For the fifth year in a row the Saucon Valley Panthers (10-2) will square off against the Bethlehem Catholic Golden Hawks (9-3) in District XI postseason play. Last week, the #2 seeded Panthers advanced by defeating the #3 seeded Northwestern Lehigh Tigers while No. 1 Bethlehem Catholic thumped No. 4 Pottsville. This season’s District XI 4A championship showdown will take place at Bethlehem Area School District Stadium (Liberty High School) with a 7 p.m. kickoff. In addition to securing the 2018 District XI title, a victory will keep the hopes for a PIAA state championship alive for one of these teams while a loss will bring the 2018 season to a close for the other.
