CLARION â€“ Of Johnsonburg's 30 wins this season, Tuesday's was the sweetest one of all.
So sweet, in fact, that the Rams earned a trip to Hershey and the school's first appearance in a PIAA championship game.
Johnsonburg advanced to the PIAA Class A championship game with a 59-53 win over Lincoln Park at Clarion University in the PIAA semifinal round held Tuesday night.
Johnsonburg coach Bill Shuey said the Rams believed they could win even with Lincoln Park having four Division I recruits and reaching the state final the last two seasons.

A "citizen appeal" will delay an attempt by the Kane Borough Sewer Authority to re-finance a loan.
The authority in October agreed to re-finance the balance of $5.9 million from a 1994 loan to rebuild the borough's two sewage treatment plants.
By taking advantage of lower interest rates and a shorter term, the authority expects to save at least $1.2 million in interest fees through 2034.
