There have been a number of big games in Class 2A District 4 this season. None will have more impact than tonight’s collision between top ranked North Fayette Valley and second rated Union (LaPorte City). The Knights would clinch the district title with a win.
“You are looking at a guaranteed home playoff opportunity in round one and the district title on the line so it is a big game”, said Union coach Joe Hadachek. “We are not trying to tell the kids to treat it like any other game because it is not. It is for the district title and you are going to have to play up a notch in this game.”
North Fayette Valley may not be able to clinch the district title with a win. The TigerHawks close the regular season next week against a Waukon team that has only one district loss.
“The good news is if we play well and can win one of them we will be in the playoffs and that is the ultimate goal”, said North Fayette Valley coach Bob Lape. “We are going to try to do everything we can to win this game and make a statement but we realize it is not the end of the year and it is not the end of the world if we lose this game.”
