The West Central high school 8-man football team has moved into the quarterfinals of the I8FA playoffs. The 2nd seeded Heat hosted 15th seeded South Beloit in Biggsville on Friday night, and made quick work of the visiting Sobos, getting out to a 64-16 lead at the half and ultimately winning by a score of 72-16. Halfback Kaiden Droste continued to shine with a 353 yard, 7 touchdown day, as he has now scored over 46 times this season.
The Heat’s next opponent is a familiar one for West Central, the 7th seeded Missles of Milledgeville high school. West Central defeated Milledgeville earlier this season on the road, 64-36. Head Coach Jason Kirby, appearing on the WRAM morning show, discussed what his squad needs to do to repeat that same success this weekend.
West Central’s 2nd round game vs Milledgeville will be played on Saturday afternoon at 1:00. You can hear all the action from the game starting with the 12:40 pregame, on Sunny 97.7 WMOI, or live on our website, radiomonmouth.com.
