It’s playoff football time here in Tennessee and the Quarterfinals kickoff tonight @ 7pm. We’d like to take a moment to highlight a few games from across the state. Let us start in Division I Class AAA with the Firebirds of Pearl Cohn out of Nashville, TN. They will be up against Fairview tonight, and the Firebirds ended the regular season with a record of 8-2 and they have won their last 3 games 146-0…just let that sink in for a minute, 146-0! Pearl Cohn’s opponent for tonight has a record of 9-3 but they are going to need their “big boy pants” on tonight, because Pearl Cohn has been on an absolute tear lately.
Now the other game to watch tonight is going to be the 12-0 Raleigh-Egypt Pharaohs(Memphis, TN) vs the 11-1 Chargers out of Covington, TN. Raleigh-Egypt has not won by less than 12 points since an early 1 point thriller against Arlington, so this should definitely be an interesting game. I personally know how good the Chargers are this year, just as they have been in years past. The Crockett Co. Cavaliers will have a grudge match against the Haywood Tomcats. Haywood beat the brakes off of Crockett earlier this season, but this is a new day and I’m sure the Cavs are salty about their performance and would love nothing but to send the Tomcats home with an L. Also we cannot forget about the Maplewood Panthers that are trying to add to the hardware their basketball program captured earlier this year.
And for Class 6A we will start with the 10-2 Whitehaven Tigers taking on the White Station Spartans. White Station is a team with a losing record for the year but seem to have caught fire in recent weeks, with wins in 4 straight games, which would include last week over a then undefeated Germantown squad (29-28) and they knocked off Arlington as well (17-14), so I am sure they will not be intimidated by Whitehaven. Lastly i would like to highlight what I believe is going to be the game of the week and that is the Cane Ridge Ravens vs the Ravenwood Raptors. Both programs are ranked in the top 15 in the state. Tonight is going to be a very interesting night across this state for football.
