High School Football Playoffs: Turnovers Prove too Costly for Cavaliers

The road to the dome for St. Thomas More has had very few speed bumps.
In fact, the Cavaliers rolled through the regular season undefeated and dominated Hot Springs in the first round of the playoffs.
The Cavaliers were hoping Friday that their quest for the dome wouldn’t hit a major pothole as they faced one of the toughest teams in the state.
The Cavaliers hosted the defending state champion Madison Bulldogs in the Class 11A semifinals.

Despite a great effort by St. Thomas More, Madison defeated the Cavaliers, 35-19.

St. Thomas More had five turnovers in the game.
