The WPIAL Girls soccer playoffs jump back into action on Wednesday, with the Class 3A and 2A semifinal round.
All games kickoff at 6:30 p.m. Here’s a closer look at each match.
Mars is loaded with talent, Ellie Coffield (Pitt), Gracie Dunaway (Purdue), Corline Wrobleski, Leana Cuzzocera and keeper Courtney Lisman and a cast of others.
They are one win away from the right to defend their WPIAL title. A stretch that has seen them go 37 games without a loss. Everyone loves the Cinderella story and based on the seeding Montour is Cinderella. Despite the seeding Montour is also a section foe and dropped their two matches against Mars this season (7-1 and 10-1).
Montour though has not blinked, in its first-round playoff encounter with fourth seeded Connellsville, who did not give up a goal the entire season, they rolled to a 4-1 win. Then they took down Franklin Regional 1-0.
Is the clock getting closer to midnight for Cinderella or… Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo there is some more magic in those shoes?
WPIAL Semifinal Playoff game TONIGHT against Montour!

Yough will challenge that possession. The Cougars coming off the upset win over top-seeded South Park, seem to be building momentum as the playoffs continue. This is a team with speed that will test Avonworth.
This should be a very entertaining game .
Shady Side Academy got a late start to the season but once they got started, it was business as usual for the former Class 1A powerhouse.
Shady Side who has kept a clean sheet throughout these playoffs, will call on Emory Anderson, Gabby Hill-Junke and Melissa Riggins (Georgetown) to keep the ball away from a North Catholic team that can score.
North Catholic led by Jayden Sharpless (Georgia State) whose game winner clinched the Trojans WPIAL Championship last year, will look to hand Shady Side their first loss and get back to a second straight final. Sharpless will look for help from GK Andre Bean, Grace Billman and Lindsay Pawlawski
