Southwest traveled to Hardin-Central High School on Friday night and shutout the Bulldogs by a final score of 26-0. The win sends the Wildcats into the state semifinals, and a Friday night (November 22nd) matchup with the Stanberry Bulldogs.

Stanberry's quarterfinal game against Mound City was the polar opposite to the contest played in Hardin, with the Bulldogs rallying from 18 points down in the fourth quarter to stun Mound City 76-74 in overtime, keeping hopes alive for a second consecutive state championship.

Friday night's Stanberry at Southwest Livingston game, from Ludlow, will kick at 7 o'clock.

On the top half of the 8-man state bracket, Worth County traveled to Rock Port and grabbed a 46-30 win over the host Blue Jays, giving the Tigers their first district championship since winning the state title in 2011. On Friday night, Worth County will take on North Andrew, who demolished St. Joseph Christian by a final score of 58-0. The North Andrew / Worth County state semifinal will be played at Worth County High School in Grant City, with kickoff set for 7 o'clock.

The semifinal winners will advance to the Show-Me Bowl at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis, and the 8-Man state championship game, on Friday morning, November 29th, at 9:30.
