Worth County And Drexel Advance To 8-Man Championship Football Game

Worth County and Drexel both advanced into the MSHSAA 8-man Championship Football Game next Thursday with semi-final wins on the road Friday.

Worth County was first. The Tigers won their first road game in nearly two months as they beat North Shelby 36-34 in the afternoon game on Friday. Worth County made a bid to take control of their game in the second quarter when they outscored the Raiders 22-8 in the second quarter thanks to long runs by both Aydan Gladstone and Alex Rinehart. Worth County still led 30-20 in the 3rd quarter and were going in when North Shelby swung the game with a fumble recovery and then a 65 yard pass play. Worth County would answer with a 4th down pass play themselves, but North Shelby countered one more time to make it 36-34 with still half of the 4th quarter to play. Worth County gave the ball up with a fumble to North Shelby in North Shelby territory, but held the Raiders to a 4-and-out in their own territory, and then ran out the clock.

Worth County Head Coach Jon Adwell.

 

Worth County will take their 13-0 record to Faurot Field against the 12-0 Drexel Bobcats. Drexel defeated King City 56-28 at Wehrli Field at King City in the evening semi final game. Junior quarterback Jacob Coffey ran over 380 yards and 6 touchdowns. Drexel’s defense held King City’s potent running game to just over 50 total yards. Bobcat Head Coach Phillip Dean.

 

Drexel moves to 12-0 on the season with the victory.

Drexel and Worth County will play Thursday evening at 7pm in Columbia for the 8 man championship game.
