When: 7 tonight; admission: $6


Palm Harbor University (19-2-0) at Wharton (15-9-0): This is a matchup between teams on a roll. The two-time defending state champion Hurricanes have not lost since mid December. After starting 4-9, the Wildcats have won 11 straight, including surviving penalty kicks against St. Petersburg last week.


East Lake (13-5-2) at Seminole (20-2-2): These teams are familiar with one another as district rivals and are meeting for the second straight season in the region finals. The Warhawks, who have outscored their past three opponents a combined 20-0, won all three games against the Eagles this season.


Tampa Catholic (6-11-1) at St. Petersburg Catholic (10-11-0): One of the more improbable matchups in the region tournament between teams that got hot at the right time. The Barons upset nationally ranked Clearwater Central Catholic to get to the postseason and have continued their roll in the district final and region quarterfinal.
