Commentary and Theory with a yinzer slant #year9

Yinzer High School Action: Week 2

Highlights from the Mt. Lebanon Hempfield game, the full USC Wheeling Central game, and a possible Yinzer Twister.

One of Dan Lee’s deliveries. Better get out to his hands.

Incredible display by Yale commit Brian Ward. Is this a twister or are we projecting? Also, be sure to watch with the volume turned on otherwise the caption doesn’t make sense.

Mt. Lebanon would fall 14-13. Hempfield defeated Seneca Valley 10-7 on Friday.

Glenbrook North (Illinois) used a 3-3 zone to defeat Mt. Lebanon, Shady Side, and Seneca Valley this past weekend. GBN played Mt. Lebanon Friday night then SSA and SV on Saturday.


USC vs. Wheeling Central Catholic

If you don’t have time to watch the full game, take a close look at the first USC offensive position. Wheeling Central is running a 2-3-1 zone and that man is staying at X. He is actually passing off dodgers before they get to GLE so he can return to his spot at X.

Wheeling Central lacrosse zone

USC won the game 17-4 then lost their next game against Cleveland St. Ignatius 17-6. A wild 72 hours for the Panthers.

Wheeling Central Catholic is 0-4. They’ve been shut out in two games.

  • Kiski Prep check in at #4 but since they aren’t WPIAL we pulled them out and moved everyone up a spot.
  • Shaler is the early feel good story of 2015. A year after losing to then D1 Hampton 14-6, Shaler opened the season with a 5-4 victory over now D2 Hampton. Shaler has since rattled off wins against Plum and Butler. Last season, Shaler didn’t win their third game until April 22nd.
  • Sewickley went 1-1 on their North Carolina trip including a win in double overtime. They play…Wheeling Central on Wednesday.
  • New coaches at Mars, Peters, Pine, and Hampton have recorded their first wins and losses as bosses.
