Playoff semifinals

Martinsburg carries its hopes for yet another state football championship into the semifinals Friday, hosting undefeated Bridgeport. 

Martinsburg (11-1) is seeded 2nd in Class AAA and Bridgeport (12-0) is 3rd. The winner faces either No. 1 Huntington (12-0) or No. 5 Cabell Midland (11-1) for the title. 

The Bulldogs are the only remaining regional team in the playoffs.

Bridgeport knocked off Jefferson 74-49 last Friday in Class AAA. Poca took out Frankfort 56-49 in Class AA and No. 6 Williamson upset No. 3 East Hardy 44-24 in Class A.
