A-C Valley enters the contest at 9-3 overall and 5-0 in the KSAC South, while North Clarion is 9-2 overall and 3-0 in the KSAC North.

A year ago, North Clarion won all three meetings with the Lady Falcons, including a 52-49 victory in the District 9 Class 1A title game and a 54-49 win in the KSAC Championship Game. The She-Wolves also won the regular-season contest, 43-34, at North Clarion. That ran North Clarion’s win streak against A-C Valley to five games with the She-Wolves also taking a 57-50 decision in the 2017 District 9 Class 1A semifinals after the teams split their regular-season meetings that year.

A-C Valley was the last Clarion County/KSAC school to beat North Clarion handing the She-Wolves a 65-64 loss Jan. 20, 2017, at A-C Valley when Olivia Boocks hit a free throw with no time in the clock.
