After two memorable wins Friday, both the Bellefonte and State College football teams are moving on to the first round of the PIAA state playoffs — and the sites and times are set.
The Red Raiders (10-2) will take on District 4 champ Selinsgrove (10-2) at 1 p.m. Saturday at Altoona Area High School in a Class 4A matchup, while the Little Lions (9-2) will face District 2’s Delaware Valley (12-0) at 7 p.m. Friday at Danville High School in a Class 6A contest.
The winner of Bellefonte’s game will take on the winner Friday between Pottsgrove-Bethlehem Catholic. The rest of State College’s Class 6A bracket is still to be determined.
The Little Lions are making their fourth straight PIAA playoff appearance after crushing Erie 48-12 in a subregional game. Bellefonte is coming off its first district title since 1999 after defeating Johnstown 34-12.
