Three times, Norborne/Hardin-Central has played Sacred Heart.

Three times, Norborne/Hardin-Central has lost to Sacred Heart.

NHC coach Kirk Thacker hopes meeting No. 4 will be different.

The Aggies (7-3) will get another crack at the Gremlins (8-0 and ranked second in the Oct. 16 state 8-man football poll) at 4 p.m. Saturday at Smith-Cotton High School in Sedalia. The winner of the Missouri District 4 semifinal will face the winner of Friday’s Osceola-Greenfield semifinal on Nov. 3 for the district title.

“This is our opportunity to make some noise,” Thacker said after Norborne/Hardin-Central’s district win over Northwest of Hughesville. “If we can pull it off, it’ll be a great deal. We’ll be able to have quite a feather in our cap.”

But spoiling the Gremlins’ bid for a perfect season and a state title will be difficult, Thacker acknowledged.
