Football: Penn Hills tops Woodland Hills

Written by Brad Everett on .

Brad Everett covered Friday's game between Woodland Hills and Penn Hills.

"Penn Hills coach John Peterman was a bit repetitive describing the magnitude of the Indians' win Friday night against Woodland Hills.

"It's huge. It's huge. It's huge," Peterman said.

For Penn Hills, it was huge as a regular-season win gets.

Billy Kisner passed for two touchdowns, Penn Hills scored the decisive touchdown midway through the fourth quarter and the Indians forced a late fumble to knock off rival Woodland Hills, 22-15, at the Wolvarena."

Brad Everett's East High School Football Notebook (Oct. 23, 2014)

Written by Brad Everett on .

Here's this week's edition of Brad Everett's East High School Football Notebook.

"Penn Hills has used the jet option to fly to one of the best records in Class AAAA.

If there's another successful flight Friday, Penn Hills could land with a share of the conference title.

There are few rivalries in the East Xtra area that compare to the one between Penn Hills and Woodland Hills. The school districts border each other and many of the players know one another. Both areas have produced dozens of Division I players and a bunch of NFL players. But even more than bragging rights will be on the line when the two tangle at the Wolvarena.

Woodland Hills (7-1, 6-0) sits atop the Southeastern Conference and has clinched a share of a conference title. Penn Hills (6-2, 5-1) is the only team in the way of the Wolverines winning the title outright. If Penn Hills wins, the teams will share the title. The Indians last won a conference championship in 2008."

Football: East Top Games - Week 9 (2014)

Written by Brad Everett on .

Here's a look at three of the top games involving East teams in Week 9.

Penn Hills (6-2, 5-1) at Woodland Hills (7-1, 6-0), Friday, 7:30 p.m. – The only thing left in the path of Woodland Hills winning an outright Class AAAA Southeastern Conference title is arch-rival Penn Hills. If the Indians grab this win at the Wolvarena, they'll earn a share of their first conference title since 2008. Penn Hills' only conference loss came to Bethel Park, 31-28, two weeks ago. The Indians continue to be led by its jet option offense, one that features the running of quarterback Bill Kisner (863 yards, 12 touchdowns) and running back Te'Shan Campbell (834 yards, 14 touchdowns). Woodland Hills is coming off a surprisingly-lopsided 47-0 win at Mt. Lebanon. Miles Sanders was once again the star, running for two touchdowns and adding another on an 85-yard interception return. The Wolverines have taken four of the past five meetings, with the Indians scoring only 26 points total. The Wolverines won last year's matchup, 19-7.

Boys Soccer: Central Catholic set to take on Kiski Area

Written by Stephen Catanese on .

Last Tuesday, Central Catholic fell 2-1 to Upper St. Clair in what the Vikings are surely hoping could be a preview of this year's WPIAL Class AAA final.

However, to get that opportunity, they'll first have to get past Kiski Area.

No. 2 Central Catholic (17-1) faces off against No. 15 Kiski Area (11-7-1) in the opening round of the Class AAA WPIAL playoffs tonight at 6 p.m. at North Allegheny High School.

The Vikings nearly finished the regular season with a perfect record before being upended by the Panthers in their final regular season game.
