What to watch for in WPIAL sports for Sept. 19, 2023: Battle of unbeatens set between North Allegheny, Seneca Valley
Monday, September 18, 2023 | 4:34 PM
The only undefeated teams left in WPIAL Class 4A boys soccer this season are the Raiders and the Tigers.
The two district juggernauts prepare to battle for the first time this fall Tuesday at NA.
North Allegheny won back-to-back district Class 4A crowns in 2016 and 2017 while the Raiders were repeat gold winners in 2020 and 2021.
Both teams are 6-0 in Section 1-4A this year and are perfect overall.
North Allegheny is 9-0 and has outscored opponents 32-7 with three shutouts. Seneca Valley is 8-0 this season, has a 37-6 combined scoring edge on its foes and has registered four shutouts.
The match is at 7:30 p.m. and can be heard on Trib HSSN.
Two for one on the pitch
While a lot of attention will be centered on the Section 1-4A battle of the unbeatens, first place in Section 2-4A is also up for grabs Tuesday.
The first meeting between these two section foes is at USC.
Another showdown for first place in boys soccer takes place in Section 3-3A.
The Rams won their first seven games of the season before falling to Thomas Jefferson last week.
Since losing their opener, the Black Hawks have won seven matches in a row.
Three for one on the court
Tuesday will be another busy day of section action in WPIAL girls volleyball, with three contests matching section undefeated teams clashing for first place.
In Section 3-3A, Laurel Highlands visits Thomas Jefferson. Both the Mustangs and Jaguars are 4-0 with a two-game lead over their next three closest section foes.
