Football: University Prep, Allderdice and Perry race to early lead in the City League

Written by Brad Everett on .

There's plenty of football left to be played this season, but three City League teams have helped their cause by getting off to strong starts.

University Prep, Allderdice and Perry all won this week and are unbeaten in league play. University Prep (2-0) has the slight edge on Allderdice (1-0) and Perry (1-0) because the Wildcats have played one more league game.

Defending champion University Prep got a strong showing from Ron Brown to outlast Brashear, 41-34, Friday. Brown, who led all WPIAL and City League players in touchdown passes last season, completed 10 of 19 passes for 239 yards and five touchdowns. Dasean Bonneau caught three of those scoring tosses and Kenny Robinson hauled in two. A week earlier, University Prep edged Westinghouse, 27-20.
