The regular season was a success, but the real challenge begins now, in the postseason. This Friday Madison County takes on Union County in the first playoff game of the year. With four consecutive blowout wins, Madison County is looking for someone to give it a good challenge; hopefully Union County will step up.
Madison County kept its home record unblemished after another positive outing on its own turf. It took its contest against Rickards last week by a conclusive 34 - 12 score. Senior Derrick Staten jr deserves a lot of the credit as he earned two touchdowns and 157 yards rushing the ball.
Meanwhile, Taylor County delivered Union County a harsh 49 - 7 defeat two weeks ago. The loss came about despite a quality game from senior Charles Strong, who ran for 121 yards and also punched in one touchdown. This marked the 8th consecutive game in which Strong had 100+ rushing yards.
Union County's defeat dropped it to 6-4 while Madison County's win brought it to 10-0. Union County's offensive line will need to gear up for a tough test against a Madison County defense that got four sacks against Rickards last week. We'll see if it is up to the challenge.
