High School Football Wrap Up
Mike Cushma kick a game-winning field goal, leading Chartiers-Houston to a win over Fort Cherry, clinching a playoff berth for the Bucs. CHHS is the fourth place finisher in the Class A Black Hills Conference.
In the Tri-County South, Avella rolled past West Greene. That win, coupled with Beth-Center's win at Bentworth, puts the Eagles into the playoffs for the second straight year as the TCS fourth place team. B-C finished the regular season unbeaten, winning the conference title.

Wash High scored three times in a 7:06 span of the second half, rallying to down McGuffey and win the Double-A Interstate Conference title. The Little Prexies are 9-0, their fifth unbeaten regular season in the last 25 years. McGuffey finishes in third place in the conference and will open the playoffs on the road. Waynesburg's win over Derry Area puts the fourth-place Raiders into the post-season as well. Trinity's late surge toward a Triple-A berth came up short as the Hillers lost at Ringgold. Trinity had won four of five heading into the game.

The WPIAL Football Committee will announce the playoff pairings Monday night. We'll carry the MSA Sports Playoff Pairings Show, starting at 7 pm.

Royals Gain Control in Series
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The Kansas City Royals got another solid performance from their bullpen on Friday to take a two-games-to-one lead in the World Series. Royals relievers tossed four hitless innings to lead a 3-2 win over the Giants in San Francisco. Kelvin Herrera worked out of a sixth-inning jam before Herrera, Brandon Finnegan, Wade Davis and Greg Holland combined to retire the last nine Giants in order. The strong relief work came after winning pitcher Jeremy Guthrie allowed two runs and four hits in five-plus innings. Guthrie had a two-hitter and a 3-0 lead until Brandon Crawford led off the sixth with a single and scored on Michael Morse's RBI double. Buster Posey's grounder plated the Giants' second run later in the sixth. Right fielder Lorenzo Cain made a pair of nice catches and put the Royals ahead to stay with an RBI grounder three batters into the game. Kansas City padded its lead in the sixth as Alex Gordon hit an RBI double and scored on Eric Hosmer's single. Kansas City is now 10-1 in the postseason, with the lone loss coming against the Giants on Tuesday. San Francisco has dropped two straight after winning their previous seven World Series games. Losing pitcher Tim Hudson allowed three runs and four hits in 5 2/3 innings. Game 4 is Saturday in San Francisco. Ryan Vogelsong will try to even the series for the Giants against Jason Vargas.
