Mustangs shutout 35-0, remain winless.
Woodland Hills scored less than two minutes into the contest, and never looked back, as the Wolverines dominated the Mustangs en route to a 35-0 victory Friday night at Plum. The Mustangs (0-4, 0-4 WPIAL AAAA Southeastern Conference) turned the ball over on the second play from scrimmage, as Plum senior quarterback Corey DeLoach had his pass intercepted by Khalil Harper, who returned it to the Mustangs’ 8-yard-line. Two plays later, Dequan White found the end zone to put the Wolverines ahead, a lead they would never relinquish. Plum Head Coach Frank Sacco emphasized the significance of the poor start. “We shoot ourselves in the foot on the first drive,” Sacco said. “You can’t do that against a football team like Woodland Hills.

The Woodland Hills Wolverines brought a football season filled with uphill battles to a bittersweet end Nov. 27, losing 21-14 to the North Allegheny Tigers in the WPIAL AAAA championship game at Heinz Field. The Wolverines were defending a championship title, winning last year against Gateway 10-0. Had his team won, head coach George Novak would have been the only WPIAL coach to win seven championships. "This year, the playoffs were extremely tough -- we had to beat an outstanding Mt. Lebanon team [and] an outstanding North Hills team to get to North Allegheny," Novak said. "We were a little bit flat that first half. They got a sizable lead, and we weren't able to overcome it." The Wolverines fell behind early, coming out of the first half…
