Big Game This Week
North Laurel at Perry Central
The Jaguars are trying to capture the program's first-ever playoff win, and it's not going to be easy. It's always hard to win at Perry Central, and it's not going to be any different Friday. Chris Larkey's squad will try to figure out how to score against Dave Mitchell-coached defense. This game should be a thriller.

They said it
“Our goal was not to win eight games. Our goal was not to tie the school record for wins. Our goal was to break the school record. Our goal was to get to the playoffs, but our main goal has always been to win a playoff game.” — North Laurel coach Chris Larkey after his team's 35-0 win over Grant County.
“This was one of those nights where the kids did every single thing we asked them to do and it showed. We are really lucky here at Williamsburg to have such a great group of coaches who do a fantastic job getting our kids ready every week and this week was no different.” — Williamsburg coach Jerry Herron after his team's 47-0 blow out win over Pineville.
