Two streaking WPIAL football teams return to this week’s Trib 10 Power Rankings
Wednesday, October 16, 2019 | 9:17 PM
Three Trib 10 teams lost in Week 7. While one fell a couple of spots, the other two were deleted from this week’s power rankings.
While North Allegheny, Thomas Jefferson, Penn-Trafford, Aliquippa, Central Catholic, Pine-Richland and Central Valley all won in Week 7, Gateway lost to Ohio power Massillon Washington and fell two spots to No. 7.
Bethel Park and Mt. Lebanon were not so fortunate, as their losses last week kept them from feeling the power rankings this week.
Losses by the South Hills schools provided an opening for a pair of teams that were ranked in the preseason power rankings, but losses in Week Zero bumped them off the radar.
Now seven-game win streaks have Penn Hills and South Fayette back on the district power grid heading into the next-to-last weekend of the regular season.
Here are the rankings heading into Week 8. These rankings have zero classification boundaries.
