Team of the Week – South Fayette
The Lions ran their Century Conference win streak to 13 games by beating Keystone Oaks, 29-18, for the second consecutive year in a game between two Class AA teams ranked in The Patriot-News and Rod Frisco's statewide top 10.
Jeff Davis totaled 177 yards, including 109 on the ground. That presence was just enough to offset the dominating ground game of Keystone Oaks, which came close to totaling 300 rushing yards.
Christian Brumbaugh had another strong outing as he passed for 278 yards with one TD and one interception. Tyler Challingsworth caught five passes for 112 yards and younger brother Zach Challingsworth – whom head coach Joe Rossi believes will be a Division I player – caught three for 98.

Game of the Week – Carmichaels 27, Jefferson-Morgan 21
The oldest and most-played rivalry in Greene County (not to mention the WPIAL) had one of its better editions in its recent history as Carmichaels rallied to beat Jefferson-Morgan at home and keep its playoff chances alive.
The Mikes trailed 21-12 heading into the fourth quarter before a pair of Josh Mundell touchdown runs pushed Carmichaels' record in the Tri-County South to 2-3 and evened the overall record at 3-3. Mundell's final touchdown came with 3:15 remaining and Carmichaels trailing by two points.
Weird, wild stuff – Avella is 0-6 but the pass-happy Eagles have a pair of the WPIAL's leading pass catchers in Kolton Kobrys and Damon Cupp. Kobrys, a freshman, had eight catches for 102 yards against Carlynton to push his season totals to 37 receptions and 331 yards. … Frazier has a 4-1 record in the Tri-County South Conference. … Bethel Park and Canon-McMillan combined to rush for 608 yards.
