In the WPIAL Girls Class 1A semifinal round, No. 1 seed Riverview, ended No. 12 South Allegheny’s run, winning 5-1, as it was an impressive scoring display by the WPIAL’s leading scorer, Lola Abraham, who netted all five goals for the Raiders.
Abraham’s scoring spree through the playoffs now totals 12 goals, scoring all but one of the Raiders goals through the first three rounds.
The defending champs, Freedom, won the 2022 WPIAL Final rematch, beating Springdale, 3-2, but they had to rally with three goals in the second half, after trailing 2-0 at the half.
This will be Riverview’s first ever trip to Highmark Stadium for the WPIAL Final, while Freedom has won three titles since 2016.
They will play on Friday, at 6 p.m.
