Albany - The Deerfield-Windsor Knights win over defending state champion Tattnall Square set off a joyous celebration last Friday at Webb Stadium.
As big as that win was, the Knights have an even bigger game this week. Friday's semifinal win over Deerfield-Windsor sends the Knights into the GISA AAA state championship game.
Deerfield-Windsor will host region rival Westfield for the state championship.
The Knights won on a last second field goal in the regular season.
The seniors know they have to have their minds on the Hornets and not Tattnall Square this week.
Quarterback Tommy Forrestal said. "I am more nervous than anything that we are just going to try to live off that. Now we have beaten Tattnall. What else do we have to do? I hope every body keeps focused on the task at hand and that is is winning the state championship."
Linebacker Patrick Miller said "That was a huge win. It was a great feeling. We just know we have to stay focused for this game this week."
