Only one Frontier League school remains standing on the gridiron as the state playoffs begin.
The Indian River Warriors advanced to the state Class A playoffs with a 33-21 win over the Carthage Comets at the Carrier Dome Friday night.
Next up for the Warriors is a first-round meeting with Vestal at Cicero-North Syracuse High School at 8 p.m. Friday.
"Yes sir, we're going to take it one week at a time, each and every week," player Kwaszi Gaddis said. "We're trying to be 1-0 each and every week, so next week starting off 0-0, trying to be 1-0."
"It's pretty exciting," Coach Corey Marsell said. "We've been here and we've continued to lose over the last couple of years, now we finished it so we're excited about that."
