The Sperry Pirates are back into the playoffs looking to defend their gold ball. They come into the playoffs this year with a perfect 10-0 record. They beat Beggs in week ten in a rematch of last year’s state title game. The Pirates appear to be just as strong as ever. But the road to a repeat for Sperry won’t come easy. They’re on the side of the bracket with some of the best teams in Class 2A. Every week they’ll get a major challenge.
TEAM TO BEAT
Metro Christian Patriots
Metro Christian is the team to beat in a class that has some real heavy hitters. However, the Patriots have been dominant on both sides of the ball and have shown no signs of weakness in any area of their game. They came into the season with plenty of high expectations. They were our team to beat back in August and they’ve only strengthened that position with an offense that is potent and a defense that is one of the best they’ve had.
MARQUEE FIRST ROUND GAME
Davis AT Millwood
In many other years, this game would be in the semifinal or for the state championship. But because of the way the brackets lay out, we get Davis and Millwood squaring off in the first round. Two of the more dominant Class 2A teams in this decade will face off with the winner moving on and the loser checking in their equipment. Just on reputation and tradition alone, this game is worth the price of admission to see these heavyweights go at it.
