Here's a look at three of the top games involving South teams in Week 4.
Beaver (3-0) at Keystone Oaks (3-0), Friday, 7 p.m. - The Post-Gazette's Game of the Week is a matchup of ranked Class 3A teams that feature standout quarterbacks. Top-ranked Beaver is led by Darius Wise, who has been brilliant in the early going. Wise helped the Bobcats stun Aliquippa in Week 2 and has rushed for 506 yards and eight touchdowns. Keystone Oaks' Alex Smith isn't a gamebreaker as a runner, but he does put up big numbers throwing the ball. He's thrown for 774 yards and eight touchdowns. There should be plenty of points, as these are the top two scoring teams in 3A. Keystone Oaks averages 47 points per game and Beaver averages 38.
Bethel Park (2-1) at Pine-Richland (3-1), Friday, 7:30 p.m. - Speaking of standout quarterbacks, there is arguably none better in the WPIAL than Pine-Richland's Phil Jurkovec. The junior has passed for 1,180 yards and nine touchdowns. Jurkovec surprisingly didn't have a touchdown pass in last week's 52-21 rout of Penn Hills. Instead, it was Jordan Crawford's night. Crawford rushed for 156 yards and four touchdowns. Pine-Richland averages 43 points per game, but Bethel Park allows only 13.7 a game, which ranks first in Class 6A. Cole Rogers threw for two touchdowns in last week's 27-13 win at Norwin. Bethel Park's only loss was at North Allegheny in Week 1.
