Redbirds looking for a chirpy trip back home to Darlington

DARLINGTON - For the Darlington football team to get another chance to play at Martens Field in the WIAA Division 5 playoffs, today's first-round game against Palmyra-Eagle brings a sense of urgency. If the Redbirds beat the Panthers, they likely would face Pardeeville in the second round. And if they meet that challenge, things don't get any easier for Darlington (8-1). The Redbirds then likely would have to upset Lancaster in Level 3 and the either Saint Mary's Springs, Fond du Lac, or last year's Division 5 state runner-up Cedar Grove Belgium in the next round.
