FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – The Snider football team is one win away from a second straight trip to the 5A state title game with the Westfield Shamrocks standing in the way.

The Panthers will play at Westfield on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. in 5A semi-state action.

These two programs have formed a budding rivalry. The Panthers went on the road to defeat Westfield 32-24 in regional action during the 2014 season while Westfield topped the Panthers at Spuller Stadium 36-7 at regionals in 2013.

Snider is coming off a 31-7 win over Mishawaka last Friday while the Shamrocks defeated Kokomo 45-7.

WANE-TV will be live at 6 p.m. in Westfield on Friday to preview the big game. Be sure to tune into the Highlight Zone Friday night at 11:10 for the area’s longest-running and most-watched sports show!
