  • Curtis, Shawn SHAWN CURTIS| Steelers fairy tale falls flat in San Diego

    The storybook closed down hard on the Pittsburgh Steelers’ playoff hopes Sunday evening.

    Watching the second quarter of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 37-27 win over the Detroit Lions was a lesson in how lethal the Detroit offense can be.

  • Isenberg, Cory CORY ISENBERG | Three schools from area remain in football

    Just three area football teams remain alive in postseason play and all three will play in 7 p.m. contests on Friday night.

The Lions earned a berth in the PIAA playoffs opposite District 9 champ Karns City (11-1), which defeated Kane 49-21 in the title game.
