To Norborne/Hardin-Central tight end and defensive end Kysor Hughes, NHC’s 72-8 win last Friday night over Northwest of Hughesville at Hardin-Central did more than extend the Aggies’ season.

“I felt like this was a good game for all of us to get our confidence back before (playing) Sacred Heart,” said the Hardin-Central sophomore, whose contributions to the District 4 Tournament win in 8-man football included a second-quarter interception and a fourth-quarter tackle for a safety.

Hughes and his older brother, junior offensive and defensive lineman Hunter Hughes, agreed that team focus was key to the Aggies (7-3) getting the confidence-building win that set up their meeting with Sacred Heart in the district semifinals at 4 p.m. this Saturday at Sedalia Smith-Cotton High School. The elder Hughes thought the Aggies were considerably more focused Friday than they had been during their Week 9 road loss to Southwest of Livingston County.
