The Cathedral Prep Ramblers football team left Wednesday morning for Hershey to compete in the state championship for the fourth year in a row.

The team boarded the bus just after 9 a.m. after a sendoff at the school.

The Ramblers will face a familiar opponent - Philadelphia's Imhotep Charter - at Hershey Park Stadium with hopes of scoring the team's third straight title.

The game will be played at 7 p.m. Thursday. It will be televised on the Pennsylvania Cable Network (PCN).

During the last four playoff games, Prep has outscored its opponents 197-46.

For this year's senior class, it has been an impressive high school career. Members have ended their season in Hershey in the state final each year.
