SEMINARY, MS (WDAM) - At 5-6, Seminary entered the class 3A playoffs as a No. 4 seed.
The Bulldogs evened their record and advanced the second round after knocking off one-seeded Velma Jackson 21-20 on the road.
"It was a battle," said Seminary head coach Brian Rials. "Tied at halftime, 14-14. They scored to take the lead in the second half, we block the extra point. Get a big turnover, go down and score and make the extra point. It was an exciting game."
Seminary hosts Port Gibson (8-3) on Friday night, hoping to ride its momentum into the second round.
"The season wasn't exactly the record we wanted but right now everybody that's still in it is 1-0 after the first round," Rials said. "Everybody's even, you can throw the records out. They're a No. 2 seed, Port Gibson, coming in here but we've played pretty good at home this year and we feel like we have a chance to give them some problems."
