After a one year absence the Hot Springs football team is back in the South Dakota 11B playoffs. The Bison locked down a 7-1 regular season record, and a playoff spot, with a 35-0 win over Lead-Deadwood last Friday.
Hot Springs will open as the #10 seed and travel to 7th seeded Bridgewater-Emery/Ethan on Thursday. Kickoff time is yet to be announced.
What’s been most impressive this season is that Hot Springs has shut out their opponent in every single win. The only two touchdowns they’ve given up were in a 14-0 loss to St. Thomas More back on September 3rd in a game that endured a weather delay.
The Bison will be in search of their first playoff win since 2012 when they defeated Todd County on the road.
