Ava advances to state semifinals; Thayer gets eliminated

Two area high school football teams were in state quarterfinal action Saturday in Missouri.

Ava is one win away from playing for a state championship. The Bears went on the road and defeated Lamar 26-14 in the Class 2 State Playoffs. Ava is now 13-0 on the season, and they’ll return to the home field next weekend for their semifinal game against Clark County.

Thayer watched its season come to an end in the Class 1 State Playoffs. The Bobcats’ final possession ended with an interception, and Valle Catholic was able to run out the clock for a 15-14 victory in Ste. Genevieve. Thayer’s final record for the year is 11-2.
