The game everyone has been looking forward to all season is finally upon us. Fulton will host Greeneville for the quarterfinals. Fulton has annihilated every single opponent so far this season. However, they will finally get a true challenge when Greeneville makes their way tomorrow night. Many believe, even though Fulton has shown out all season, that Greeneville has a great shot of knocking Fulton out of the running for the state championship. After tomorrow night there is not even a need for a championship game. This game will be one not anyone will want to miss. After Fulton’s game last week against Sullivan South it is very likely that Greeneville can give them a run for their money.
Anderson County will be hosting West for the quarterfinals. Both teams are going into this game with even 11-1 records. However, if Anderson County had played Maryville they would have another loss on their record. West has had to face more challenges such as Maryville during their regular season. Anderson County will be in for a wake-up call tomorrow night as they face the dynamic playmakers on West’s roster. The home field advantage will be about the only aspect going in the Maverick’s favor. They will put up a fight against West, but tomorrow night it will be all Rebels.
Grace Christian has been electric this season. Last year this is the point that ended their season when they faced Boyd Buchanan in the quarterfinals. This year they will host another Chattanooga team, Silverdale Academy, for the third round of the playoffs. Grace is undefeated and looking strong going into this round. Silverdale has lost only one game this season to Boyd Buchanan which the Buccaneers have not had a strong season this year as they finished up 4-7. Tomorrow night is not looking too great for the Seahawks as they will be face the end of their season.
Sevier County’s only loss this season came from Maryville eight weeks ago. The Smoky Bears will have to face the Rebels again this week for the quarterfinals at Maryville. Last time when Sevier suffered their one loss, they suffered badly as the final was 55-6. However, much time has passed and this team has definitely grown all around. Last week they were even able to shutdown the electric offense of Science Hill and secure a win to advance to this week. The Smoky Bears have a huge challenge in front of them as they travel to the number one team, and though it is highly unlikely, they have the potential to give Maryville a good game.
Another blowout from the regular season was CAK at Alcoa. The Tornadoes wrapped up and spun the Warriors in a 51-17 final. However, since that game CAK has not lost. CAK is going to have a tough match this week as their last visit to Alcoa was only five weeks ago, so they will have to have a strong mindset entering this game. In all reality though, Alcoa should breeze through this one again.
Only one win separating these two teams as Coalfield hosts Midway tomorrow night. The last meeting that these teams had was in 2008 when Midway beat the Yellow Jackets 37-0. Tomorrow night for the quarterfinals will be a lot closer, but is still looking good for Midway five years later.
Catholic will take a visit to Hixson for the quarterfinals. Both teams stand at 9-3, but tomorrow night is looking good for Hixson as their defense has proven to stand strong. However, this will be a battle to the end as not much differentiates between these two teams.
Webb will face their toughest game of the season on the road tomorrow at Evangelical Christian School in Memphis, TN. ECS is currently undefeated and an offensive powerhouse. The Spartans will have their work cut-out for them. However, ECS has not faced the difficulty of teams that Webb has. This will be a great display on both sides of the ball of great talent.
