The WPIAL Boys and Girls Soccer playoff brackets were released on Wednesday.

Shortly after, PSN’s John Krysinsky and Brandon Rossi shared their reaction and spoke with a pair of coaches, Our Lady of Sacred Heart’s Paige Petroval and Avonworth’s J.C. Mahon, to get their thoughts on the seedings and their teams’ prospects in the upcoming playoffs.
