The No.2 Shadyside Tigers will play for the Division 7 Region 25 title next Saturday night after eliminating Caldwell 30-6 in New Philly.

The Tigers (12-0) will play No.1 Glouster Trimble (12-0) next Saturday at 7.

Junior running back Eric Howell ran for 157 yards and two scores on 33 carries. Classmate Austin Dorris added 100 yards on the ground with a touchdown. The 6-4 signal caller carried the ball 11 times.

Caldwell's one score was a Tanner Clark short, touchdown run. The Redskins finished the best season in school history at 9-3.

Trimble held off Steubenville Central 27-22 at Zanesville's Sulsberger Stadium. A late turnover, while the Crusaders were driving, was the final mistake which ended the season. The Tomcats ran out the clock.

Crusaders senior quarterback Brenton Colabella concluded his brilliant career with virtually every school passing record, and completed 9-of-20 passes for 231 yards and two touchdowns. Khalil Jones had a rushing and receiving touchdown for the Crusaders, who finished the season at 9-3.
