Connell Looking for Back-to-Back State Titles

Posted: Updated:

CONNELL, Wash. -- Get ready for Round 2 of the Connell/Cascade Christian state title fight.

The two programs duked it out a year ago when the Eagles won 28 to 7 to become 1A State Champs.

This Saturday, the stage is set for a rematch and Connell feels confident it can repeat last year's triumph.

"This is the third year in a row that they are going to state," said Senior Defensive End Bryant Andersen. " They're really going to want to win but at the same time we kind of have some confidence because we know that we can play against these guys because we played against them last year. I just hope we don't have too much confidence going into this game."
