State Quarter: Sharpsville-Kane, 11/28

2014 PIAA Class A State Quarterfinals
Friday, November 28, 2014 at Slippery Rock University at 7 pm
Sharpsville (10-3) vs. Kane (9-3)

Noteworthy: Kane began the season with a 4-0 mark before losing three of their next four games by a total of 3 points (Ridgway, 21-20; Curwensville, 7-6; Elk County Catholic, 13-12). Since that skid, the Wolves have won their last four games by only allowing their opponents to score an average of 7 points per game…Sharpsville had a similar path beginning the campaign with a 5-0 record after knocking off West Middlesex in week five by a 14-7 count. However, the Blue Devils fell in three of their final five games during the regular season. The post-season has been a different story as they’ve been able to average 39.7 points in the district tournament.
