AC Flora High School
Midland Valley High School
The AC Flora High School Junior Varsity Falcon Football team popped on their white away jerseys, loaded themselves on the white Richland One bus, and drove seven hours west to Burnettetown, South Carolina, to joust on the gridiron with the Midland Valley High School Junior Varsity Mustang Football Team. Our boys started slow, but finished fast, winning going away, 34-12 over the ‘Stang Gang.
It has been a tough season for the Falcons, with wins hard to come by. This win was sweet, as the Young Birds persevered after being down 12-0 at the half, going on to score 34 unanswered points earning their 2nd win of the season, a well-deserved victory after never, ever, ever, giving up!
Even though The Fowl We Favor are sporting a disappointing 2-5 record, the Falcons sparked hope that hard work pays off, and that gives us all a glimpse of what is most certainly a promising future for Falcon Football.
Next week, the Fighting Flocking Falcons head east and south to Lower Richland High School, hoping to clip the fast flapping wings of the Diamond Hornets.
