Soccer Section 2-AAAA showdowns
The boys hit the pitch Tuesday with plenty of key matches in the final week of the regular season.
Two of those matches will occur in Section 3-AA.
Charleroi has run away with the section title with a perfect 11-0 record. However, the next four teams are separated only by a half-game.
Waynesburg Central (6-4) visits Beth-Center (6-4-1) while Brownsville (5-4-1) hosts Southmoreland (6-4). Waynesburg Central and Southmoreland can clinch with a win. This is Beth-Center’s final section match.
There are two weeks left in the regular season in WPIAL girls volleyball and Tuesday will be a busy night on the hardcourt.
First place is at stake in a pair of Class AAAA sections.
In Section 2-AAAA, Baldwin visits Canon-McMillan. Both the Highlanders and Big Macs are even at the top with 9-1 section records. Baldwin beat Canon-McMillan in a five game thriller, 3-2 in their first meeting of the season.
In Section 3-AAAA, Norwin (7-1) travels to Hempfield (7-2) where the Knights hold a half-game lead over the Spartans. Norwin won the first match last month, 3-0.
