Trinity Girls Win in OT; PIAA Bubble for CM, McG boys, Charleroi girls
Trinity needed overtime but the #2 seeded Hillers topped Gateway, earning a berth in the WPIAL semifinals and a trip to the state tournament. Trinity joins Chartiers-Houston's girls and the Wash High boys with state berths in hand. Seven other Washington County teams are on the PIAA bubble, needing help to make the state brackets: girls teams from California, Charleroi, Peters Township and Wash High, plus boys squads from Chartiers-Houston, Canon-McMillan and McGuffey. Semifinals start Monday night, including two games we'll have on WJPA-AM featuring the Chartiers-Houston girls, then the Wash High boys. Trinity's girls play on Wednesday.
Here's the semifinal schedule for Washington County teams. CLICK HERE for brackets.

Penguins Beat Flyers At Heinz Field
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Sidney Crosby scored his NHL-leading 34th goal, Matt Murray made 35 saves and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Philadelphia Flyers 4-2 at blustery Heinz Field on Saturday night. Matt Cullen, Nick Bonino and Chad Ruhwedel also scored for Pittsburgh, which thrilled the capacity crowd at the home of the NFL's Steelers by capitalizing on some shaky goaltending by Michal Neuvirth. Jake Guentzel picked up two assists, and the Penguins drew within five points of Metropolitan Division-leading Washington. Jakub Voracek and Shayne Gostisbehere scored for Philadelphia, but Neuvirth stopped just 25 of 29 shots as the Flyers dropped to 0-3 in outdoor games. Even worse, Philadelphia failed to pick up any ground as it tries to stay within shouting distance of one of the two wild-card spots in the Eastern Conference.
