PREVIEW: Penn Hills vs. Plum (PA)

October 8, 2013

PLUM, PA – The rivalry between the Penn Hills Indians and the Plum Mustangs has been pretty one-sided. We’ll see if that changes when the two teams meet on Friday at 7:30 p.m. An estimated 7,000-plus fans are expected at Penn Hills High School for a game that’s presented by the U.S. Army and Hibbett Sports.

The Indians have won 13 straight in the series, which dates back to 1980. They won 35-7 last season to push their commanding all-time series advantage to 22-4.

Penn Hills, coached by John Peterman, has already eclipsed last season’s win total as it’s currently 4-2 after a 21-19 loss to Bethel Park. Junior back Isaiah Jones and sophomore back Bill Kisner have combined for over 1,400 yards and 12 TDs.

Plum, coached by Ryan Silvis, has really struggled the last few seasons, as it’s just one a single game since 2011 with its last win coming on Sept. 9, 2011 (19-14 over Kittanning). Plum is 0-6 this season and has been outscored 208-16 (35-3 by Peters Township in its last game).
