The Vineland High School football team got one of its biggest wins in school history last Friday.

This Friday, the Fighting Clan is hoping for one of the biggest upsets in school history.

Fourth-seeded Vineland (4-5) will play at top-seeded Williamstown (10-0) in a South Jersey Group V semifinal 7 p.m. Saturday. Williamstown is No. 1 in The Press Elite 11 ranking.

Vineland: Tyreem Powell, WR/DB/QB; Isaiah Blakely, RB/DB; Nahzir Broome, RB/LB; Phil Blackwell, LB; Anthony Arthur, RB; Jonathan Toney, RB/DB; Anthony Reyes, TE/DE.
