Class A No. 1 East Hardy rode the wave over the No. 9 Tide to shore up a 42-14 victory in the state quarterfinals last Saturday in Baker earning a third consecutive berth in the semifinals.
“We had a great week of practice, the best week of practice we’ve had all year and that definitely translated to the game. They came out fired up and were excited. Those great weeks always correlate into great games,” East Hardy Coach Chad Williams remarked.
