Midway set to battle Mansfield in Regional Semifinals

What's one thing Midway and Mansfield have in common? They have both been coached by current Panthers head coach Jeff Hulme.

Hulme had a successful eight year run in charge of the Tigers before taking the reigns at Midway, where the Panthers are off to a 12-0 start.

The Tigers have been almost as good this year, going 11-1 so far under current head man Daniel Mayberry, who coached under Hulme.

And though there's a bit of familiarity between the teams, don't read too far into that fact.

"The two coordinators that Daniel has there now are two coaches that I had when I was there, so I feel like I know them pretty good. But it's still a players' game and our kids gotta go out there and play hard and play without making any mistakes," said Hulme.

Kickoff between Midway and Mansfield is set for Friday at 7:30 at McLane Stadium.
