Football coach injured in fall

Beth-Center football coach Ed Woods suffered multiple injuries Saturday after falling from the roof of his home.

Woods has five broken ribs and a collapsed lung from the fall and was flown by helicopter to Mercy Hospital in Pittsburgh, where he remains. He is not expected to be on the sidelines when Beth-Center plays rival Jefferson-Morgan in its season finale.

The Bulldogs, 6-2 overall and 6-1 in the Tri-County South Conference, have clinched a WPIAL Class A playoff berth and will host a first-round playoff game next week.

Head coaching duties at practice and for the Jefferson-Morgan game have been split between offensive coordinator Royce Sofran and defensive coordinator Scott Faieta.
