Joe Koch profiles the Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic football team.
"For the past two seasons, the Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic High School football team achieved unprecedented success with titles in the 2013 WPIAL and PIAA Class A football championship games.
But the road to repeat honors can be a difficult one, and the Trojans learned that harsh truth at the WPIAL Class A semifinals this past Friday with a 28-21 loss to Avonworth in a semifinal played at the Mars Athletic Complex.
The result left both teams with 11-1 records. Avonworth meets a familiar participant in the WPIAL Class A championship game — Clairton — at 11 a.m. Friday at Heniz Field."
