Pius X preparing for state playoff showdown with Southern Columbia

Pius X set for state playoff showdown vs. Southern Columbia

The Pius X Royals are preparing for a PIAA state quarterfinal showdown with perennial powerhouse Southern Columbia on Friday.

The Royals and Tigers will square off at 7pm Friday night at Nazareth's Andrew S. Leh Stadium, with the winner moving on to the Class A state semifinals.

Phil Stambaugh, once a record-setting quarterback at Pius, has brought the Royals back to being one of the premiere single-A programs in the state.

Stambaugh also knows that facing the second-ranked team in the state in Class A will present the toughest test yet for his young Royals.
