The Shaler football team remains alive for a WPIAL playoff berth in the Class 5A Northern Conference.

But time is running out on the regular season.

The Titans’ Week 7 contest will be quite a test as they host No. 4-ranked Penn Hills (6-1, 5-0) at 7 p.m. Friday.

The Indians have won six straight games and are outscoring opponents 136-53.

Shaler (3-4, 2-2) is in fourth place in the conference. The top five teams in each Class 5A conference advance to the playoffs, along with a sixth-place wild card team.
