"Franklin Regional had a rough outing last year in its first Pennsylvania Cup championship game.
Now the Panthers have a rare opportunity for a do-over.
"We're a different team," Franklin Regional coach Brian Kurtz said. "We've been there once and I think they're more prepared mentally and I think our speed up front is different this year. We're excited about the matchup."
Franklin Regional (20-1-0), which defeated Indiana Tuesday to win its second consecutive Class 1A Penguins Cup title, will get a rematch against three-time defending state champion West Chester Bayard Rustin (18-2-2) at noon Saturday at the RMU Island Sports Center. The two teams also played last year and the Golden Knights rolled over the Panthers, 6-0, at Pegula Ice Arena in University Park."
