School: Lancaster

Record: 11-0

Last semifinal appearance: Never

Four players to watch: Ryan Mansell, Joe Andreessen, Max Giordano, Andrew Hersey

The Lancaster football team will do something for the first time in program history Saturday night: play in the Class AA state semifinals.

The Legends have never made it this far in the football playoffs. Two times in the past, they've made it to Regionals but lost to their opponent from Rochester.

After a 9-0 win over Aquinas in this year's Regional final, the Legends are headed to Binghamton, NY to take on Cicero-North Syracuse.

Lancaster coach Eric Rupp has been to the state semifinals before as a player but is going there for the first time as a head coach.

Lancaster and Cicero-North Syracuse kick off Saturday night.
