Heading into Thursday’s Section 2-6A match up between Peters Township and Mt. Lebanon, the two teams combined for only one section loss.

PT controlled the game from the opening tip and jumped out to a sizable 25-11 lead after the first quarter. It would only get worse for the Blue Devils, as the first quarter was their highest scoring quarter of the game.
