The victory gives the Hillers a 4-0 record in the subsection and sets up a Jan. 15 showdown with four-time WPIAL champion Canon-McMillan. The Big Macs improved to 4-0 with a 62-12 win at Chartiers Valley.

"It's been a while since Trinity and Canon-McMillan met for first place in the section," Trinity coach Mark Powell said. "Canon-Mac is obviously the team to beat in the section and the WPIAL, but we're looking forward to the challenge of traveling to Canonsburg next Wednesday."
