DARLINGTON - Scott Zywicki expected Darlington to be on a collision course last year to meet Pecatonica-Argyle in a state semifinal. However, Melrose-Mindoro's quarterback Sam Boone tossed a game-winning 21-yard touchdown pass in the final seconds to upset the Vikings 21-17 and the matchup in the state semifinal game didn't materialize. However, this season Pecatonica-Argyle (11-0) has been on a collision course to meet Darlington (11-0) in a WIAA Division 6 state quarterfinal since the playoff bracket was released.
