Brad Everett recapped the game, Upper St. Clair versus Bethel Park:
"As Upper St. Clair coach Danny Holzer emerged from a throng of a few dozen screaming students inside his team's locker room Tuesday night, a reporter asked him if that type of celebration takes place after all of his team's wins.
"Only the big ones," said Holzer, smiling.
This one certainly qualified.
Upper St. Clair pulled even with Class AAAA No. 4 Bethel Park in the race for the Section 4 title by handing the visiting Black Hawks their second defeat of the season, 63-50, in a battle of Route 19 rivals.
"This was a huge win. One of our goals is to the win the section and then maybe the WPIAL, so getting this win really helps us," said Upper St. Clair junior J.J. Conn."
