Win and in and section gold in boys soccer

There are a pair of boys soccer games in the WPIAL Monday night, one with section title implications and one with a playoff berth up for grabs.

Highlands visits playoff-bound Hampton. If the Golden Rams win, they clinch a Class AAA postseason berth. A loss puts Indiana into the playoffs. A Highlands-Hampton tie puts both Highlands and Indiana in the playoffs.

In Section 2-A, Greensburg Central Catholic hosts Winchester Thurston. If the Centurions win or tie, they are the outright section champions. If the Bears win, Winchester and GCC are co-section champs.
