Monessen's Clintell Gillaspie, who rushed 20 times for 112 yards, had touchdown runs of 3 and 23 yards. He also caught a 20-yard touchdown pass from Chavas Rawlins, who completed 7 of 14 passes for 129 yards. Monessen, which had 337 yards in total offense, finished 9-2.

Quarterback Lenny Williams rushed for two touchdowns and passed for two more as the No. 2 Vikings raced to a 14-2 halftime lead and never looked back in defeating the No. 10 Scotties in a quarterfinal game at Mars.

Williams, who rushed 16 times for 156 yards, had scoring runs of 15 and 1 yards.

He also connected with Brendan Blair and Javelle Kirkland on scoring passes of 17 and 16 yards.

Sto-Rox (10-1) outgained Union (7-4), 408 yards to 238.
