PITTSBURGH -- The sixth week of the 2020 high school football season features a two-night doubleheader on AHN Friday Night Rivals on 22 The Point, with South Fayette hosting West Allegheny on Friday, Oct. 16 followed by a special Saturday, Oct. 17 broadcast pitting Gateway at Woodland Hills.

The live coverage for both games kicks off at 7 p.m. on 22 The Point and streaming on 22thepoint.com.

After moving up to Class 5A this season, South Fayette is off to a 3-2 start to the season, following wins over Dover (Ohio), Moon Area and Bethel Park.

The Lions appeared on AHN Friday Night Rivals on Sept. 25, a 17-3 loss to Peters Township.

Following the defeat, head coach Joe Rossi's team has followed up with two-straight victories.

Under first-year head coach Dave Schoppe, West Allegheny also enters with a 3-2 record and will be looking to rebound following a 37-27 loss a week ago to Upper St. Clair.

The 2020 campaign has been anything but normal for the Gateway Gators.

Looking to repeat as WPIAL Class 5A champs, Don Holl's program enters this matchup against Woodland Hills having only played two games during this 2020 season due to COVID-19 protocols.

Led by highly-coveted defensive back recruit Derrick Davis, the Gators' two victories have been impressive, 41-7 over Franklin Regional and 55-14 over Bethel Park.

Woodland Hills could be the toughest test Gateway has faced so far.

Following a 3-7 mark last season, junior quarterback Deonte Williams has the Wolverines off to a 4-1 start, including wins over Connellsville, Penn Hills, North Hills and Franklin Regional.
