Cannon County will be at home Friday night when the Lions play their first football playoff game in 14 years.
Cannon County, which won the District 8-AA title, will face Harpeth High from Kingston Springs in Cheatham County at 7 p.m. at Fred Schwartz Field at Cannon County High School.
The Lions, who enter the contest coming off a 6-4 regular season record, are the No. 2 seed in the quadrants the TSSAA has established for the football playoffs. Harpeth comes in with a 5-5 record and the No. 6 seed.
“We are happy to be able to host a game and appreciate the strong support the community has shown,” Lions’ first-year head coach Joel Schrenk said Saturday morning as his team and supporters gathered at the Courthouse Square to listen to a radio broadcast of the annoucement of the playoff brackets.
Tickets for the playoff game will be $8 each. They will be available beginning Wednesday at the high school and up until game time.
The Lions Boosters Club is planning a pep rally at the Courthouse Square Thursday night at 7 p.m. and encourages the community to come out and show their support for the Lions.
