North Schuylkill to Play for District XI Championship

North Schuylkill earned their spot in the District XI Class 3A Championship next week by defeating Palmerton Thursday evening.

The semifinal matchup was a rematch from Week 8 of the regular season and was rescheduled to Thursday due to Friday's weather forecast.

The second time around between these two teams started just like the first time with both teams going back and forth in the first quarter score for score.

It was the Blue Bombers second score that lit the fire under the Spartans and the rest of the game was all North Schuylkill.

The Spartan defense stepped up wouldn't let Palmerton even get within field goal range for the entire rest of the game.

North Schuylkill's offense would click on all fronts scoring through the air, on the ground, and a field goal.

The Spartans picked up the win 51-21 and will move on to face Northwestern Lehigh at Lehighton on Friday, November 18th, 2022, with kickoff at 7:05pm.

Tickets for the game will not be sold at the gate and need to be purchased online at
