WPIAL Boys Soccer Final Dates and Times are set

It’s official!  The WPIAL boys soccer finals to be played this coming weekend at Highmark Stadium have been set.

Here are the dates/times of the boys games:

The girls matches are yet to be determined, but will be announced on Tuesday morning after the semifinals have been played on Monday night.

With the Riverhounds SC hosting the USL Championship Eastern Conference Semifinal playoff match on Saturday  — scheduled for 7 p.m. kickoff, along with the announcement of the boys schedule that includes one match on Saturday (West A vs Franklin Regional at 2 p.m.), there will be spots open for matches on Thursday night (6 p.m. time slot), potentially Friday late afternoon (3:45 p.m. time slot), and Saturday morning and early afternoon.

It appears that the additional Saturday morning time slots will now likely be moved to 9 or 9:30 a.m. for the first game, and and 11:30/11:45 a.m. for the second game.  The 2 p.m. time slot will likely have to be the latest the WPIAL can play due to needing to have Highmark Stadium ready and prepared for the 7 p.m. USL match.
