ERIE - Here are the scoring plays (which were updated by Ben Oviatt from the game) of Cathedral Prep's 54-12 win over Warren on Friday at Veterans Stadium in Erie.
Prep, the top-ranked team in the state, is 11-0 and advances to next weekend's D-10 final against General McLane (a 46-42 winner over Slippery Rock). Warren's season ends at 9-3. Warren defeated Conneaut in the quarterfinals last week and had last won a playoff game in 2002. Quarterback Austin Jerman was hit hard all game, including leaving for a short stretch, but again showed his toughness. He's a senior and will graduate as Warren all-time leading passer at over 4,000 career yards.
