Trib 10: Top 2 teams in weekly power rankings set to collide

Wednesday, October 6, 2021 | 8:11 PM

Several big head-to-head matchups last week led to a pair of Class 6A district teams being bounced from the weekly Trib 10 power rankings.

Top-ranked Mt. Lebanon rolled past North Allegheny while No. 2 Central Catholic shut out Seneca Valley, dropping the Tigers and Raiders from the Trib 10.

It also leads to a huge power struggle in the WPIAL’s biggest classification to highlight Week 6 as No. 1 Mt. Lebanon hosts No. 2 Central Catholic on Friday on HSSN.

The shuffling of the rankings opened the door for Pine-Richland to return to power after a four-week hiatus as the Rams check in at No. 9 while undefeated Hampton debuts at No. 10.

These rankings have zero classification boundaries. Teams are listed with overall record and last week’s ranking.

1. Mt. Lebanon, 6-0, (1): The Blue Devils host No. 2 Central Catholic on Friday on HSSN
