A winning Pennsylvania Cash 5 ticket was sold Friday in Leechburg, the Pennsylvania Lottery announced Monday.

The ticket sold at Sprankle's Neighborhood Market was one of two that split the $125,000 jackpot. The other was sold in Lancaster County.

Both tickets matched all five balls drawn — 3, 13, 17, 24, and 31. Each won $62,500, less applicable withholding.

Winners have a year from the drawing date to claim prizes.

More than 24,100 other Cash 5 tickets won prizes of various amounts in the drawing, according to the lottery.

In the 2015-16 fiscal year, the lottery awarded more than $14.4 million in prizes and contributed more than $7.5 million to senior benefit programs in Armstrong County.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
