A team that has run to countless wins with a high-powered offense over the years is thriving defensively this season.
Chartiers Valley is allowing 43.6 points per game thus far. That mark is the third best in the WPIAL and second best in Class AAA. Only Knoch (39.2) and Plum (40.0) are allowing fewer points per game.
The Colts have held all but two of their opponents to 50 points or less and have held teams to as low as 26 and 27 points. A season ago, the Colts allowed 50 points per game.
Coach Tim McConnell's team is once again one of the top teams in Class AAA. The Colts are 7-1 overall and 3-0 in Section 5. However, the Colts are coming off what was a somewhat disappointing performance in the Ambridge tournament over the weekend. Friday, the Colts overcame the fact that they did not score in the third quarter to defeat Canon-McMillan, 56-50. A night later, the Colts suffered their first loss, 57-56, against Ambridge.
