The regular season has just about all but wrapped up on Tuesday — for the most part — for WPIAL girls soccer, with a number of section matches deciding some final playoff spots and seeding.

A few crazy things happened, including this…

and this…

The Knoch-Apollo-Ridge contest will be the lone section game remaining in the WPIAL to be played on Wednesday, after the Playoff Pairings are revealed.  If Knoch (9-1-1) wins the match, they’ll be crowned Class 2A, Section 2 Champs, ahead of Freeport (10-2-0).

Remember, the original schedules sometimes change and we may not receive every update. You can share updates to the schedule including scores/updates/photos and videos both on Twitter using #WPIALSoccer or tagging @pghsoccernow or by messaging us via email or DM.

Thanks for all of your support this season!

We are looking forward to the postseason and sharing the brackets for the WPIAL playoffs on Wednesday, along with lots of content.  Look for more to come!

PSN Promotes Mental Health Awareness

Section 2 (2A)
