Pittsburgh D1 Quarterfinal Notes

The North reigns supreme.

North Allegheny 5 Peters Township 4

No KVT Productions video but Peters had a 2-1 lead at half, dropped a second half lead, and had a chance to tie the game in the final minute. North Allegheny had beaten Peters 10-7 in a more open game last week which was treated as more of a scrimmage with both teams subbing liberally.

Pine Richland 16 Upper St. Clair 3

Highlights from this game were online last night, but have since been removed. In the regular season meeting, Pine erased a fourth quarter deficit to win 12-11. This postseason tilt wasn’t that close with Pine scoring 13 in a row.

Shady Side 7 Bethel Park 6

Probably much closer than most expected especially considering the return of several key Shady Side pieces from injury. Future is very bright for Bethel with the core of the team being 2018s.

Mt. Lebanon 19 Fox Chapel 6

Mt. Lebanon and Fox Chapel traded goals at the start of the game but that’s as close as it would get with Lebo jumping out to a 7-2 lead after the first quarter.

Notes

  • In the final year of two section play, the de facto North section proved their dominance again winning 3 of 4 quarter final games.
  • The 2016 semi finals are a carbon copy of the 2015 semi finals.
