"The three meaningful words often associated with Seneca Valley this year and last year have been "first time since."
A year ago, Seneca Valley won a playoff game for the first time since 2002. This season, the Raiders have won 10 games for the first time since 1995 and made it to the WPIAL Class AAAA semifinals for the first time since '97.
Tonight, the Raiders will try to add another "first time since" to their resume. Standing in their way is a team that has thoroughly dominated Seneca Valley over the past decade.
Seneca Valley (10-1) meets North Allegheny (11-0) in a WPIAL Class AAAA semifinal at North Hills' Martorelli Stadium. North Allegheny has won 11 consecutive games against Seneca Valley and most of them have been blowouts. In the 11 victories, North Allegheny has outscored Seneca Valley, 412-125, including a 45-3 win earlier this season."
