The race for playoff berths is heating up in the Class 5A Northern Conference, and Hampton is right in the thick of it.

The Talbots (2-4, 2-3) are tied for fourth place with Kiski Area entering Friday night’s matchup at Penn Hills (5-1, 4-1). Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.

The Talbots are coming off three straight losses at North Hills and against Fox Chapel and Kiski Area.

After their meeting with Penn Hills, they have just one conference game remaining — Oct. 25 against Mars.

Penn Hills is riding a five-game winning streak and defeated Armstrong, 52-20, last week.

The game will be video streamed on the TribLive High School Sports Network.
