Another night of basketball was interrupted by wintry weather.

All but one scheduled WPIAL game for Armstrong County teams were postponed Monday night, including the Ford City at West Shamokin and Kittanning at Mars section matchups.

The Ford City-West Shamokin game will be made up Wednesday, while no date was announced for Kittanning-Mars or the nonsection boys game between Karns City and Freeport.

In District 9, Redbank Valley’s boys-girls basketball doubleheader at Clarion and the Karns City at Keystone girls basketball game were postponed. Redbank Valley’s games will be made up Saturday as a boys-girls doubleheader between the schools, while no makeup date was announced for Karns City’s KSAC-South girls matchup.

Apollo-Ridge 62, Leechburg 17 — Claire Broman scored a game-high 14 points to pace the playoff-bound Vikings in a Section 1-AA girls basketball win at home. Jackie Rearick and Mariah Laird scored 10 points for Apollo-Ridge (11-6, 4-5), while Kathleen Camp and Missy Jones led Leechburg (1-15, 0-9) with six points each.


Schedules released — The WPIAL released schedules for the 2014 football season, and Armstrong County’s backyard brawl got slotted as the season finale.

The 75th and final scheduled meeting between Kittanning and Ford City will be played on the final Friday of the regular season, Oct. 24, in Kittanning. Ford City leads the all-time series 37-36-1.

Two of the new Allegheny Conference members will meet in the season opener when Apollo-Ridge visits West Shamokin on Aug. 29. Other season openers in that conference include Kittanning at Deer Lakes, Highlands at Ford City and Shady Side Academy at Freeport. Leechburg’s season and Eastern Conference opener will be Aug. 30 at Wilkinsburg.

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.
