Two familiar foes clashed in the semifinal round of the WPIAL Division II boys' lacrosse playoffs.

Seton-La Salle, the No. 1 seed, rallied past Baldwin, 8-3, to advance to the WPIAL Division II championship game to be held tonight, Thursday, at Baldwin Stadium.

The Rebels (14-1) trailed at halftime, 3-2, but accounted for six unanswered goals in the second half as junior goalkeeper Kevin Hudson sparkled in the net for the winning side.

Seton-La Salle was led offensively by sophomore attacker Conor Quinlan's three goals, along with two goals apiece by senior attacker Matt McGervey and junior attacker Colin Bashaw.

Nick Sywyj rounded out the Rebels' scoring with one goal.

For Baldwin (13-6), senior midfielder Kaleb Reckley, junior attacker Wes Richards and junior attacker Robert Ross netted one goal apiece.

Seton-La Salle and Baldwin had met previously in March, with the Rebels registering a 13-6 victory en route to an 11-0 start this season.

Following that game, Seton-La Salle won eight consecutive decisions before suffering its only regular-season loss to Bethel Park by a 10-9 score.

The Rebels rebounded with a 16-5 win at Moon, then routed Latrobe in the first round of the WPIAL playoffs, 17-5.

After the regular-season loss to Seton-La Salle, Baldwin edged Moon, 12-11, and went on to win seven of its next 10 games — including a 13-6 decision against Mars in the WPIAL opening round.
