In most sections, Chartiers Valley would be a playoff team. Unfortunately for the Colts, they are not in most sections. They play in Section 4-AAA, home of Canon-McMillan, Moon and Peters Township. However Chartiers Valley has kept its playoff hopes alive so far. The Colts are 6-5 overall and 5-3 in section play, trailing Canon-McMillan (10-0, 8-0), Peters Township (9-1, 6-1) and Moon (7-2, 5-2). All three of their losses have come to the "Big Three." They dropped a 2-0 decision to Canon-McMillan and a 1-0 game at Peters Township. The Colts will likely have to spring one upset over the top three if it wants to reach the postseason.
"Chartiers Valley has a really solid team," Canon-McMillan coach Dave Derrico said. "But now they have three losses, and to me it is a three-dog race at the moment with us, Moon and Peters."
Chartiers Valley has a tough back-to-back schedule this week when it travels to Canon-McMillan Monday and hosts Peters Township Tuesday. Its remaining section contests are against Brashear and at Moon.
