Share with others:
Luke Hagy came close -- very, very close -- to a hallowed mark Friday night. And he was the main reason that Baldwin didn't come close to Mt. Lebanon.
Hagy carried the ball 25 times for 208 yards and three touchdowns, leading the Blue Devils to a 38-7 victory at Baldwin in a Great Southern Conference matchup.
A senior, Hagy finished only 12 yards shy of 4,000 rushing for his career. He needed 220 coming in.
Mt. Lebanon (4-2, 2-0) took a 7-0 lead on quarterback Patrick Goff's 10-yard run, but Dorian Brown's 2-yard run tied it in the first quarter for the Highlanders (3-3, 0-2). The Blue Devils then scored the game's final 31 points, including runs of 4, 7 and 7 yards by Hagy.
Brown finished with 110 yards and 22 rushes.
Trailing 21-20 in the fourth quarter, the Raiders rallied to defeat the host Rams in Northern Seven play. Michael Denny kicked a 28-yard field goal to put Seneca Valley (4-2, 1-2) ahead, 23-21, and Jordan Brown fired a 30-yard touchdown pass to Troy Whitt to clinch the victory. Brown threw three touchdown passes and ran for a score, and was 24 of 36 for 324 yards. Brock Baranowski carried 16 times for 208 yards and had scoring runs of 71 and 90 yards for Pine-Richland (1-5, 1-3), which trailed 14-0 in the first quarter but took a 21-20 lead at the half.
The Wolverines raced to a 31-0 lead before the middle of the second quarter and cruised to a Big East triumph at home. Jaimire Dutrieuille gained 119 yards on 11 carries, including touchdowns of 10 and 59 yards, for Woodland Hills (5-1, 3-1). The Foxes (2-4, 2-1) were held to two first downs and 48 yards -- 16 rushing, 32 passing -- in absorbing their first conference defeat.
Jaquan Williams fired four touchdown passes, two apiece to Chaz Whittaker and Corey Jones, to spark the Indians' easy Big East victory at home. Williams completed 9 of 11 passes for 267 yards, including five to Whittaker for 143 yards and two to Jones for 90. Penn Hills (2-4, 2-1) limited Altoona (2-4, 1-3) to eight first downs and 122 yards of offense.
Damion Jones-Moore scored three touchdowns in the first quarter, leading the visiting Vikings to a Big East rout. Jones-Moore made it 21-0 on a 53-yard pass from Perry Hills, and runs of 8 and 26 yards. Central Catholic (6-0, 4-0), No. 1 in the Post-Gazette's WPIAL and PIAA Class AAAA rankings, went up 42-0 at the half on two touchdown runs by Luigi Linza-Brista and Hills' 60-yard pass to Anthony Nixon. Hills completed 6 of 8 for 186 yards. Chris Zedinak ran for a score and was 15 of 27 for 158 yards for the Mustangs (1-5, 0-3).
Eric Malle ran for two touchdowns and Nick Marshall and Jerret Hannigan one each, leading the Black Hawks to a Great Southern Conference rout on the road. Anthony Cinello completed 11 of 15 passes for 249 yards for Bethel Park (3-3, 2-0), which dropped the Big Macs to 0-6, 0-2.
Dakota Conwell connected with Mike Wilcox on three scoring passes as the Panthers rolled to a Great Southern victory at Peters. Conwell completed 11 of 12 passes for 163 yards, including eight to Wilcox for 135 yards. The pair combined for scores of 3, 18 and 49 yards for Upper St. Clair (5-1, 2-0), No. 3 in the WPIAL. Andrew Erenberg carried 27 times for 156 yards, including a 1-yard score for the Indians (2-4, 0-2), who were outrgained 416 yards tro 224.
Tyler Reddick and Anthony Rizzitano led the offensive onslaught as the Indians (4-2, 2-1) coasted to a Northern Seven triumph at home. Reddick carried 16 times for 156 yards, including 12- and 77-yard touchdowns, and Rizzitano threw 15 yards to Andrew Miller for one score and ran 7 yards for another. Butler (2-4, 0-4) was outgained by North Hills, 457 yards to 106.
Eight players reached the end zone as the visiting Tigers rolled to a non-conference triumph. Mack Leftwich completed 5 of 7 for 253 yards and two touchdowns, and receiver Gregg Garrity had two catches for 153 yards and one touchdown for North Allegheny (6-0), No. 2 in WPIAL Class AAAA. Owen Coprey had a 58-yard touchdown run and Adam Mitcheson a 45-yard field goal for the Cavaliers (0-6, 0-4), who were outgained 539 yards to 255.
The Falcons (3-3, 2-2) edged the host Knights (0-6, 0-3) in Foothills Conference play. Norwin lost to Gateway, 85-0, last week.
The Gators (5-1, 3-1) rolled past the host Spartans (1-5, 1-2) in the Foothills Conference.
Adam Drake's 33-yard field goal in overtime gave the host Wildcats a non-conference victory against the Class AAA Talbots. Richard Hall and Nickolas Taylor put Latrobe (3-3) up, 14-0, in the first quarter on runs or 4 and 12 yards. Hampton (2-4) tied it at halftime, however, on Ben Foreman's 86-yard return of a recovered fumble and Jon Nigro's 14-yard pass top Jon Floss. Nigro, who completed 10 of 19 for 113 yards, put Hampton ahead, 21-14, on a 6-yard throw to Floss in the third, but Logan Carns' 3-yard run in the fourth forced overtime.
