Weddington's 6th-grade football team defeated the previously unbeaten Forest Hills on Saturday, 16-8, to advance to the 6th championship game next week.
It was an incredible achievement for a team that finished the regular season two games over .500. Forest Hills came into the game with the best 6th-grade defense, but the Wildcats' playoff offense is clicking, and the team defense has improved during its two-week postseason run.
Last season, in the 6th-grade playoff bracket, it was a #5 ranked Cuthbertson squad that knocked off the top-ranked teams to win the championship.
Weddington (7-3) would like to repeat that model and can do so with a win against Holy Trinity (9-1) at Monroe High School on Saturday afternoon at 1 PM.
