PT, CM sites set

The Peters Township and Canon-McMillan baseball quarterfinals sites have been determined. At least the Indians know who they're playing as of Monday morning.

No. 1 Seneca Valley (17-2) vs. No. 8 Peters Township (15-6) at North Allegheny, Tuesday at 4 p.m.

No. 3 Canon-McMillan (16-4) vs. Shaler/Gateway winner at the Burkett Complex, Tuesday at 7 p.m.

The SV-PT game is shaping up to be epic considering the way the Indians are hitting of late. SV pitcher Cory Mazzoni is one of the best and there's no way he'll be saved for the next round. The game is a coin flip but I'm leaning toward Peters Township advancing.

Also, I expect the Big Macs to move into the semifinals regardless of opponent.

Seneca Valley had to take one look at the potential match up and realize that there second round game against Peters was inevitable. Early prediction, SV pitching will shut down Peters bats in a close game. SV by 2. This should be the game of the WPIAL play-offs and unfortunately, the loser will not have the opportunity to qualify for states.
Shaler coming out of the conference that still has all 3 teams playing on, could be the surprise of the week. But I still think that CM has the weapons to compete and as Brian has pointed out, are very good in close games. Macs by 3..
