Two-time defending PIFA girls champion Shady Side Academy improved to 3-0 with a 6-3 victory over Fox Chapel (0-1).

The Allderdice girls also remained unbeaten as they topped North Allegheny (0-3) by a 7-2 result.

North Allegheny won its first match of the season and improved to 1-3 with a 6-3 victory over previously undefeated and defending league champion Allderdice (3-1).

Allderdice rebounded from the North Allegheny loss and scored a 6-3 win over Winchester Thurston (3-2), while Winchester recorded a 6-3 triumph over North Allegheny.

Other matches in the boys division saw Fox Chapel (1-1) split its season-opening efforts, beating Seton LaSalle (0-4) by a score of 8-1, and dropping a close result to Shady Side Academy (3-1), 5-4.
