Peters Township has an excellent offense which features WPIAL home run leader Tor Sehnert, but how will the Indians fare against one of the area's best pitching staffs?
The 8-9 game should be a good one in Class AAAA, as No. 8 Fox Chapel plays No. 9 Peters Township today -- weather permitting -- at West Mifflin.
Fox Chapel (14-5) has eight shutouts on the season, the most of any Class AAAA team. The Foxes finished the regular season with three consecutive shutouts, each coming against playoff teams (Mt. Lebanon, Shady Side Academy and North Hills). Take away a 14-4 loss to undefeated Plum, and the Foxes are allowing only 1.4 runs per game.
Peters Township (12-7) has won six of its last seven games, scoring at least nine runs in four of those wins. The Indians are averaging eight runs per game in their wins.
