Biggersville is set to take on Lumberton for a 1A football state championship and you can watch all of the action live.
Kickoff is set for 3 pm.
So we ask ourselves one of the biggest questions of the weekend. Who is David and who is Goliath? Well, depends on which way you look at it.
The Panthers will always be a contender down south. Not only a contender, a favorite in some instances. This year, it’s hard to mention this team without talking about Robert Henry. He led this team here for the last two years with his elite athleticism. Unfortunately for them, they were the victim of the Nanih Waiya machine that had a massive winning streak snapped last week by… their opponent.
One can also make the case that the upstart Biggersville Lions can be considered Goliath as well. Look at the score differential, 540-77. Look who they defeated last week, the back-to-back defending 1A champs on a 25 game winning streak. Look at their roster, full of underclassmen. The only problem here, this is their first time on this stage, and what better beginning for them than one of 1A’s most elite programs.
