State College football team to meet McDowell Saturday at Slippery Rock

Little Lions set to face Trojans

November 18, 2012 

The State College football team will look to take its next postseason step Saturday afternoon when it meets McDowell in a PIAA Class AAAA subregional game.

The Little Lions and the Trojans, from Erie and the champions of District 10, will kick off at 1 p.m. at Slippery Rock University. McDowell (6-5), suffered four of its five losses at the hands of Ohio power programs and enters the game on a four-game win streak with an average score over those games of 55-8.

The Trojans beat Perry Traditional 61-14 last Friday, while State College dropped DuBois 35-13.

The teams met at this stage of the postseason in both 2008 and 2009, with State College winning both times to advance to the PIAA quarterfinals.
