"Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic High School football coach Bob Ravenstahl had a tough time putting words together moments after his Trojans football team had vanquished Neshannock, 27-14, in a WPIAL Class A semifinal football game this past Friday night at Mars Area High School.
"Words can't describe the feeling of the team and myself, to be honest with you," he said.
Words, though, really weren't needed. P.J. Fulmore, the Trojans' multi-talented offensive threat and defensive standout, gashed the Lancers' defense for 216 yards on 42 rushes and scored four close-range touchdowns as the Trojans improved to 12-0 and meet equally perfect Sto-Rox (12-0) at 11 a.m. Saturday at Heinz Field.
The Vikings advanced with a 24-19 victory against five-time defending WPIAL champion Clairton, who also had won four successive PIAA Class A championships."
