Elizabeth Forward, Thomas Jefferson, Clairton and Peters Township Play for Football Titles

By Matthew Peaslee

Four teams from the south hills area competed for WPIAL football titles in November. The Thomas Jefferson Jaguars reigned supreme in Class 4A by knocking off Aliquippa in an overtime thriller, 35-28. For Thomas Jefferson, Jake Pugh ran in the game-winning touchdown and McClain Flinn sealed the deal with an interception. Thomas Jefferson defeated Oil City, 62-0, in the PIAA state semifinals and moved on to Hershey for the state championship against Jersey Shore. In the playoffs, the Jaguars also beat Mars and Plum.
