The Quaker Valley football team will finish up one of its best regular seasons in over a decade this weekend. The Quakers (7-1, 7-1) travel to non-section Ellwood City to meet the Wolverines at 7 p.m.
In line to finish second in the Century Conference behind No. 2 South Fayette (8-0, 7-0), Quaker Valley has already locked down a berth into the WPIAL Class AA playoffs and is celebrating its first winning season since 2008. This year also is the first time since 1999 the Quakers qualified for the postseason.
"I knew it was going to be a special year," Quaker Valley coach John Tortorea said. "Coming into the season, it was the first time we had a legit chance to talk about playoffs or a section championship. We had been plugging in freshmen and sophomore the past few years, but now these guys are juniors and seniors with experience under their belts."
Outscoring opponents by an average of 35.6-20.1, Quaker Valley enters its regular-season finale riding a two-game winning streak. The only loss the Quakers suffered this season was three weeks ago against South Fayette, 49-15.
