“Holla if you hear me in the East,” as the younger crowd would gesture in reference to two series sweeps in Wilkinsburg (4-0) and Homewood (3-0-1) over the weekend. In doing so, they broke a third place tie that was held by Wilkinsburg and the Hill District after week six and rank two and three, respectively. But the new “Beast of the East” Garfield (2-1-1) got their series win against the Hill to become the first organization of the 2009 season to reach 20 wins. Lincoln rebounded with the third-best mark in the league, winning their series over North Shore, 3-1. Yet, last but not least, let’s give a shout out to the Braddock organization (2-1-1) who had one of their best showings of the season in a series win over West Pittsburgh.

NOWHERE TO RUN—The pocket collapses around Nigel Noel and he is sacked for a loss.
