Jays set to clash with rival Hickman for playoff berth
Thursday, October 28, 2010
It’s Jefferson City vs. Hickman. It’s the 106th meeting. And more importantly, it’s winner take all.
“This is why you play the game,” Jefferson City coach Ted LePage said. “It’s Hickman, the last game and if you win, you’re in. “How much more exciting could that be?”
Jefferson City (5-4, 1-1 District 6) has won the last four games against Hickman and has cut the Kewpies overall lead in the 105-year rivalry to one game. Hickman (6-3, 1-1) leads the series 51-50-4. The Jays only tied it once and that was in 1919 went it stood at 3-3-3. There’s a lot at stake when the two teams clash Friday night in the Class 6 District 6 finale at Adkins Stadium.
Arkansas recruit Kody Walker, who missed the last three weeks with a foot injury, returns for the Jays.
