Jeannette, Pa, -- Friday night was treated to an intense match-up between two bitter rivals from Westmoreland County. Only seperated by about a 15 minute drive these two schools share no love loss for one another. The game featured a handful of D-I prospects.

Greensburg Central Catholic came to Jeannette on Friday night ranked as the top Class AA team in the state. The Jeannette Jayhawks had one loss, but were confident on their home turf that they could upset the Centurions.

The Jayhawks controlled both lines of scrimmage and scored the games only touchdown as that handed the favored Centurions their only dfeat by a 7-2 score.

The Centurions came into the game with one of the top offenses in the state led by a trio of D-I recruits quarterback Cody Catalina (Syracuse), wide receiver Nick Sukay (Penn State) and running back/safety Max Suter (Syracuse). They did their damamge , but it was not enough to defeat Jeanette and their talented two-way standout Terrelle Pryor.

Offensively, Pryor a junior executed the option offense to perfection considering the quagmire that the game was played in. Defensively, Pryor wreaked havoc in the backfield all night long. When the game was on the line Pryor moved to safety and picked off a desparation attempt from Catalina to seal the victory.
