Pine-Richland football

The Pine-Richland football team will try to stay undefeated as they travel to take on Central Catholic on Friday.

Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. and the game is scheduled to be played at Gesling Stadium on the campus of Carnegie Mellon University, 500 Forbes Ave., Pittsburgh.

Wines of Gibsonia presentation

To pair with the wine, the afternoon will include food stations featuring sweet and savory appetizers. The tasting will begin at 4 p.m.
