Football: South Fayette wins fifth consecutive conference title

Written by Brad Everett on .

Different season.

Same accomplishment.

South Fayette can once again call itself conference champs.

South Fayette clinched its fifth consecutive conference title last Friday when it defeated Highlands. The win improved the Lions to 9-0 overall and 7-0 in the Class 4A Northwest Nine Conference. The Lions captured the 2A Century Conference crown the previous four seasons under the four-classification system.

What's even more impressive is that the seniors on this year's team have never lost a conference game. South Fayette will go into Friday's regular-season finale against Montour having won 41 conference games in a row. Its last conference loss was against Seton-LaSalle on Oct. 21, 2011. Since 2012, the Lions are 64-2. Their only defeats were to Washington in the 2012 WPIAL semifinals and Aliquippa in last year's WPIAL championship.

Football: South Fayette’s Love sets rushing record

Written by Brad Everett on .

South Fayette hoped to find a way to beat New Castle in their conference showdown last Friday.

It turned out all it needed was a lot of Love.

South Fayette has had a couple of excellent running backs over the last decade, but none of them -- and none in school history -- ran for as many yards in a game as Geavonie Love produced against New Castle. Love rushed for a school-record 303 yards in a 37-13 win.

Love, a senior running back, scored touchdowns on runs of 33, 1, 3 and 10 yards. The final three started a run that saw South Fayette outscore New Castle, 28-0, to end the game.
