Wednesday, September 25, 2019 | 10:34 PM
Two Trib 10 teams from a week ago lost in Week 4, one dropping a spot while the other dropped out completely.
While the top three teams remain the same, Penn-Trafford lost to Ohio power Massillon Washington last week, dropping from No. 4 to No. 5.
The Warriors flip-flopped with Peters Township, as the undefeated Indians crack the top four.
At the bottom of the power rankings, Bethel Park lost for the first time and is bumped from this week’s Trib 10, replaced by neighbor and rival Upper St. Clair.
There is a head-to-head showdown coming up on Friday when top-ranked Pine-Richland visits No. 8 Central Catholic in our HSSN video stream game of the week.
Here are the rankings heading into Week 5. These rankings have no classification boundaries.
