Erie generally has two (sometimes three) schools that are decent.
Erie Cathedral Prep is the private school that always does well. McDowell is the big suburban schools (4A in PIAA) and Erie Strong Vincent is the consistently decent city school (East and Central are the other two and generally not that good).
It's never a surprise to see Prep do well. Against OHSAA D1, they might have trouble, but against a smaller private school, you'd favor them. No different than when Ursuline would play St. Ed or Iggy.
Even if Steubenville loses this game, I still think they get enough points to make it at 8-2. A home game may be an issue, though.
