    How is it that North Hills has to travel to Chartiers to play USC in their backyard and we are the higher seed. NA gets to play 10 minutes from home at Pine and they are a lower seed. Who at the WPIAL decides this crap?? What a joke. Just further proof that the WPIAL is run by clowns!!!

    Chartiers Valley is in Western Pittsburgh suburbs…

    The WPIAL is so messed up it almost seems as though they pick favorites each year and try and give them a slight advantage thinking no one will notice. For the quarterfinals USC and NA both get to play at a stadium so close that it basically makes it a home game.

    i agree with jaws, these neutral sites need to be looked into more

    North Hills got that field becuase it is a known fact the WPIAL does not like McCurry. You know what alot of people dont like McCurry – Not bacause he is a good coach but because he is just not a nice guy at all.

    agree … I thought NH might play USC at NA field … if not maybe PR field … but not CV field …

    also thought NA might play BP at NH field … but was not totally surprised game was at PR field … two years ago NA played BP – BP was higher seed and game was played at Baldwin field …..
