A great week of district semifinal action set up what should be an even better week of district championship action. 

We had reporters at three different games across southwest Missouri on Friday evening.

We couldn’t be everywhere, but there were a few games across the region that stood out when we checked our phones after covering our games.

Here are a few takeaways from what went down across the area as we look ahead to next week:

2020 DISTRICT SEMIFINALS COVERAGE

The Mt. Vernon Mountaineers took on the Cassville Wildcats at Mt. Vernon during the first week of Friday night football during the COVID-19 pandemic on Friday, Aug. 28, 2020.

Is Mount Vernon back?

The downfall of the Mount Vernon football program has proven to be greatly exaggerated. 

Tom Cox had the Mountaineers (5-5) ready to go after a week off and led his team to a 42-0 win over Seneca (3-7) — a team that surprised last week with an upset win over Aurora (6-4). 

Mount Vernon’s win ended what was a five-game losing streak to end the regular season. Star wide receiver Rafe Darter tore his ACL right before Logan-Rogersville (7-3) came back to hand the Mountaineers their first loss of the five-game streak.
