Skyhawks prepare for semifinal rematch

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

 L.C. Bird has been nothing short of dominant in the postseason in the last three years. Since 2012, the Skyhawks boast a 12-0 record in playoff games and find themselves just two wins away from a third consecutive state title.

As always, getting there is no easy task. The Skyhawks will face a hungry Salem team in Saturday's state semifinal. The Sun Devils have a bitter taste in their mouths after last year's state semifinal match-up, in which Bird scored a late touchdown to earn a 7-3 win.

Skyhawks' head coach David Bedwell says Salem has a lot of the same players back and they expect to face one of the best and most well-prepared teams they've seen all season. L.C. Bird hopes to repeat the script of last Friday's win at Hermitage, in which the Skyhawks got out to a fast start and never looked back en route to the win.

Both teams enter with 11-2 records. Saturday's showdown kicks off at 1:00pm at the Virginia Beach Sportsplex.
