Tyrone prevails over Cambria Heights
Tyrone entered Friday night’s playoff game with intentions of proving last year’s state title appearance was no fluke.
The Golden Eagles took a step in that direction, treating their home crowd to a 14-7 win over feisty challenger Cambria Heights.
Both teams entered the game at 7-3, but came from much different history. Cambria Heights hadn’t made the playoffs since 1998, when current head coach Jarrod Lewis was a sophomore on the team.
