The Abingdon-Avon high school football team dropped to 1-6 overall, and 0-6 in conference play this weekend, after a road loss to Princeville on Friday night. The Tornadoes fell behind early to their Lincoln Trail rival Princes, and could not recover, ultimately falling by a score of 42-0. The loss puts a young A-Town squad out of contention for an IHSA playoff berth. Last year, the senior-laden Tornadoes went (10-2) and made a quarterfinal appearance before finally losing to the Ridgeview/Lexington co-op 51-12.
Despite the rough season, Head Coach Rick Quinn, says the team still has the motivation to play hard in their final two games.
The Tornadoes next game will be a big home match up with long-time rival Knoxville, and then they will finish the season at United. For the full interview with Coach Quinn, visit the Sports Podcast section of our website, radiomonmouth.com.
