PITTSBURGH -- On a mission to compete for a state championship for the second year in a row, Central Valley will put its unbeaten record on the line against Keystone Oaks in this week's AHN Friday Night Rivals matchup on 22 The Point and streaming on 22thepoint.com.
Following a heartbreaking loss in the 2019 PIAA Class 3A state championship game - a game where the Warriors relinquished a fourth quarter lead - Central Valley is back in the driver's seat in Class 3A, entering the matchup following four straight lopsided victories.
Head coach Mark Lyons has several key playmakers back, including Pitt defensive back commit Stephon Hall and quarterback Ameer Dudley.
Led by senior quarterback Logan Shrubb, head coach Greg Perry's Keystone Oaks program is returning 15 starters this season, following a 6-4 campaign a year ago.
The Golden Eagles enter this matchup 3-1 following a victory over Avonworth.
