2nd WPIAL football playoff game moved to artificial turf
Thursday, October 31, 2019 | 7:43 PM
Friday’s forecast predicts drier weather, but Thursday’s rain was enough to force two WPIAL football playoff games to be moved off grass.
The WPIAL announced that Our Lady of the Sacred Heart and Clairton will play their Class A first-round game at West Mifflin. They were schedule to play at Clairton’s Neil C. Brown Stadium.
The move followed a decision to move California and Cornell to West Allegheny.
Kickoff for both games remains 7 p.m. Friday.
Not everybody is headed for artificial turf. Apollo-Ridge, Burgettstown, Derry and West Greene remain scheduled to host playoff games Friday on grass.
A year ago, West Greene moved to an artificial surface, but this year the Pioneers plan to play at home, coach Brian Hanson said Thursday.
