Valley and Freeport, who won play in games in Class AA on Saturday, and will have to take on the two top teams in that classification, South Park and Mars.
Here are a few playoff previews from Pittsburgh Tribune-Review staff…
