Despite a 33-30 loss to Unicoi County last week, the Happy Valley Warriors still control their destiny in the Three Rivers Conference — and for the TSSAA playoffs.
A win tonight against Sullivan East (0-4, TRC, 1-7 overall) will go a long way toward determining if the following week’s clash with Sullivan North has any relevance.
“It’s true,” said Warriors head coach Larry Shively about not being eliminated by the UC loss. “We need to win out, but we have to take care of business against Sullivan East first. It’s an old coach’s cliché, but you take them one game at a time, and this week we’ll put all our focus on East.”
