Central-Hickory set for DuBois

The PIAA has announced that Central’s Class AA football quarterfinal round game will be played on Saturday afternoon at Mansell Stadium in DuBois.

The Scarlet Dragons are taking on District 10 champion Hickory. Kickoff is at 1 p.m.

Tussey Mountain will travel to Hampton High School in Allison Park for its Class A quarterfinal round game with WPIAL champion North Catholic. That game will be Friday at 7 p.m.

Tussey is making its first-ever interdistrict playoff appearance. Central is in the PIAA tournament for the second time – the Dragons lost to Wilmington in the 2008 Class AA quarters.
