Ricky Rogers, a former Keystone Oaks football player, is eligible to play at Gateway High School this year.
A former Keystone Oaks football player has won an appeal with the PIAA and is now eligible to play football at Gateway High School this year, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Earlier this year, the WPIAL had ruled Ricky Rogers, a junior receiver, not eligible to play for Gateway this season, saying he had made the transfer for athletic reasons. Rogers appealed to the PIAA, and the ruling was overturned on Thursday. The PIAA also overturned similar rulings for four other high school athletes. Rogers has transferred schools three times in two years. For the full story from the Post-Gazette, click here. Follow Dormont-Brookline Patch on Facebook and Twitter.

The Keystone Oaks High School football team will play South Park and others next season.
Keystone Oaks High School football coach Nick Kamberis said his team could face some challenging new opponents next season. The WPIAL Board of Control approved a new alignment of its football conferences for the 2012 season on Tuesday. Keystone Oaks football will remain in Class AA, but will have some new teams to play. “South Park is moving down from AAA, so they will be a formidable opponent,” Kamberis said. South Park used to be a Class AA team, he said, and based on past experiences playing the team, he expects it to pose a challenge to Keystone Oaks. He said Quaker Valley, a Class AA team, also showed a lot of improvement last season and will be a team to keep an eye on. In addition to the challenge, Kamberis said, playing other teams…

The Golden Eagles will face the Gladiators this Friday.
Keystone Oaks’ head football coach Nick Kamberis isn’t looking ahead, no matter how good the next few weeks may be. His Golden Eagles team is off to a strong start in the WPIAL AA Century League schedule, but that’s not going to alter the approach they’ve had since the beginning of the season. “We will do what we’ve done all year. We will focus only on one game a time and see what happens at the end. We pride ourselves on staying on the ‘now’ mountain.” The “now” mountain finds them fresh off a 27-20 victory over Quaker Valley in their first conference game of the season. The win was the Golden Eagles’ first at home this year, and it was a back-and-forth contest down to the very end. Despite a few miscues and turnovers that nearly cost …

The Lady Golden Eagles are coming off a 62-28 win over New Brighton in Friday's preliminary round.
UPDATE: The game is postponed to Wednesday. The Keystone Oaks Lady Golden Eagles continue their playoff run Tuesday when they take on the third-seeded Avonworth Antelopes in the first round of the WPIAL AA Playoffs at Northgate High School. The 12th-seeded Lady Golden Eagles are coming off a 62-28 victory against the New Brighton Lady Lions in Friday's preliminary round. The win was the first WPIAL playoff victory for the Keystone Oaks girls’ program in 15 years, and coach Gene Mercuri wants to build on it. “It was a program-changer for sure. It was a monumental step for us to take, but we’re not satisfied yet. We want to keep going,” he said. Mercuri and the Lady Golden Eagles realize the challenge Avonworth poses. “They’re a tough team…

The Lady Golden Eagles play the New Brighton Lady Lions and the Golden Eagles play the Ringgold Rams. Both games are at Moon Area High School Friday night.
The Keystone Oaks Lady Golden Eagles play their first basketball playoff game in years Friday while the boys' team hopes to go farther as they continue to build a team for the future. The 12th seed Lady Golden Eagles, 15-7, play the New Brighton Lady Lions, 7-13, at 6:30 p.m. in the first round of AA playoffs at Moon Area High School. “Records and seeds really don’t mean anything at this point,” coach Gene Mercuri said. “Both of these teams have done enough to get into the playoffs. Now it comes down to who executes and who wants to move on.” Mercuri doesn’t think the unchartered territory will be much of a factor. “After the first couple possessions, it’ll feel like any other game. If we go out there and execute the way we know how, we’ll…
