Wildcats Return To Playoff Football Friday Will Host Cornerstone Christian
LANETT- New year, new team, better results. The Springwood Football team had unfortunately experienced its share of losses over the past few years, and when the Wildcats announced over the summer that they were going to an eight-man format there were very few outside the program that was optimistic about the 2022 season.
However, that did not derail Springwood coach Joey Burch and his team as they took the area by storm and began compelling win after win, and are now winning the Wildcat way.
Springwood won the Region this year, the first time in 20 years, and will host a playoff game in front of their fans.
On Friday, Springwood will lock up with Cornerstone Christian, whom they lost to in the regular season 52-50.
"We played them in the regular season and we got up on them early and
they came roaring back. Hopefully, we have learned from the mistakes we made. We had a good week of practice, and we feel good going into this game", said Burch.
Springwood has had great senior leadership from Wildcats Ben Cooper, John Johnson, and Cayden Cook, something Burch will need to see more of as Springwood enters postseason play.
Springwood will host Cornerstone Christian on Friday from Wildcat Stadium at 7:00 pm EST. kick.
