The WPIAL champion Spartans (20-3), in the PIAA semifinals for a 10th time, will look to defeat the District 3 champion Eagles (19-5) and advance to the Class 6A title game, which is set for 4 p.m Thursday at Penn State.
The Spartans, who have one senior in their starting lineup, have shut out both opponents so far in the state tournament, including Downingtown East, 2-0, in Thursday’s quarterfinals in Mechanicsburg.
Hempfield last played in the semifinals in 2019 and lost to Central Dauphin, 4-1, at St. Francis (Pa.).
The Spartans have four state titles, the last coming in 2018.
