The Palisades football team will play for the District 11 AA championship Friday night in Catasauqua.

The Palisades football team will play for a District 11 championship in just over 48 hours. The Pirates earned that shot at a title by beating top seed Pine Grove last week on the road. Their challenge this week is probably even tougher than that one. The Pirates travel to Catasauqua to face one of the area's best and most explosive football teams. It's a tall order, and the Pirates are certainly the underdog. But, they believe they can win, and they've learned from others that have beaten Catty, and their own experiences, that they have to make it a physical, slow, ugly so to speak, football game to win.
