Rematch of Central-Clay Co. and Jasper comes in 2nd round of playoffs

Central-Clay Co. and Jasper face each other in rematch

JASPER, Ala. (WBRC) - The Jasper Vikings are just one of three undefeated teams left in Class 5A as they host Central-Clay Co. in regular-season rematch on Friday for our Sideline Game of the Week.

The 11-0 Vikings will host the 9-2 Volunteers in the second round of the Class 5A AHSAA Playoffs. The two teams met in the regular season when Jasper won 35-34 in double overtime.

“That was a battle over there, but then again we let some opportunities go in that game and that’s the way we feel about it. But bottom line, we have to play better than we did the first time,” said Jasper head coach Bryan Moore.

This will be Jasper’s 15th home game in two years, and the Vikings are glad they have home-field advantage against a tough opponent.

“That’s been big for us, our friendly crowd. It’s big to be here and to be in our own locker room and the comfort that comes with it,” Moore said.

You can watch a full recap of Friday’s game on Sideline starting at 10:25 p.m. only on WBRC FOX6.
