APPLETON CITY – Norborne Hardin-Central varsity coach Kirk Thacker found himself in a “strange” situation Oct. 25.
Thacker’s Aggies faced undefeated Appleton City/Ballard/Montrose at Appleton City High School in the regular-season finale of the 8-man football season for both programs. Through their first eight games, the Aggies had scored 322 points – an average of 40.25 points per game. Appleton City/Ballard/Montrose had scored 536 points – an average of 67 points per game. So, naturally, it was a Friday night full of high-powered offense with beaucoup points, right?
Final score: Bulldogs 22, Aggies 16.
