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…
In addition, Riverview girls did the same.
Went 1-1 on the day, losing to Greensburg Central Catholic 13-6 and beat Jeannette 11-0.
As a result, they finish 5-7 in Class 1A Section 1, tied w/ Serra Catholic for 4th place (and final playoff spot in section).#WPIALSoccer
