PIAA Semifinal Predictions

Class AAAA

La Salle College 24, North Penn 21 -- Physical tussle ends with La Salle earning third straight PIAA finals appearance.

North Allegheny 35, Central Dauphin 14 -- Not even a knee injury to star lineman Patrick Kugler can slow Tigers.

Class AAA

Archbishop Wood 42, Allentown Central Catholic 30 -- Wood is one of the few teams with enough defensive studs to slow ACC.

Bishop McDevitt 14, Montour 13 -- Still confused why Bishop McDevitt dropped to Class AAA.

Class AA

West Catholic 28, Lancaster Catholic 24 -- Tough schedule has West Catholic prepared for PIAA playoffs.

Aliquippa 32, Tyrone 20 -- The Golden Eagles should have a huge fan turnout at Mansion Park. But the Quips are in a different class than Tyrone's previous opponents.

Class A

Southern Columbia 45, Penns Manor 7 -- Don't see this one being close.

Clairton 42, Sharpsville 8 -- See above.
