It has been two years since the Tigers made it past the first round of the State Playoffs, but last Friday night Commerce secured its spot in the second round after a 29-19 victory.
Commerce knocked Landmark Christian out of the postseason last week to advance the Tigers to face Darlington High School in Rome this Friday at 7:30. The 6-A Darlington Tigers are 7-4 overall after edging out Warren County 16-14. Commerce is also 7-4.
On paper, Commerce looks better than Darlington. The local Tigers score an average of six points more than Darlington and have allowed 56 fewer points. Regardless of how either set of Tigers looks on paper, coach Steve Savage has taken his own look at the competition.
