Two great coaches on the sidelines in this one....

Anderson County's Clay Birdwhistell is 175-51 over seven seasons and his teams have won 6 consecutive district 30 titles, and are the defending 8th Region champs.

Mark Clinkenbeard is 214-104 over ten seasons at Walton-Verona, with 4 district titles and one region 8 title (2012).

Anderson County 40

Walton-Verona 22

W-V tried to slow the pace of the game down, and trailed just 21-16 midway through the third period, but a 9-0 Anderson run to end the third gave Anderson a 14 point lead and essentially sealed the outcome.
