WPIAL Playoffs: Neshannock to take on Monessen

NEW CASTLE — The Neshannock High football team is in for a case of déjà vu.

The Lancers will meet Monessen for the second-straight year in the WPIAL Class A quarterfinals at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Chartiers-Houston.

The Greyhounds (10-1) shared the Black Hills Conference title with Fort Cherry and Clairton, while Neshannock (8-2) finished in second place in the Big Seven Conference behind Sto-Rox.

Last year, the Lancers posted a thrilling come-from-behind 24-21 victory in the two teams’ quarterfinals matchup on Ernie Burkes’ 1-yard run with 9 seconds left.

Burkes ran for 19 yards on a fourth-and-10 from the 20 with 16 seconds left one play earlier.

Tickets for the game will be on sale from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. tomorrow in the high school lobby and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday in the high school office, while tickets also will be available from 9 a.m. to noon Friday in the high school office.

Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 students.
