ST. JOE'S PREP 37, NESHAMINY 21
With Neshaminy running the ball at will and on the brink of a go-ahead score in Saturday's PIAA Class AAAA state semifinal, several St. Joseph's Prep assistant coaches threw out suggestions to Gabe Infante on how to stop the bleeding.
"I turned to them and said, 'Guys, stop! At this point, players have to make plays,' " the Hawks boss said.
The PIAA has postponed all four of Friday's state football playoff games, including Archbishop Wood vs. Bewick, due to the current weather conditions and threat of continued rain.
The Class AAA semifinal between Archbishop Wood (11-2) and Berwick (14-0) is now scheduled for 5 p.m. Saturday at J. Birney Crum Stadium in Allentown.
Here are the other semifinal playoffs rescheduled for Saturday due to the weather:
