The red-hot Helias Crusaders have run their winning streak to 14 games, and if they can push it to 15, they'll earn themselves a spot in the Class 4 Final Four.

To do that, Helias will have to get past a 5 p.m. quarterfinal contest today at Willard. The Crusaders bring a mark of 22-3 into the game, while the Tigers are 21-9 on the season.

Helias moved into the quarterfinals with a 9-3 win over Rock Bridge on Tuesday, the latest in a string of late-season victories.

"These guys are playing well," Helias coach Chris Wyrick said.
