Girls Basketball: Keystone Oaks has inside track to playoff berth

Written by Joe Koch on .

Keystone Oaks would love to finish the regular season with a record above .500 against Section 5-AAA rivals. Currently, the Eagles are 5-5 and in control of fourth place. That might be a tall task as the Golden Eagles last section games are at home today against third-place Chartiers Valley and on the road at section leader South Fayette Thursday.

A break-even result against these two teams would give the Eagles a 6-6 section record. Two losses put them at 5-7. If fifth-place Montour sweeps Trinity and Quaker Valley, the Spartans finish at 5-7.

If there is a tie for fourth place, though, the Eagles, though, have the inside track to the playoffs. They swept the season series with the Spartans by scores of 44-39 and 64-57.
