Monday

Hockey: Knoch remains alive for a spot in the PIHL Division II playoffs, but the Knights need a victory over Connellsville in their regular-season finale. A Knoch win would lift the Knights into a tie for the final playoff spot with Trinity, and the teams then would play a play-in game to determine which one would advance to the postseason and a first-round game against Burrell.

Wednesday

Boys basketball: Highlands has a chance to advance to the WPIAL championship game for the second time in four seasons, as the Golden Rams take on No. 1 New Castle in the Class 4A semifinals at 8 p.m. at North Allegheny.
