It will be a rematch Friday in eight-man Division II action between No. 3 Hanover, 8-1, and No. 4 Frankfort, 8-1.

The HHS Wildcats outscored the FHS Wildcats 30-6 in the second half to pull away. Frankfort advanced to the regional round with a 54-8 win at Rock Hills last Thursday. That night Hanover blanked Pike Valley 48-0.
