Only two weeks remain in the regular season and only four area teams (Ringgold, Chartiers-Houston, Fort Cherry and Monessen) are in the playoffs. That makes Friday condition critical for just about everyone else, except those already eliminated and the unfortunate teams playing non-conference games.
Canon-McMillan (1-2, 3-4) at Baldwin (1-2, 3-4). The Big Macs and Highlanders are tied with Bethel Park and Mt. Lebanon for third place in the Class AAAA Great Southern. In addition, Baldwin is coach by former C-M coach Dan Pallante.
Steel Valley (6-0, 7-0) at South Fayette (5-1, 6-1). Could have been a battle of the unbeatens had South Fayette not lost at Seton-La Salle Saturday night. The Ironmen can clinch the conference with a win. South Fayette can clinch a playoff spot with a win.
Beth-Center (2-2, 4-3) at Fort Cherry (3-1, 4-3). Not many noticed but Fort Cherry is on a three-game win streak and clicking on offense. Beth-Center got a big win last week but have yet to win consectuive games this year.

Class AAA – Blackhawk at Montour, West Allegheny at New Castle, Trinity at Keystone Oaks
