Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Softball League teams ready for playoff tournament
Monday, October 17, 2022 | 1:33 PM
Montour, North Allegheny, Bethel Park, Baldwin and Shaler each recorded doubleheader sweeps Sunday as the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Softball League nears the conclusion of its regular season and prepares for its playoff tournament.
Before the playoff brackets can be finalized, there is one more regular-season game to be played.
Baldwin, at 9-4, will face Mt. Lebanon (8-5) on Tuesday evening.
The 13-team bracket is expected to be released Wednesday.
The first round and quarterfinals will be Saturday, with play from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
The semifinal and championship games are set for Sunday, from 4 to 8 p.m.
Mt. Lebanon will be the host for the tournament, set for the turf field on Cedar Boulevard.
A point system was in place throughout the regular-season — two points for a win and one point for a game played – in determining the pairings for the playoffs.
Shaler finished two games clear of the field in the final regular-season standings. The Titans compiled a 13-1 record. Their only loss was to North Allegheny, 4-1, in Week 2 on Sept. 8.
North Allegheny was runner-up at 11-3.
