The win improved West Carter to 7-1, the best start in school history.
“We’re really enjoying the ride,” Johnson said. “Our seniors now for the first time in their careers see what it’s like to be on a winning team. They have stepped up and shown great leadership and that’s carried us to where we are right now.”
There is another opportunity for West Carter and Allen Central to meet again. Both could play in the semi-state matchup of the All “A” Classic next week if both win their respective regions.
“We would love to play them again,” Johnson said.
West began the 16th Region All “A” by playing in the semifinals against Raceland at Central Park in Ashland on Tuesday. If the Comets win, they’ll advance to Thursday’s championship against the winner of the Morgan County and Fairview game.
