Hometown Lenders Game of the Week: Florence vs James Clemens

Our Hometown Lenders Game of the Week for Football Friday is Florence vs James Clemens. A battle of two Class 7A heavyweights at Madison City Stadium.

We expected a hard-fought battle. These are two teams that are not gonna take this matchup lightly and they're not gonna go easy-- ever.

But James Clemens put this one out of reach for Florence early, the final score 51 to 20.

"We needed a region win from a team that I think is going to be in the playoffs from our region," said James Clemens coach Wade Waldrop. "We treated it like a playoff game we approached it like a playoff game. Looking back, I've said this a lot, last year going back to week 10 we lost week 10 to Hillcrest, a playoff team. We lost to Hewitt, a playoff team. Then we lost our first two games to playoff teams. So I mean to get a win against a playoff-caliber team, we needed that."
