What to watch for in WPIAL sports for Aug. 29, 2023: Boys soccer section play commences
Monday, August 28, 2023 | 11:17 PM
On Monday, it was the girls’ turn to open up section play on a new soccer season. Now on Tuesday, the boys hit the pitch for section openers.
All four 2022 WPIAL boys soccer champions are in action Tuesday.
More success on the pitch?
There are five WPIAL boys soccer matches Tuesday pitting teams that at least reached the second round of the district postseason last fall.
Finally, Sewickley Academy visits Eden Christian Academy. A year ago, the teams reached the Class A final four with both teams coming up short of the title match. The Panthers lost to eventual champion Winchester Thurston while the Warriors fell to Charleroi.
Swinging for first
While the high school football and soccer season are just underway, the district golf season is nearing the midway point of section matches.
The Indians have won the district team title in two of the last three years, while the Panthers brought home gold in 2019.
