HUNTSVILLE, Ala — For the third year in a row, Fyffe and Mars Hill will play for a state title in football.
The 3A semifinals concluded Friday night with 2019 Class 2A state champion Fyffe (14-0) beating defending Class 3A state champion Piedmont 14-6 to advance to Thursday’s Class 3A championship game at 10 a.m., to face Montgomery Catholic (12-2). The Red Devils of Coach Paul Benefield won the 2018 and 2019 Class 2A state crowns but moved to Class 3A this season. Fyffe also rolls in to the finals riding a 44-game winning streak overall and 14-game playoff winning streak.
Abbeville (12-1) takes on Mars Hill Bible (12-2) in the Class 2A final at 2:45 p.m., on Friday. The Yellow Jackets, coached by LaBrian Stewart, are making their first Super appearance and are in the finals for the first time since 1971. Abbeville made history in the championship game by tying Oneonta 0-0 in the state championship game in the AHSAA to end in a tie. The Panthers, coached by Darrell Higgins, are making their third straight appearance in the state finals – winning the 1A crown in 2018, finishing second last year and now making their first 2A championship appearance.
