The first half of section play concludes in WPIAL girls basketball Monday.

Outright first place will be up for grabs in three games, including a pair in Class A.

In Section 2, 5-0 West Greene will visit 4-0 Avella.

“We still have to twice play a really good Avella team that is well-coached, senior-laden and a PIAA qualifier last season,” West Greene coach Jordan Watson said.

First place in Section 3 is up for grabs as Clairton hosts Greensburg Central Catholic. Both teams are 4-0.

While those four teams are perfect in section play, Gateway hosts Plum for first place in Section 2-5A with both teams at 4-1 in the section.

Plum lost to Mars, and Gateway lost to Armstrong in the first half of section play. The winner takes over sole possession, and the loser falls into a tie for second with 4-2 Armstrong.
