We’ve made it. We’ve reached the postseason.
And that means we’re a little more than a month away from crowning six new PIAA high school football champions.
This weekend marks the start of that journey, with all but the Class 6A tournament underway in District 3. While 6A has an off week, 1A will crown a champion (see: Steel-High) and 2A through 5A will give us some interesting matchups as they inch toward crowning champions of their own.
4th Down’s coverage area also includes the District 4, 6 and 11 tournaments, and we’ll be following those games closely as well.
As always, bookmark this page on your phone, laptop or tablet to follow every matchup and see every highlight from the Mid-Penn and some of the teams in the Colonial-Schuylkill League. We’ll update scores throughout the night on this page (refresh the page to see new updates), and you can follow our Twitter feed below for minute-by-minute updates.
