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.

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
