Trib 10: Upset shuffles WPIAL football power rankings
Wednesday, October 20, 2021 | 8:44 PM
The top eight teams from last week’s Trib 10 power rankings remain the same, but a Class 5A surprise in Week 7 led to some movement at the bottom of the poll heading into Week 8.
The defending 5A champions’ misstep opened the door for a McKeesport team that is preparing for a 1-2 punch of No. 5 Thomas Jefferson in this week and No. 2 Belle Vernon next week to careen into the postseason.
These rankings have zero classification boundaries. Teams are listed with overall record and last week’s ranking.
2. Belle Vernon, 7-0, (2): The Leopards have the weekend off
10. McKeesport, 7-1, (NR): The Tigers host No. 5 Thomas Jefferson on Friday on HSSN
Out: Pine-Richland Rams
