To start the day, sixteen teams remained in the playoffs for the 5A classification, and by the end of the night that number will trimmed down to eight. On this particular night, DP set up shop at TL Hanna High School to watch them take on the Northwestern Trojans. In order for Northwestern to advance, they will have to defeat the Jackets in consecutive games. Northwestern is battle tested and will be on a mission to secure the wins needed night to defend their state crown. On Friday night, TL Hanna defeated the Trojans 2-1, behind a strong performance by Clemson signee Jackson Lindley and Griffin Patterson. The Jackets are without Lindley but have all other arms ready to go. The Trojans are without Cameron Reeves and Ethan Martinez but have the other bullets available to attempt to make a charge back. Without further delay, let’s see how the District III championship game(s) shook out!
