The Thayer Bobcats will continue their district tournament play Friday, October 27, at Sarcoxie High School to take on the Bears, who are the number two seed in the Class 1 District 2. Sarcoxie has a record of 9-1, with their only loss coming to the number one seed in the district, Pierce City. The winner of this game will go to the district championship, and will play what is likely to be Pierce City.

Thayer is coming off of a first round rout over the Miller Cardinals, with the score of that game being 49-15. The Bobcats controlled the game on both sides of the ball, and put on a show for the home crowd. Thayer stifled the Cardinals on defense, and Miller could not stop Thayer’s running game the whole night.

Sarcoxie defeated Cabool in their first round game by a score of 45-22. The game was held at Sarcoxie High School, and with that win, it set them up against the defending district champs, the Thayer Bobcats. Sarcoxie will be hosting Thayer in the second round, as they are the number two seed over Thayer’s number three seed. Last year, Thayer never played Sarcoxie, as Sarcoxie went out too early in district play for the two to match up.

On the other side of the bracket, Ash Grove beat Marionville 39-14, and Pierce City beat Pleasant Hope 53-0. This sets up an Ash Grove-Pierce City game, where the winner will be in the district championship. Pierce City is favored to win this game, but Ash Grove is a team who went to the championship last year and lost a close game to Thayer 6-0. Both semi-final matchups look to be close.

Thayer will be looking to continue their tough defense like they have the whole year in this very important semi-final game against Sarcoxie. Sarcoxie’s star quarterback, Chris Comerford, has led the team the whole year, and Thayer will have to stop him in order to get the win. Priority must be on containing Comerford, and if they can, Thayer will have a great chance of getting the win. This is not the first time Thayer has faced a great quarterback, as they have seen  Mountain Grove’s Carter Otwell and Ava’s Caleb Johnson, so Thayer has the experience they need in order to stop Comerford and the Sarcoxie Bears.

This should be a great game to watch, so head to Sarcoxie on the 27th to see the two teams battle it out to keep going in the playoffs. Loser goes home, so the stakes are very high. The two teams will be very competitive, so it should be very exciting to see who can come out with the victory and the chance for a district championship title.
