After defeating top-seeded O’Bryant, 20-6, in the MIAA Division 6 North semifinals Friday night, fourth-seeded Latin Academy is set to continue its state run against St. Clement this Saturday at Dilboy Field in Somerville at 6 p.m.

And fortunately for Latin Academy, it appears that star quarterback Kyle Dance will be good to go.

Dance suffered a slight leg injury against O’Bryant during a first-quarter touchdown run and sat for the rest of the game. According to coach Rocco Zizzi, Dance has been taking his recovery one step at a time.

“He says he’s been getting better,” Zizzi said. “That’s all I really know so far. It was a slight pulled muscle in his leg on his second touchdown run, so he should be good to go on Saturday. But we’ll see what happens.”

Latin Academy will play a second-seeded St. Clement team that beat Cathedral, 28-8, and a Super Bowl berth will be on the line. The winner will head to Gillette Stadium in Foxborough Dec. 7.
