Britton-Hecla quarterback Aiden Fredrickson eluded a pair of Burke defenders in Class 9A quarterfinal playoff action on Thursday. The sophomore threw for a touchdown and also scored on a pass interception return.
Braves Back In Semis Third Time
For the third straight year Britton-Hecla’s football team has earned a spot in the Class 9A semifinals.
The Braves defeated Warner and went on to win the state championship in 2017. Last year Howard ended the dream of an unbeaten season and a repeat state title, and this year Gregory (9-1) will be seeking to put the first blemish on Britton-Hecla’s perfect 9-0 mark.
Coach Pat Renner’s crew will host the semifinal contest at 6 p.m. Friday. Sully Buttes hosts Canistota-Freeman in the other semifinal with the winners clashing in Brookings at 11 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 14, for the state title. The finals are not being played in Vermillion this year because of remodeling work on the Dakota Dome.
