Football: Playoff fields taking shape in revised WPIAL postseason structure

Written by Mike White on .

Mike White takes a look at the WPIAL playoff picture entering the final week of the regular season.

"The six-classification system changed WPIAL football this season and changed the league's playoff system. But the total number of teams entering the postseason is the same as it has been since 1998.

The WPIAL will still take 64 teams to the playoffs, and 53 spots have been filled entering the final weekend of the season.

Class 6A, 5A and 4A have two conferences each and the top four teams from each conference qualify for a total of eight teams. Class 3A has three conferences, and eight teams will qualify. The top two teams in each conference qualify, plus two wild-card third-place teams.

Class 2A and 1A will have 16 teams in the playoffs. The top five teams in each conference qualify, plus one wild-card sixth-place team."

No. 14 seed South Fayette stuns Oakland Catholic

Oakland Catholic learned the hard way that it isn't how you start, but how you finish.

The No. 3-seeded Eagles (15-3-1) lost three of their final five games, including their WPIAL Class 3A playoff opener to No. 14 South Fayette, 2-0.

Both of the Lions' goals were scored in the second half by juniors Brenna McGuire and Lexie Keeling.

The Lions (10-7-2) were able to shut down the Eagles stop goal scorer, senior Essence Canady, who finished the season with 28 goals. This was the first match this season Oakland Catholic was shut out.
