ALTOONA – It’s another meeting at PHG Park between Hollidaysburg and Central Mountain for the District 6 5A championship game set for 7 p.m. in Altoona.
As the only two 5A teams in contention, the Wildcats hold the No. 1 seed with their 12-7 regular season record while the Golden Tigers are the No. 2 seed at 8-8 for the 2018 season.
Comparing head-to-head and common opponents, Hollidaysburg has the edge with a 9-2 win over CM back on April 28. The Golden Tigers also had wins over Mifflin County (8-1), Altoona (5-2) and a pair of wins over DuBois (14-6 and 8-5).

Both squads should be ready to play today with plenty of pride and tradition at stake.
