The Angola Hornets Win Sectional 19 Football Finals
Saturday Nov 03, 2018 12:00am
Angola repeats winning the Sectional Football Title for the second year in a row.
It’s the first time in program history that Angola has had 2 undefeated regular seasons while winning a sectional. The Hornets took the sectional title Friday night in a final score of Angola 27, Northwood 26.
Angola repeated winning the class 4A sectional champ in a back and forth game, finally defeating No. 1 Northwood. The big play that likely sealed the deal was when Hornet Linebacker Luke Honer stopped Panther star QB Bronson Yoder on a 4th-and-1 run play deep in Angola territory with around 2:45 left to preserve Angola's lead.
Yoder (of Northwood) had around 300 yards rushing in the game.
The win didn't come easy. At the half, it was Northwood 18, Angola 15.
Angola will play Bishop Dwenger at New Haven High School for the Regional Championship on Friday, November 9th. Kick-off in New haven will be 7 PM. WLKI will air that game with Tom Berry and Randy Coffey bringing you all the action starting pre-game at 6:45 PM.
