After last Friday’s loss to the Beavers, even Hadenfeldt’s not quite sure who will come out on top in the battle to be the top team in 1A, District 6.
“You know how good Regina is going in, but Wilton’s right there with them,” Hadenfeldt said. “In some ways Wilton might even be better suited to beat Regina. They have a dual threat with the running game and the passing of (quarterback Tyler) Hetzler. You just have to pick your poison in a lot of ways.”
After two of the toughest weeks any team in the state has had to go through, the Comets will look to bounce back and hopefully show that the Regals and Beavers made Cardinal a better team in the wake of facing those two juggernauts. Cardinal (1-5, 0-3) heads to Wapello (2-4, 0-3) trying to snap a four-game losing streak and finish the season in strong fashion.
“We have a bunch of competitors and we have three weeks left in our season. It’s up to our guys to decide how they want to end things this year,” Hadenfeldt said. “This is the opportunity for our guys to show that pride and finish the season out strongly. We’ve been right there for the most part all year and our guys are still working hard looking for the answers going into the last three weeks.”
Of course, in 1A, District 6 the drama isn’t limited to the top of the standings. As last Friday night proved, drama can be found all around this district on any given night.
A matchup of two area teams will be dripping with drama as postseason hopes are on the line tonight in Sigourney. The S-K Savage Cobras face almost "must-win" circumstances when they play host to Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont as both teams are coming off games that were not decided until the final plays of the night.
