District 6 has moved its Class A semifinal game between the 5th-seeded United Lions and top seed Northern Cambria at Penns Manor’s Pat Corrigan Field from Friday to Saturday.
The two teams met in the first week of the season and the Colts took that one, 43-14. Northern Cambria led 36-0 after three quarters of as three players ran for over 100 yards and two touchdowns each. Ben Vasil rushed for 173 yards on only seven carries. Logan Onkst ran for 143, and quarterback Mark Marino had 113 yards on the ground. Onkst is out for the season with an injury suffered against Ligonier Valley, so Vasil has shouldered much more of the load in recent weeks.
Northern Cambria won a thriller against Saltsburg, 36-34 last week.
United is led by the two-man rushing combo or running back Hunter Cameron and quarterback Kyle Silk. The Lions enter the game hurting with some key injuries, especially after a tough game against Portage last week. They beat the Mustangs, 28-22, on a fourth-quarter, 15-play drive, with Silk scoring from 10 yards out.
