(WLNS) – This is the 6 Sports Team of the Week night and with 15 of our local football teams competing in the playoffs we had a lot of teams to consider.
All are worthy but one with a proud football tradition that struggled last year gets the nod.
Congratulations Sexton Big Reds, 6 Sports Team of the Week.
Yes, the Big Reds are the team of the week after surviving a rollercoaster game against Williamston in last Friday’s pre-district.
Sexton jumped out to a 26-7 lead only for Williamston to rally late to close the gap to just 3 points.
Sexton held on to win 26-23 and travels to Lakewood this week.
Coach Dan Boggan says his team battled adversity last week well. “You know, I felt we were very efficient and effective in what we did in the first two and a half quarters offensively and then we hit a lull and made some some serious mistakes. So we’ll fix those things and the great thing is we identified them and that’s important. We’ll get those things fixed and we’ll be better for it this week.”
