Weather forces WPIAL playoff schedule change

| Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014, 9:48 p.m.

A WPIAL playoff basketball doubleheader scheduled for Friday at Hempfield Area High School must be moved, according to WPIAL executive director Tim O'Malley.

Hempfield Township declared a disaster emergency Thursday because of a critical shortage of road salt, and traffic is restricted on roads maintained by the township.

O'Malley said a site will be announced Friday morning on the WPIAL's website,

Penn-Trafford (16-6) and Plum (15-7) girls are scheduled to play a first-round game at 6:30 p.m., with a boys preliminary-round matchup between Mt. Pleasant (15-6) and Kittanning (7-15) to follow.
