Fox Chapel falls; prepares for home opener
TribLIVE Sports Videos
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.

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.
