Boys Basketball: Fox Chapel losing the close ones

Written by Brad Everett on .

Glance at Fox Chapel's 3-7 record, and the first thought might be that the Foxes just aren't very good this season.

But a closer look at their results suggest that the Foxes might be a lot better than their record suggests.

Fox Chapel is losing more close games than likely any other team in the WPIAL. The Foxes have suffered their seven losses by an average of five points. Four of those defeats have come by four points or fewer, those coming against Hampton, Central Catholic, Franklin Regional and Butler. In the 67-65 loss to Butler last Monday, the Foxes blew an eight-point fourth-quarter lead.

Brighter days could have arrived for the Foxes, though, who carry a two-game winning streak into tonight's Class AAAA Section 2 game at Woodland Hills. The Foxes defeated West Allegheny and Shady Side Academy in the Peter Sauer Memorial Tournament last week. The team's other win came against McKeesport, 54-50, on Dec. 18.

Hockey: Foxes climbing up the standings during current hot streak

Written by Keith Barnes on .

Fox Chapel has not been one of those teams that has rocketed to the top of the standings this season.

 

That being said, the Foxes have been slowly creeping up the ladder and is firmly in the discussion of teams ready to make a run to the PIHL Class AA playoffs.

 

Fox Chapel (5-6-0) has won three of its last four games, including victories against postseason contenders Quaker Valley and Baldwin, and are in the middle of the pack in the Eastern Conference. If the PIHL goes with its original plan and the top five teams in each conference are postseason bound, then the Foxes are in a fight with Penn-Trafford (5-7-0) for the final slot.
