D9 Class 2A champion Ridgway faces WPIAL champion Our Lady of Sacred Heart Saturday at Oil City starting at 2:30 p.m.

The Elkers (26-3) advanced with a 38-36 win over Wilmington Wednesday night. OLSH (24-2) routed District 10 third-place Lakeview, 77-36.

It’s the third straight trip to the quarterfinals for OLSH, which lost in last year’s state final to Constitution. Ridgway’s previous quarterfinal appearances came in 2017 and 2012 when the Elkers reached the semifinals against eventual runner-up Lincoln Park in Class 1A.
