WPIAL Girls Soccer Class 4A Standings and Playoff Seeding Projections

WPIAL Girls Soccer Class 4A Standings and Playoff Seeding Projections

The final couple match days of the WPIAL boys and girls soccer regular season will be played on Monday and Tuesday, but with a few exceptions, most of the playoff spots have been cliniched as we head toward Wednesday’s playoff bracket selections.

In addition, please be aware that the WPIAL has once again determined that the teams with the highest seeding will be hosting playoff matches through the first two rounds, and it’s still uncertain if they will also host semifinal round matches at the highest seed.

The WPIAL Finals are scheduled to be played at Highmark Stadium, on Friday and Saturday, November 6 and 7. However, if the Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC clinch a home playoff spot, and likely will play on November 7, some of the WPIAL Championships’ schedule could be reshuffled slightly.

Here’s a look at Class 4A standings along with a Section-By-Section breakdown of the teams that are in the playoffs and our projections for seedings.

CLASS 4A

Across the classification, most playoff spots are clinched, but we’ll be keeping an eye on Pine-Richland on Monday to see if they can force a play-in game for the 12th and final spot.

Here’s a look at where they stand in each section and below a predicted look at the potential playoff seedings.

Section 1

IN: North Allegheny, Butler, Seneca Valley, North Hills

Pine-Richland needs to beat Shaler on Monday to tie North Hills and qualify for playoff spot.

Record
North Allegheny 8-0-1 14-0-1
Butler 6-1-2 12-1-2
Seneca Valley 7-2-1 12-3-2
North Hills 3-7-0 6-10-0
Pine-Richland 2-7-0 4-9-0
Shaler 0-9-0 3-12-0
Section 2

IN: Moon, Peters Twp, Bethel Park, Mt. Lebanon

Team Conf.

Overall
Record
Moon 10-1-1 13-1-1
Peters Township 7-2-3 9-3-3
Bethel Park 6-5-1 9-5-1
Mt. Lebanon 6-5-1 9-5-2
Upper St. Clair 5-5-2 7-7-2
Canon-McMillan 4-8-0 9-8-0
Baldwin 0-12-0 1-16-0

Head coach Bill Pfeiffer’s return to Moon has been a successful one so far, as the Tigers have taken the top spot in a section that has produced a few PIAA champions in recent years.

Section 3

IN:  Latrobe, Norwin, Fox Chapel, Penn-Trafford

Team Conf.
Record
Overall
Record
Latrobe 9-0-1 12-0-1
Norwin 8-2-0 11-3-0
Fox Chapel 6-3-1 8-6-1
Penn-Trafford 4-6-0 6-9-0
Allderdice 2-8-0 6-10-0
Hempfield 0-10-0 0-16-0

No real surprises of which teams have made the playoffs, but maybe some in the order of finish.  It’s been an impressive campaign for Latrobe, who knocked off the periennial front-runners, Norwin, in this section. The question is, how good and how far can Latrobe go in the playoffs?
