WPIAL Boys Class 2A Soccer Playoff Bracket: Quaker Valley, South Park back in a big way

Click here to find the WPIAL Class 2A Boys Soccer bracket for the 2021 playoff tournament. 

A year ago, Deer Lakes finally had their moment in capturing the Class 3A title, but this season, two mainstay programs in this classification have found their way back into favored status: Quaker Valley and South Park.  Quaker Valley didn’t have much trouble with competition in its section, but did post some impressive non-section wins — and losses — as their only two losses came to Class 4A Peters Twp (3-2) and Class 3A powerhouse West Allegheny.

  1. South Park
  2. Quaker Valley
  3. Shady Side Academy
  4. Charleroi
