Back in January, Chartiers Valley met Oakland Catholic in what some might have considered just another game between two non-section opponents.
That's not how Colts' coach Dan Slain regarded it.
"[Oakland Catholic] went up 14-1 on us, and we lost 41-33," he said. "I don't know if we were returning favors, but that's the last time we've been beaten this season. There's no quit in this team."
That was most evident as the Colts rallied from a 26-19 halftime deficit and earned a 52-36 victory over the Eagles to improve to 19-7 overall. The Colts meet Hickory, the fourth-place team from District 10.
