Seneca prepares to face Lamar in state semifinals

SENECA, Mo. – The Seneca Indians hit the road tomorrow to face Big 8 rival Lamar in the class 2 state semifinals.

Seneca and Lamar met once already this season, back in week four. The Indians handed the Tigers their only loss of the season 36-33.

“The win over Lamar helped our kids understand how good we could be,” Seneca head coach Cody Hilburn says. “Beating a team like Lamar with the run that they’re on was huge and kind of catapulted us into to what we did this year. I’m sure they’re looking forward to playing us again, but I think at this time of year when you’re playing a semifinal game you shouldn’t need much extra motivation.”

“I think they’re going to come out swinging,” says Seneca linebacker Lincoln Renfro. “I know they’re hungry for revenge and I think anyone would be too. I think if we just steady the pace and keep going, we’ll be fine. We want to be the group to do it and we want to be the group that sets the standard for years to come.”

Saturday’s game starts at 1pm.
