In what has been dubbed as "Game of the Year, Part II," Lakota West switched the script on St. Xavier. After a narrow loss to the Bombers in the 2020 regional final, the Firebirds were able to defeat St. X in Friday's regional semifinal.
Friday night also featured the rekindling of an old rivalry between Moeller and Princeton. The two schools have not played since 2008, and have not met in the postseason since 1993. Moeller won that game 18-15, and won again in another classic, 28-21.
In Division II, La Salle and Winton Woods met in what is a rematch of last year's regional championship. La Salle won last year's game 35-10, but Friday was Winton Woods' time to shine. The Warriors won 42-25, packing their bags for the regional final against Piqua.
Clinton-Massie defeated Wyoming in the Division IV regional semifinals, 42-14. They'll face Archbishop McNicholas, who beat Eaton 33-14.
