The Lancers and Coyotes will kick off at 7 p.m., at Amphitheater High School. The winner advances to the Division II state championship game on Nov. 24 at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe.

In the other semifinal game, No. 3 Ironwood Ridge will try to beat No. 2 Tempe Marcos de Niza. That game is set for 7 p.m., at Gilbert Campo Verde High School.
