Mites hit post-season running in youth football

The Halifax Youth Football League has finished the regular season, and now heads into the post-season. The Cobras of South Boston ended the regular season in first place, and get the bye for the opening round of play. 

The two seed Halifax took on the Volens Warriors to get things started. The Warriors started the game playing well, as they scored a touchdown in the opening quarter. The Tigers of Halifax had to make a move to deter the eager Warriors, and that’s just what they did, as they put up a whopping 32 unanswered points to take command of the game.

The three seed Cluster Springs 49ers had the task of facing the six seed Mecklenburg Knights. The Knights came to play, as they held the 49ers to no points in the opening quarter. 

The next period was all Cluster Springs as they rattled off 14 points, while holding the Knights to zero. The Knights managed to get a touchdown in the final period, but it was too late as the 49ers advance to the semis by winning 26-7 over the Mecklenburg Knights.

The final playoff game between the Scottsburg Bobcats and the Person County Stars was declared a forfeit, with Scottsburg advancing to face the Cobras, leaving Cluster Springs and Halifax to play each other in the other semi-final game.
