In its final tune-up before the WPIAL playoffs, Class AA No. 1 West Allegheny faced a stiff test against Class AAA No. 2 Seneca Valley in boys soccer.

But just like every other team to face the Indians this season, the Raiders were unable to register a victory.

Michael Cummings scored with two minutes remaining to lift West Allegheny (14-0-3) to a 1-0 non-section victory against the host Raiders (14-2-1).

Goalkeeper Spencer Wolfe recorded the shutout. It was the 11th shutout of the season for the Indians, who are one of only two boys teams in the WPIAL without a loss along with Upper St. Clair.

The loss snapped Seneca Valley's 14-game winning streak.
