Region II-2A Division II Semifinal: Hamlin vs. Muenster

The No. 2 Piped Pipers (11-0) gave up double-digit points for only the third time this season in a 48-14 area-round win over Petrolia. Hamlin built a 34-0 lead at halftime.

It was the Pipers’ first full game without running back/linebacker Jackson Sepeda, who suffered an injury in the playoff opener. Hamlin coach Russell Lucas was pleased with how the players responded to adjusted roles in the senior Sepeda’s absence.

“(Sepeda) was there and very encouraging to all the kids,” Lucas said. “They know what he provides. We had talked about it, guys were going to have to increase their role a little bit to kind of make up for some of that lost production that we get from him. I felt like we did that.”
