Sussex Central has rode a ball hawking defense to a second consecutive playoff appearance. The Golden Knights host William Penn in the first round of the Delaware High School Football Playoffs. This is a rematch of last year’s first round game. The Colonials, playing on their home field ended Central’s season with a 38-21 win.
This year, it is in Georgetown and the Knights will need another big game from the defense to win their first playoff game since 2008. “Our defense has been our strong point,” Sussex Central head coach John Wells said. “they have some exceptional skill players. It’s one of the keys perhaps one of the biggest if we are going to beat these guys.”
