YONCALLA — Falls City’s football team defeated Yoncalla 66-6 on Friday.
Coach Laric Cook knows the matchup that really matters is this Friday, when the teams face again in the league playoff at Panther Stadium at 7 p.m.
“We talked about how we can’t be overconfident,” Cook said. “They’re going to have a little feel for us and we have a little feel for them. We have to tear them down brick-by-brick.”
The winner advances to the 1A state playoffs.
The loser stays home.
“In the past, we’ve been the underdog,” Cook said. “Now we’re the two seed. I told them to embrace it and go out there and play better than what we did last week and we’ll let the chips fall where they may.”
