The WPIAL high school girls playoffs kick off on Saturday with a handful of 1st round games in all four classifications.

Be sure to check back here throughout the day for updates on various games.

Pittsburgh Soccer Now‘s newest contributor Ed Rosensteel will be at Ambridge, where he will be providing updates/reports from doubleheader there with Eden Christian vs Freedom (1A), then Thomas Jefferson vs Ambridge (3A).


Ed wanted to make sure he got these on the record, so here are some of his potential upsets to look for in the first round:

4A – Girls

Butler over Penn Trafford (at North Allegheny)

Butler could come down to surprise defending WPIAL Champions Penn Trafford. Butler has shown they can score, even in losses. Butler plays in a tough section, while Norwin is in a top-heavy section with Norwin. PT will have to be solid on their back line and limit the number of quality shots on goal. Kylie Dugan will need to control the game in the midfield and dictate the attack.

3A – Girls

South Fayette over Belle Vernon (at Belle Vernon)

Belle Vernon will hope to avoid another first round playoff loss when they lost to Ambridge 6-1. Belle Vernon have Izzy Lurita, but they can’t rely on her alone.  South Fayette has a lot of speed, and this could definitely be a game of match-ups. Section 4 may not get its due, but Belle Vernon may have a weaker run of competition in Section 3. One common opponent for both sides as 2A Waynesburg, who beat BVA 2-0, but lost to South Fayette in a shootout, 4-3.

2A – Girls

Yough over Burrell (at Kiski Area)

Yough’s section is loaded with quality players at the club levelwho will be recuited by Division I and II schools. Burrell comes in having won 10 of last 12 games,

1A – Girls

Springdale over Chartiers-Houston (at North Allegheny)

Springdale will travel with their legion of fans up the road to North Allegheny. Jerry Concannon will have his team ready as they enter the Class 1A playoffs for the first time in two years after a stint in 2A. Chartiers-Houston has won six of its final seven games. They boast a 3-1 win vs Shady Side Academy, while also losing to Greensburg Central Catholic, 1-0.
