District B-3 starting to heat up
Things are beginning to heat up in Class B, particularly in District B-3, home of three area teams No. 5 Cyril, Carnegie and Snyder.
Cyril (7-0, 2-0 B-3) kept steamrolling opponents with a 46-0 win over Geary on Friday.
Carnegie, meanwhile, held off a furious second half Snyder rally to squeak out a 42-34 victory on the road. Carnegie (4-3, 2-0) is on a three-game winning streak now leading up to a home date with Burns Flat-Dill City this Thursday.
Carnegie and Cyril meet the final week of the regular season, on Nov. 3, when the district title might be decided. A much improved Snyder (5-2, 1-1 B-3) squad and Alex (5-2, 1-1 B-3) are chasing but not far behind.
"It's looking tough. The district looks like it will come down to the last week where we figure out who's going where or who's going to do what," Carnegie coach Jim Harvey said. "That's what makes high school football so great. You're playing against other schools who are fighting for the district or to get into the playoffs and have an opportunity to be there. To me, that's what makes it so good."
Cyril gets its biggest test to date this Thursday when welcoming Snyder.
"I like that we are playing better teams," Cyril coach Trevor Knight said. "The further we go down the schedule I want us to be tested and this is definitely one of those tests. This year we are ready for these tests. Last year they weren't ready for these tests.
