Four Downs: Raiders go for regional championshipNovember 11, 2020
Here are the details for this week's Class 3A regional championship.
Raiders at Tigers
Teams: Southridge (12-0) at Lawrenceburg (11-1), 6:00 p.m., Saturday
1. Southridge was treated to a pep rally, fireworks and fire trucks after winning the Sectional 32 Championship Nov. 6 against Salem. Raiders coach Scott Buening appreciates how supportive the community is not just of football, but all of Southridge athletics. Winning games and achieving goals are what’s important to the team, but they love being able to share it with the school and community.
2. To win another championship on Saturday will take halting an 11-game win streak the Tigers are currently riding. Buening sees a very good team on film that has size, strength and is well-coached. Junior quarterback Garrett Yoon of the Tigers has attracted multiple NCAA Division I offers. Yoon can be a dual-threat quarterback for the Tigers.
3. The Tigers showed how balanced they can be on offense in their Nov. 6 49-12 sectional championship triumph at Franklin County. They’re averaging 39.1 points on offense. Yoon and senior Adam Burd each ran for more than 140 yards. He also chucked three touchdown passes to fellow junior Aiden Gilmour, and Buening knows the Raiders can’t key in on a single player.
4. “They’ve got a lot of weapons at their disposal offensively, and they do a really good job of just taking whatever it is the defense gives them," Buening said. “And if you overload one way or overplay a certain part of their offense, they have the ability and willingness to go the other direction with it. That balance, combined with some really good players, makes them quite a challenging opponent.”
