Two MCPSS high schools are moving on to the second round in the Alabama High School Athletic Association state football playoffs.
Blount defeated Chelsea 41-28 and Vigor knocked off Central of Clay County 26-14 in last week’s first round to advance.
The other three MCPSS schools that qualified for the playoffs – Murphy, Theodore and Williamson – all fell short in first-round play.
Blount will travel to Bessemer this Friday to face Bessemer City, a 28-24 winner at Park Crossing in the first round, while Vigor plays host to Demopolis, a 48-13 winner over Charles Henderson. Those games are set for 7 p.m. Friday.
