Highlights: Damon Stern, Khary Mauras and Lonnie Walker IV combined for 40 points as Reading High unfurled a near-flawless performance in topping Wilson in a District 3-AAAA semifinal at Giant Center in Hershey.

The Red Knights (24-3) will go for their 20th straight win and first championship since 2010 in the title game Saturday at 1 at Giant Center. They'll meet the winner of tonight's Central York vs Spring Grove semifinal.

The second-seeded Red Knights were brilliant in beating the 14th-seeded Bulldogs (18-9) as they raced to a 20-5 lead after one quarter.

Reading didn't commit a foul in the first quarter or a turnover in the first half in rolling to a 37-19 lead. The Knights had 12 assists on 16 baskets in the first half.

Stern scored 10 of his team-high 15 points in the first half.

Mauras finished with 13 points and eight assists.

Walker left the game midway through the first quarter after coming down awkwardly following a dunk but he returned early in the second quarter and showed no ill effects. He finished with 12 points.

Christian Sload scored 15 points for the Bulldogs, who struggled mightily against Reading's constant fullcourt pressure.
