KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Maryville will advance to the 6A state semifinals after a 35-28 win over Dobyns-Bennett Friday night.

In one of the more bizarre situations you’ll see, Dobyns-Bennett got the nod from the TSSAA to advance on to the state quarterfinals over McMinn County.

D-B and McMinn County both showed up to play last week, but COVID concerns in the McMinn camp forced a last minute halt of the game.

After examining the situation, the TSSAA voted in favor of D-B. That was the good news for the Indians, the bad news is they win a trip to Maryville Friday night.
