Locally, Class A soccer has been strong with Riverside winning a recent title and Our Lady of the Sacred Heart and Beaver County Christian School both reaching the WPIAL finals.
This year, despite have two teams seeded in the top eight, the Class A playoffs are over for local teams – and the only playoff win came from the lowest seed – 11th seeded OLSH.
Fourth-seeded Carlynton fell to Geibel Catholic in a shootout in the opening round and seventh-seeded Freedom fell to Riverview, 3-1. OLSH got past Seton-LaSalle, 1-0, in the first round but fell to third seeded Vincentian, 3-0, in the quarterfinal round.
In Class AA, only defending champ West Allegheny remains, as South Fayette eliminated two local teams. In the first round, Central Valley fell to the Lions, 2-0, and in the second round, South Fayette edged Ambridge, 2-1. Ambridge had beaten Indiana, 4-1, in the first round. The other local playoff team, Beaver, was eliminated in the preliminary round by Quaker Valley, 2-1.
