Week 4 of the 2020 high school football season features a two-night doubleheader of AHN Friday Night Rivals on 22 The Point, including Upper St. Clair at Peters Township on Thursday, Oct. 1 followed by Mt. Lebanon at North Allegheny on Friday, Oct. 2.

PITTSBURGH -- Week 4 of the 2020 high school football season features a two-night doubleheader of AHN Friday Night Rivals on 22 The Point, including Upper St. Clair at Peters Township on Thursday, Oct. 1 followed by Mt. Lebanon at North Allegheny on Friday, Oct. 2.

The live coverage for both broadcasts kicks off at 7 p.m. on 22 The Point (WPNT) and streaming live on 22thepoint.com.

Both Upper St. Clair and Peters Township have been featured on AHN Friday Night Rivals earlier this season, with the Panthers losing a 34-13 decision to Pine-Richland on Sept. 18 and the Indians defeating South Fayette 17-3 on Sept. 25.

Led by head coach TJ Plack, the Indians (2-0) will once again be a top contender in Class 5A and will be looking to move beyond their narrow loss in the 2019 WPIAL championship game.

Florida defensive back commit Donovan McMillon and Miami (Ohio) linebacker commit Corban Hondru will front a stout Peters Township defense.

After going 7-5 last season under new head coach Mike Junko, the Panthers, now 2-1, have high expectations returning 17 starters including senior quarterback Ethan Dahlem and senior wide receiver David Pantellis.

Friday's matchup features a 2-0 North Allegheny squad fresh off of a victory over Central Catholic, taking on Mt. Lebanon, now 1-1 after rebounding from a season-opening loss to Canon-McMillan by beating Hempfield last week.

Art Walker Jr.'s program is looking to replace several key contributors who moved on to college football. The Tigers are now led by BYU commit Nathan Hoke and highly-coveted tight end recruit Khalil Dinkins.

This is longtime WPIAL head coach Bob Palko's second season at the helm at Mount Lebanon, following a 7-5 mark in his first season with the Blue Devils.
