The full scoreboard from Saturday is below along playoff berths cliniched and some Tweets of note.


Ed’s here, Ed there, Ed’s everywhere!

Yikes, that’s not good…

Good battle between last year’s 2A girls champs and South Park!  Waynesburg’s nine-game winning streak came to a halt on Saturday.

Congrats to McGuffey girls. Nine straight seasons in the playoffs is an impressive feat.

In addition, of note, Shady Side Academy won the second match of the season between two top teams in Girls 1A — 4-0 over section rivals Greensburg Central Catholic.

In the latest chapter of what’s been one of the top rivalries in WPIAL girls soccer, Class A No. 3 Shady Side Academy held the top-ranked Centurions to one shot on goal and Sophia McMahon scored twice in a 4-0 victory in a Section 1 match at Michael J. Farrell Stadium.

From start to finish the Indians dominated possession, and in the second half they allowed only one shot, which was wide by Ashley McWilliams in the 45th minute. Shady Side Academy (6-1, 5-1) earned a split in the season series for the second consecutive year.

Greensburg Central Catholic (5-2, 5-1) won the first meeting 4-3 on Sept. 12.

“We have really been working on tight marking with our defense,”  Mary Lynch told Pittsburgh Tribune-Review on Tuesday. “We got a slow start to our season with several cancellations, and I really think our defense is coming into their own now that we have some games under our belt. Our midfielders did a good job marking in the middle and having a defender push up to help with that marking.

Here are the teams that have qualified for the girls soccer playoffs through Oct. 7.

Class 4A

Seneca Valley


North Allegheny




Class 3A


Belle Vernon

Greensburg Salem

Oakland Catholic



Thomas Jefferson


West Allegheny


Class 2A
