Who: Yough (3-2, 3-0) at No. 10 Greensburg Salem (3-2, 2-0)

Conference: Keystone Conference

When: 7:30 p.m. Friday

Where: Offutt Field

For the second consecutive week, Greensburg Salem is involved in a first-place battle.

The Golden Lions used a three-touchdown performance from running back Matt Adams, good special teams play and a couple of late defensive stands to edge Uniontown, 35-34.

Junior defensive end Vinnie Mongelluzzo intercepted a pass with 1:31 left to clinch the win for the Golden Lions. Mongelluzzo also blocked an extra point in the second quarter.

Defensive back Jerry Cooley blocked a punt, and Adam Short had two long kickoff returns, including a 64-yard run to open the game.

The Golden Lions’ defense, which gave up 216 yards passing last week, must contain Yough’s new flexbone offense.

Yough has chewed up a lot of yards on the ground. Bob Bridge (121 yards) and Ben Hoffer (160) each rushed for more than 100 yards in a victory last week against Albert Gallatin. Hoffer had a 99-yard touchdown run.

Hoffer has rushed for 545 yards and nine touchdowns and Bridge 530 and five.

Matt Adams has rushed for 731 and scored eight touchdowns for Greensburg Salem, and quarterback Steve Fagert has completed 35 of 67 passes for 638 yards and nine touchdowns.

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.
