Soccer section crown at stake
Another standout match on Wednesday in district girls soccer will decide a section championship in Class A.
Chartiers-Houston (8-1) visits Bentworth (9-0).
If the Bearcats win, they will close in on an outright section championship. If the visiting Bucs are victorious, the stage could be set for co-champions.
Bentworth won the earlier meeting between the two, 4-0.
Past vs. present in AA volleyball
Two of the top four teams in Section 2-AA collide in a battle of past champions.
North Catholic is in first place and the defending Class AA champion.
The Trojans visit Hopewell on Wednesday where the Vikings are fighting Avonworth and South Park for playoff positioning.
