Dome Bound!

Tigers advance to state semifinals

Following incredible last-minute victory over Savannah Country Day School (see story on page 8A), the Washington Wilkes Tigers will enter the semifinal round of the state football playoffs to be played in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta this weekend. Fans at last Friday’s game saw the Tigers explode with three touchdowns in the last two-and-a-half minutes of play after a full game of magnificent defensive muscle flexing. A win this Saturday over the Bowdon Red Devils would propel the Tigers into the state championship game which could possibly be a rematch with their arch rivals, the Lincoln County Red Devils. Support from a large dedicated crowd contributed to last week’s win and the team hopes to see equal support Saturday in the Dome.
