"It what continues to sound like a broken record, Washington's record-breaking running back rushed for more than 200 yards and helped lead his team to a big win Friday night.
But for once, Shai McKenzie's effort wasn't the biggest story.
After falling behind by two touchdowns in the first quarter, Washington used its defense to rally for a 33-17 win against Seton-LaSalle in a WPIAL Class AA quarterfinal at Canon-McMillan.
"We stuck together and continued to work hard," Washington coach Mike Bosnic said. "We knew we would have to face some adversity at some point. Well, the guys came through."
Washington (11-0), the No. 3 seed, moves on to the semifinals for the first time since 2001, when the Little Prexies won the championship. They'll face No. 2 South Fayette (11-0), a 35-21 winner against Beaver Falls."
