After a thrilling 50-49 overtime playoff win on Saturday, Mt. Carmel’s Golden Aces find themselves among the state’s final eight teams in Class 3A.
After Carterville scored in the overtime, Levi Laws answered with a touchdown to pull the Aces within one. Opting to go for two, Mt. Carmel earned the win when Reece Metcalf got across the goal line.
This Saturday, the third-seeded Aces will get a quarterfinal home game against Greenville. Greenville, the top seed in the bracket, beat Robinson 49-21 last weekend. Game time is set for 1 p.m.
