The second half of the regular season is going to be key for the North Hills football team. If the Indians want to lock up a postseason berth out of the Allegheny Nine Conference, they'll need to win some big games down the stretch.
North Hills (3-2, 2-2) won its second straight game last week with a 29-12 victory over Moon. The Indians scored 20 points in the second half on the road against the Tigers. Nick Santucci, Tyler Brennan and Melvin Blanks each scored touchdowns while Dan Wagner notched a pair of field goals.
This week, North Hills plays host to Baldwin (1-3, 1-3). Next week, the Indians will host perennial-powerhouse Woodland Hills (4-1, 3-1) before closing its conference schedule the final week of the season against Hampton (0-5, 0-3).
Through five games, Will Hirt has completed 39 of 70 passes for 453 yards and four touchdowns. Santucci leads the team in scoring with six touchdowns.
