    Any clue why the Sharpsville-Port Allegany game was scheduled for Bradford instead of a more central location like Clarion University? I knew there was a lot of talk and discussion about the site for this game, so I was just wondering about any thoughts the people had when choosing this venue.

    • Tom Reisenweber says:

      Not sure. I thought Clarion was a slam dunk to be honest with you. I know PA has played their last few games at Bradford and maybe they made a huge push to stay there?


  2. Greg says:

    I agree, like last year when it was played at Slippery Rock.

  3. Dan says:

    Besides playing at home (Erie), what else can be done to help Prep win Friday? Why isn’t this game being played in a more central location? Unbelievable and I’m not even a West Allegheny fan.

    • Tom Reisenweber says:

      The PIAA always sticks the home team nearby. I think part of it is to make sure ticket sales are good but it’s also an advantage for being the home team.

      Prep in 2009 was the road team and had to play at North Allegheny against West Allegheny. Prep was the home team in 2010 and played at the Vet. Grove City was the road team last year and had to go to North Allegheny to play Montour and so on.

      Another perfect example is in the other three classes. McDowell is the road team and they have to go to Seneca Valley to play North Allegheny when there are a handful of sites more in the middle.

      Hickory gets to play a D-6 team at Slippery Rock, which is a much closer game to Hickory because the Hornets are the home team.

      Sharpsville is the road team and has to go 3 hours to play Port Allegany, who only travels 45 minutes.

      It’s the way it is done for everyone and it’s not just Prep being helped.

    Where’s Dan’s comments now? The facts were too hard to swallow??? Now that Tom explained to him what has happened last four years. It is not fair each year, but there is nothing in District 10 to host between Erie and Slippery Rock that has decent seating for large crowds. And guess what, if played in Slippery Rock, though in D10, it would be closer to West Allegheny than Prep. So, that’s the facts. Why be host but yet visitor travels less?????????? Look at what Tom said, West A and NOrth A had games in their own back yards too. Next year, the D10 rep would be playing in District regardless if Prep or not!!!!!!!!

    HI Dan! Still waiting on comments. People like to blurt out stuff that not true. Dispute any of what I said!
