South to meet West for city football title

Undefeated South (7-0) can wrap up the mythical city junior high football championship today by knocking off West (1-4).

Kickoff will be 3:50 p.m. at Ralph Wedd Field on the SJHS campus.

South took a giant step toward winning the city title by spilling previously unbeaten Southwest last Thursday at Haskell Stadium.

Central, the other city junior high, is not fielding a ninth-grade football team this fall due to a lack of numbers.
