Wednesday, October 18, 2023 | 10:19 PM

A week after a surprising shuffle of the deck shook the top half of the weekly power rankings, calmness prevailed in Week 7 as nine of the Trib 10 teams were victorious.

The only change came when No. 3 defeated No. 5.

Central Catholic’s bounce-back victory over Penn Hills drops the Indians three spots.

As we head into the middle week of the three-week regular season stretch run, seven district teams remained undefeated: No. 1 Aliquippa, No. 2 Peters Township, No. 9 Avonworth, No. 10 Elizabeth Forward and unranked teams Washington, Fort Cherry and South Side.
