The win advances Woodland Hills (14 - 0) to the PIAA championship game for the second straight year and third time since 1996.

The Wolverines will play Parkland (13 - 1) in the in the title game Dec. 7. Parkland features one-time Michigan running back recruit Austin Scott, who has rushed for over 3600 yards and 38 touchdowns -- now for his career, but this season!

Michigan recruiting fans may recall that Woodland Hills also made it to the finals last year led by their then quarterback -- and current Michigan frosh -- Steve Breaston, but lost when Breaston injured his leg on a slushy field and suffered hypothermia as well, and wasn't allowed by doctors to play the second half.

Ryan Mundy has already made his official visit to Michigan -- Nov. 2 for the PSU game. Mundy visited NC-State last weekend, but reportedly has his choices down to Michigan and Pitt. For more on Mundy, see the "Best Guess" list in the "Spotlight" section at the bottom of the main page.
