With just three local teams qualifying for the District 3 postseason, options were limited. East Pennsboro heads to Susquehannock for a 4-vs.-5 matchup in District 3 Class 4A, a battle worthy of our Game of the Week.
The Panthers (8-2) have steadily improved all season and are led by the Mid-Penn's best all-around back, senior Onasis Neely. After a first-round knockout last year, Neely and the Panthers are eager to stick around a bit longer. But the Warriors (8-2) are YAIAA Division 2 champions with quality on both sides of the ball.
The road aheaad for both teams only gets tougher, whoever wins this one. Unbeaten Berks Catholic should beat Gettysburg, setting up next week's semifinal. And Bishop McDevitt is lurking on the bottom of the 4A bracket as well.
Reporter Geoff Morrow will have updates on Twitter (@RageAgainst) throughout the game, and the recap and video and will be online Friday night.
