Boys Varsity Football · Patriots Secure a Playoff Bid With a Win Over Southside!

The Patriots win a decisive victory over Southside Friday night defeating the Tigers 57-32! With this win they punched their way into the playoffs. Due to the Covid-related shortened season only the top 2 teams in each region will move on to the playoffs this year. Both Powdersville and Southside were fighting for the spot, but the Patriots won the right to move on.

In the first half, the teams battled back and forth ending it with a 20-20 tie. But, the Patriots came out fighting in the second half and forced when Will Goforth forced a fumble and Ryan Hendricks scooped it up for a quick second half touchdown. The Patriots were hard to stop from that point on and finished the game strong.

The Patriots will travel to JL Mann this Friday to continue their season with a non-region match up.
