    In a Division I semifinal, Sussex Central will visit unbeaten Dover on Saturday, Nov. 24, at 7:30 p.m. for a chance to avenge its only loss this season.

    In the other two games, defending Division I state champion Newark hosts William Penn on Friday at 7 p.m. and Middletown hosts St. Elizabeth in a Division II semifinal on Saturday at 7.

    Delmar, which clinched its sixth Henlopen Conference Southern Division title in the past seven years with a 35-7 victory over Woodbridge last Friday, takes on the Blue Hen Conference Flight B runnerup Silver Eagles.

    Central and Dover will revisit their recent rivalry in a rematch of the season's most exciting game, a 34-32 win by Dover on Oct. 19. The game is also a rematch of the teams' first round state tournament contest last season, won by Sussex Central, 33-3.

    Dover won the Henlopen Conference Northern Division title with a 10-0 record, while Central went 9-1.

    Last year, Central won the regular season and tournament semifinal meetings between the two teams on the way to a championship game appearance against Newark.
