State Quarter: Hickory-Tyrone, 11/29

2014 PIAA Class AA State Quarterfinals
Saturday, November 29, 2014 in Dubois at 1 pm
Hickory (10-2) vs. Tyrone (12-1)

Noteworthy: Coach Jason Wilson’s group dropped their week seven contest to Class AAA Clearfield on October 10, 26-14. Besides that loss to the Bison, the Golden Eagles have been perfect. Tyrone’s defense has held the opposition to single digits in six games this season and only three have been able to score above 20 points…Hickory started the campaign by not allowing any of their first three opponents to score a single point. However, in weeks five and six, the Hornets dropped back to back games to Slippery Rock (14-7) and Greenville (13-10) respectively. Hickory has not lost since and they’ve actually knocked off both the Rockets (35-27) and the Trojans (12-7) in successive weeks to win their fourth district crown in a row.
