The defending champion Bulldogs (8-2) rolled into their fifth state final in eight seasons by routing the Pirates (8-2) as sophomore quarterback Mike O’Connor threw a 30-yard touchdown pass to tight end Kenny Ferrare and also ran for a 6-yard score, while senior tailback Charlie Volker ran for 126 yards and a pair of 15-yard touchdowns in the win.

Senior defensive back Jackson Reid added a 60-yard interception return for a touchdown and Lucas Seckler and Seamus Walsh each had touchdown runs for the Bulldogs, who will play the winner of Saturday’s Delaware Valley-Roselle game in the finals on the weekend of Dec. 6-7 at a neutral site.
