Friday, September 8
Dafford Smith Stadium - Fairview
5A, Region 6
SERIES: Fairview 5-2
2016: Corner 36-6
LAST WEEK: Fairview defeated East Lawrence 42-7
Corner defeated South Lamar 34-14
FLASH NOTES: Plenty at stake in the first 5A, Region 6 contest for both. The Aggies are hoping to use plenty of positive effect from last week's domination at East Lawrence. George Redding knows his squad has a tough challenge from Corner, who lost to Dora 29-6 in its opener then won over South Lamar by three touchdowns.
Corner is 5-2 away from home since last season, providing an issue that they play competitive football, regardless of where the game is.
This could be a special night for Redding. A victory ties him with Dafford Smith as the winningest coach in Fairview history. Smith produced 65 victories between 1986 to 1996 with Redding at 64. Redding came to his alma mater in 2007.
A victory against Corner will allow the Aggies to use next week for a bye week to continue to move forward then prepare for an early season confrontation with defending regional champion Mortimer Jordan in Morris on September 22.
Corner completes its current road tour this week, going home for the first time in 2017 next week when they meet Mortimer Jordan.
