After Norristown Victory, PWHS Prepairs for Playoffs

Plymouth Whitemarsh High School headed to the PIAA District 1 Class AAAA playoffs.

sits in a prime spot for the PIAA District 1 Class AAAA playoffs as the No. 4 seed, hosting No. 13 seed Central Bucks South on Friday at 7 p.m.

This marks the first time the Colonials will be in the District 1 playoffs since 2005, and the first time they’ll be hosting a district playoff game in at least over 10 years.

The Colonials won the District 1 championship in 1997.

Plymouth Whitemarsh carries an 8-1 record into this postseason, its lone setback coming against No. 2-ranked Abington. Colonials’ coach Dan Chang said a primary concern is keeping South quarterback Matt Johns and running back Dan Brown in check.

“Offensively, we know they put up points like no one else,” Chang said. “They’re a running team, but they’ll hit up their quarterback on a big play. First, I think, we have to shut down their running game, then maybe capitalize on some turnovers. I think we’re playing well right now. We’ve had a great run, but it will important for us to know the game will be played at a different speed Friday night.”
