SEQUOYAH - When Sweetwater and Sequoyah meet up, things can always get interesting. ItвЂ™s almost a guarentee that youвЂ™ll remember something from these two schools playing that had nothing to do with the actual games.
In the first two games held at the Wildcat den earlier this year, fans on both sides expressed their desire to be seen. Even though fans wanted to make that game a shouting match, the contest was still decided on the court, just like this one will be. Sweetwater is coming off some close games and has no doubt progressed towards the end of the season in time for district play.
The Lady Chiefs though, are about to hit the final stretch of games before tournament time, and are no doubt looking to trounce anyone standing between them and another game with the McMinn Central Chargerettes.
Sequoyah handled this game easily the first time, and even with the improvements by the Lady Cats, Sequoyah should win this game. The boyвЂ™s game could be a toss up. Sequoyah is coming off the high of beating the number three team in the state, and thus lodging themselves into a tie with the McMinn Central Chargers.
Sweetwater heads into this game after beating East Ridge, but then also letting a potential win get away at Tellico Plains. If you remember correctly, the Chiefs hit eight three-pointers in the first quarter in the last game against the Wildcats.
If Seqouyah can have that kind of accuracy from deep this time around, they will pull of the win.
These games, as I said, are always hard to predict. Nevertheless, these rivalries
are what makes high school basketball fun. Anything can happen. So if youвЂ™re headed to the Chop House on Friday to cheer for either school, remember to enjoy the contest and the spirit of the rivalry.
In case anyone is worried about whether or not the officials can accurately call the game, donвЂ™t be. Much like the last time these two met, glasses and other seeing devices will be provided before the contest, and maybe like last time, during.
