Preview: Fredonia battles Council Grove in State Playoffs

The Fredonia regular season was strong enough to ensure a trip to the postseason, and the Yellow Jackets will make the trip to Council Grove and battle the Braves on Friday night. Fredonia comes in with a 4-4 record, and Council Grove has a 6=2 record.


The Yellow Jackets were able to snap a three game losing skid in Week 8, defeating Eureka 16-8 on the road. Although a win was most important, Fredonia coach Marc Savty knows his team must find ways to finish drives and not leave points on the field if they wish to have playoff success.


Council Grove is coming off of a tough loss in Week 8, but Savty knows this team has dynamic weapons and are well coached. The Braves' defense is the biggest strength, allowing 6 points or fewer in five games this season, including four shutouts.


Friday's game is at 7pm in Council Grove, and a recap will be posted to the website following the game.
