AAAAA Playoffs

Post by Crimson's Ghost » November 15th, 2020, 10:05 am

Two teams in Western Pennsylvania and two teams from Eastern Pennsylvania remain alive for the Class 5A state championship. Seems simple, right?

In the "Western" Final, Pine-Richland (10-0) of the WPIAL will take on Governor Mifflin (8-0) of District 3. Not THAT uncommon, as District 3 can sometimes be thrown in the west due to the lack of bigger schools on this end of the state.


BUT in the Eastern Final, the very westernmost AAAAA school will be playing a team from Philadelphia. Erie Cathedral Prep (6-2) will play Upper Dublin (7-1) from the Philly suburbs.


The PIAA will have all four teams travel to Hollidaysburg this weekend for the game.

With Hollidaysburg schools shutting down for Covid, will that affect the location?
It ain't over until it's over.

At least two of those four teams won by forfeit.
