Monessen stormed out of the gates to take a 7-0 lead against Lincoln Park last Friday in the WPIAL Class A boys championship. When Monessen coach Joe Salvino was asked after the game about the final outcome, he couldn't help but show a little humor.
"I know that if we would have quit after the seven-point lead we would have been fine," he said.
For Monessen, it turned out to be no walk in the park against Lincoln Park. The much-taller and more-talented Leopards had their way on the inside and outside, and went on to throttle Monessen, 85-41. The margin of victory was the largest in WPIAL Class A history.
