Smyrna and Sussex Central take on one another this Friday at 7:00 PM on Smyrna's home turf. It should turn out to be a fierce showdown as Smyrna is ranked 3rd in the state and Sussex Central is ranked 9th.
Smyrna won two weeks ago against Cape Henlopen 54 - 21, and it decided to stick to that point total again. Smyrna scooted by Caesar Rodney last week with a score of 54 - 37. Smyrna had two big standouts, as senior William Knight earned two touchdowns and 164 yards rushing the ball, while junior Stephen Whaley ran for 97 yards and also punched in two touchdowns. This marked the 4th consecutive game in which Knight had 100+ rushing yards. Meanwhile, Sussex Central came out on top against Sussex Tech last week with a 14 - 6 win.
Their wins bumped Sussex Central to 5-0 and Smyrna to 3-2. Sussex Central's offensive line will need to gear up for a tough test against a Smyrna defense that got eight sacks against Caesar Rodney last week. We'll see if it is up to the challenge.
