On we go to the semifinals on Saturday!
10:35 p.m. – Pine-Richland pulls it out — wins 4-3 on PKs to defeat last year’s WPIAL runner up Seneca Valley.
I believe that we now have three of the four teams that were in 4A semifinals a year ago. Seneca was the fourth last year that won’t return.
10:30 p.m. – GOLDEN GOAL …  from Aidan Perez in 102nd minute, assist from Nick Gengarella, Beaver beats Deer Lakes 1-0 in OT.

10:27 p.m. – Canon-Mac pulls it out in PKs. Tommy Samoskt with final penalty kick to beat Franklin Regional, 5-3 in the shootout.
10:24 p.m. – Also in PKs now — Pine-Richland vs Seneca Valley
10:20 p.m. – Canon-Mac and Franklin Regional going to PKs.
10:12 p.m. – with Peters and West A both winning late games, all of the top seeds in each classification have moved on.
10:11 p.m. – Central Valley very excited about moving on to 2A semifinals:

10:02 p.m. – all three OT games going to the second 15 minutes.
9:40 p.m. – some finals coming in now:
Deer Lakes and Beaver going to OT.
West Allegheny 4-1 over Belle Vernon
Montour defeats Knoch, 1-0
4A – Peters Township 4, Butler 1
and another game going to OT (that’s three now)

from earlier…

9:37 p.m. – Canon-McMillan and Franklin Regional end regulation 2-2. Going to overtime.
9:34 p.m. – Canon-McMillan scores with 1:55 remaining with goal by Tommy Samosky to pull even with Franklin Regional 2-2
9:30 p.m.
Seneca Valley’s Luke Rupert’s goal with under 18 to play to draw even with Pine-Richland.
9:15 p.m.
Franklin Regional takes a 2-1 lead on Canon-McMillan. Zach Guidry gets his second, as things gettng chippy.
halftime — Deer Lakes and Beaver Area are in a scoreless tie.
Pine-Richland leads Seneca Valley, 1-0, in a battle of section rivals.
8:01 p.m. – here are some more early scores
Defending 4A champs move on again by 1-0 margin. No easy games in 4A. Both goals in these playoffs by Lehigh commit Josh Lucini

2A – Shady Side 3, Waynesburg 0
7:45 p.m. –  UPSET ALERT!

And for the third consecutive year Greensburg CC goes down in Q-final game at Hampton.
This time to Winchester Thurston, 2-1.
They’re hoping not to return to Hampton next year, right?

7:35 p.m. – two #1 seeds advance…

Quaker Valley 1-0 over.Riverside in 2A; CWNC rolls 4-0 over Bentworth in 1A

1A – #3 Seton LaSalle 1 #11 Riverview 0

6:15 p.m. – wow — Waynesburg sure likes playing in high scoring games — as Shady Side Academy (15 seed who stunned #2 South Park on Saturday) are already up 2-0. Waynesburg outlasted Obama Academy 6-5 on Saturday.

6:03 p.m. – the early games have kicked off. No reports of any delays.
