Pine-Richland’s Dan Petcash Records 1,000th Point In Section-Clinching Win

Posted on:

It was only a matter of time before one of the more prolific scorers in the WPIAL joined the 1,000 point fraternity.

Pine-Richland senior Dan Petcash doesn’t have to wait any longer after achieving that feat on Friday in a 85-64 win at North Hills. The win also clinched the Section 1-6A title after the Rams finished in second place in the section a year ago.

The result of the game was never in doubt after the Rams jumped out to a 24-9 lead after the first quarter.

Petcash was once again the leading scorer for the Rams, putting in 25 points. Before the week started, Petcash led the team in scoring with 21.8 points per game through 16 games.

The Rams are now 17-2 overall and 9-0 in the section. They will go for their 17th straight win and undefeated section record on Tuesday when they host Central Catholic at 7:30 p.m.
