The Saks Wildcats looked like a team on a mission to be in Tuscaloosa the second weekend in December Friday night as they took apart Westminster Christian 42-21 in a first-round Class 4A playoff game.

“These kids are hungry,” Wildcats head coach Jonathan Miller said after his team improved to 11-0 with its first playoff win since 2014. ”They want to make a run in the playoffs. We play in such a tough region -- I think all four of our region teams advanced tonight – we have to bring it every week and this group is really playing hard right now.”

The third-ranked Wildcats, ranked No. 1 in some polls, will host Dora (9-2) in the second round Friday.
