Scholastic Notebook – 10/05/2012
October 5, 2012
One and four. When those three words are uttered about a football team after five weeks, it usually indicates bad things. But for Blackhawk and Chartiers-Houston records are indeed deceiving. Blackhawk and Chartiers-Houston are two teams that are usually much more than respectable. You could say both have fallen on hard times this season as both are 1-4. But are there many 1-4 teams as good as Blackhawk and Char-Houston? Blackhawk and Char-Houston are the hard-luck stories of the WPIAL this season. A few points here and there, take away a turnover here and there, and their seasons could be vastly different. Want proof? Three of Blackhawk’s losses are by a total of five points. Char-Houston’s four losses are by a total of 17 points.

WPIAL Week Five Saturday’s Scholastic Starz
The only bad thing about a jam-packed Friday night of high school football is that it leaves the Saturday district schedule a tad light. That was the case in Week Five with only THREE WPIAL football games, all on the Class A level. So even though there were only three games, we were still able to keep with the tradition of the Top Five performances from Saturday that led to loud victories on a quiet day.Jake Temple & Nick Kusich - Avella

WPIAL Week Five Friday Night HighLights
September 29, 2012
If you were to picture the WPIAL nine-week regular season, you would envision four weeks of climbing the mountain top, then four weeks of descending either into the district playoffs or into a deep dark crevasse of postseason emptiness.  That would mean Week Five is right at the summit of this high school football mountain. Thus here are the players who planted their teams flag of victory Friday with a steady dose of awesomeness.Tyler Roth & Troy Apke - Mount Lebanon

Scholastic Notebook – 09/28/2012
September 28, 2012
Not only did Seneca Valley’s 34-7 victory against Pittsburgh Central Catholic Thursday night give Seneca Valley a leg up on second place in the Northern Eight Conference, it was a monumental win of sorts for the Raiders. * For the first time in a while, the Raiders won a big game against an upper-echelon Class AAAA team. A year ago, Seneca Valley won a WPIAL playoff game for the first time since 2002. This time, the Raiders defeated a Central Catholic team that was ranked No. 4 in Class AAAA by MSA Sports. * The win broke Central Catholic’s 26-game regular-season winning streak. The Vikings’ last regular-season loss was to Woodland Hills, 27-3, on oct. 2, 2009.
