Sixth-ranked Iredell wins convincingly; Meridian, Morgan fall

By Brett Voss

Although Class 2A Meridian and Class 1A Morgan were dealt early exits, Class 3A’s Clifton and Class 1A’s sixth-ranked Iredell rolled into the next round for the second consecutive season.

By Brett Voss Publisher

 

With four of Bosque County’s eight high school football teams headed to the playoffs, there’s been some history in the making.

In the meantime, the Morgan Eagles, led by first-year head coach Edward Aviles, have advanced to the post-season for the first time since 2001. In Class 2A, the Meridian
