Fox Chapel traveled to Pine-Richland on Friday in the season opener and for three quarters stood toe-to-toe with the Rams.

The Foxes entered the fourth quarter trailing by a field goal, 6-3, but then the floodgates opened as the Rams outscored the Foxes by 22-2 in the final quarter to win going away, 28-5. Billy Urso led the FC offense as he completed 11 passes for 183 yards.

Things don't get any easier for the Foxes this week when they host reigning WPIAL champion North Allegheny and talented quarterback Mack Leftwich.

The top-ranked Tigers opened up with a big road win as they throttled Mt. Lebanon by 39-14.

Leftwich passed for 304 yards in the win.
