Ava plays for Class 2 state title Friday in Columbia

An area high school football team in Missouri is looking to wrap up the week with the state’s biggest prize. Ava will compete for the Class 2 state championship Friday, as they take on Luthern North on the campus of the University of Missouri in Columbia.

The Bears are 14-0 on the season. Ava is the champion of District 3, and they won their state semifinal game at Silvey Field Saturday when they defeated Clark County in overtime.

Lutheran North, the champion of District 2, is from St. Louis. The Crusaders are 13-0 on the year and are coming off a two-touchdown victory over Lathrop.

Kickoff at Memorial Stadium is set for 3 p.m.
