Football fans tend to think of a great game in terms of a close game – a game in which the outcome is in doubt until the final minute, a contest where winner and loser are defined by a single play.

Sometimes, however, a great game can mean a game in which the combatants play the game at a high level. Great football players can make for a great football game.

One week left in the 2014 WPIAL regular season. One week left for teams to prove they’re ready for the playoffs.

For the team sitting atop the AAAA Quad Southeastern conference, the Woodland Hills Wolverines, there is not much left to prove. But there is a whole lot left to play for.

Clairton sophomore Lamont Wade ran for 272 yards and three touchdowns on 19 carries as the Bears routed Monessen 60-0 in the teams' first game since Monessen snapped Clairton's 66-game winning streak a year ago.

Although Clairton once again ran away with a big victory, the game was played at an intense level from the time the two teams took the field.

Monessen (4-3) is fresh off a 52-22 loss to Jeanette and will need a win against either Clairton (7-0) or Springdale (4-3) to return to the WPIAL playoffs.

Unfortunately for the young Greyhounds, Clairton has pummeled all of their opponents thus far.

Third-ranked Thomas Jefferson looks to extend its undefeated record this season against winless Uniontown in Friday’s WPIAL Triple-A Big 9 clash.

The Jaguars dominated their competition again last Friday night, knocking off Albert Gallatin 48-0 in a game that was lopsided from the start.

There is no shortage of great athletes to come out of the Mon-Valley, but perhaps no single institution has produced more great athletes than old Donora High School (now part of Ringgold). The WPIAL Hall of Fame has recognized the following Donora greats.

Some teams don’t rebuild, they reload. Clairton is one of those teams.

The Bears are once again undefeated this season, something they grew accustomed to during a prolific 66-game win streak that came to an end last season.

We miss what we never had. In 2013-15, the sample cart finally swung around the Pittsburgh Pirates fanbase, and it sprinkled on the palate what these devoted enthusiasts have been missing out on since the early ‘90s: glory.

Allow E.C. Matthews to lay down the truth of the impression a college basketball coach should leave on his players. “This is my guy,” the emotional senior guard said of his coach Dan Hurley. “I know we’re not the same color, but he’s definitely my father.”

Mar. 7, 2009 was more than a sunny, brisk day in Pittsburgh. That day nine years ago was hardwood ecstasy, a constant drug that flowed through the veins of a western Pennsylvania college basketball junkie faster than it takes the bathtub section of I-376 to overflow with water after a raging rain storm.
