Here is a closer look at the final:
Quick fact. Ron Cohen, Washington's 27th-year coach, has won 11 league championships.
Passing fancy. In last month's win over the Eagles, DiGiorgio, a junior lefthander, connected on 22 of 26 passes for 296 yards and two touchdowns. On the winning drive, he was 8 for 8 for 87 yards.
Back in action. One of Washington's defensive leaders is 6-foot-3, 265-pound junior end Justin Moody, who sat out the loss to Frankford with a one-game suspension for his involvement in a skirmish the previous week vs. Northeast.
Questionable. Frankford's Kashif Townsend, an outside linebacker, is questionable after suffering a fractured hand in a 37-12 semifinal romp over Central. Coaches were trying to find padding to cover his cast.
Supporting role. While tailback Hakeem Sillman (1,535 rushing yards, 25 TDs) is Washington's catalyst on offense, the Eagles also can turn to 5-4, 150-pound sophomore Ken Everage.
Mainstays. Frankford's defense has been headed by hard-charging end Kasheim Poland, tackle Devon Moore, middle linebacker Geoffrey Phillippe, and cornerback/safety Marquan Scott.
Pick: If the Pioneers can avoid turnovers, they should leave with the first-place hardware. The difference is DiGiorgio's ever-present poise. Frankford, 28-20.
