Seton Catholic (7-3) returns to the playoffs in coach Mike Chiurco’s first season but it must make a long journey across the Valley for its opening-round playoff game.

The Sentinels opened the season with four straight wins before hitting the meat of their schedule and splitting their final six games, but they hung on and earned the playoff bid.

Seton was not afraid to put the ball in the air, passing for 211 yards and 20 touchdowns. Vincent Wallace, a senior quarterback, threw for 1,934 yards. He was aided by a rushing game that accounted 5.6 yards a carry. Wallace rushed for 542 yards but the team rushing leader was Keyshon Upchurch (638).


Peoria (9-1) was runner up in the 4A West but comes into the playoffs on a five-game streak.

It has a defense that made 20 sacks and a powerful rushing attack that average 316 yards a game.
