20-November-2015 (HCS) - A trip to the Super 7 and the AHSAA Class 7A state championship was on the line Friday when Hoover sought redemption and Spain Park looked to extend its bragging rights in the intracity rivalry. Spain Park snapped a 41-game in-state win streak by the Bucs earlier this season with a 17-0 shutout, the Jaguars first win in 13 tries in the series. Friday, they squeaked out a second win, 7-6, to punch their ticket to the Super 7.

“It’s an unbelievable game. We couldn’t do anything offensively. We managed to squeak out one drive there at the end. Credit to Hoover and how they played. They made great adjustments from the first game,” Spain Park head coach Shawn Raney said. “I’m so proud of our kids and throughout the year they never give up, keep playing and believing in what we’re trying to get done. They did that tonight and won us a football game.”

The win snapped another Hoover streak: seven consecutive state championship appearances. The Bucs will have now played in all but two state finals since 2000. The last was when Spain Park beat Vestavia to reach the 6A title game at Legion Field in 2007. The Jaguars will meet McGill-Toolen Catholic in the championship Wednesday, Dec. 2 at Bryant-Denney Stadium in Tuscaloosa. Kickoff will be 7 p.m.
