The first round results on the boys side saw some exciting games that went into extra time (Allderdice defeated Peters Township in the much talked about game that changed venues due to WPIAL mistake) and two decided on penalties (Ambridge over Greensburg Salem and AA # 2 Mars escapes Quaker Valley).
Two defending WPIAL Champs were eliminated (Peters in AAA, and Winchester Thurston in A).

In Class AAA, all three teams from Section 3 (Fox Chapel, Franklin Regional and Kiski Area) won, with a shocker being Kiski Beating North Allegheny, 2-1.
