Week 10 WPIAL picks results

It was a playoff showdown, and, for sure, some of the games were slam-dunks.

But there were some upsets in the first round of the WPIAL playoffs.

Chris Harlan and Keith Barnes both missed on Bethel Park knocking off McKeesport, Keystone Oaks eliminating Greensburg Central Catholic, Freeport taking out Jeannette and North Catholic dumping Sto-Rox.

When all the results were in, Harlan’s picks won out.

He went 26-6 in the 32 first-round games to Barnes’ 24-8.

So the first round goes to Harlan. The quarterfinal selections will be tougher, no doubt about it, so Barnes will get a chance to redeem himself this week.

Overall for last week, Harlan went 27-6 and is now 141-43 for the season.

Barnes finished the week 24-9 for a 144-55 season mark.

Dan Stefano and Paul Schofield hit on their lone picks of the week.

Stefano is 11-3 for the season, and Schofield is 28-3.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
