It's been a season for the record books already at Mansfield Senior, but the Tygers can accomplish something that's never been done in program history with a win on Friday.

Mansfield Senior travels to Lexington this week for a date with the 1-7 Minutemen, looking to become the first team in program history to start a season 9-0. Only the 1931 Tygers had began a season with 8-straight wins before this years bunch did it, but Mansfield head coach Chioke Bradley says he isn't worried about all that.

"I just want to concentrate on being the best we can be every day." Bradley says. "I'm not really looking at the records and all that stuff. I want to make sure we have a good practice today, tomorrow and the rest of the week so that we can be prepared for our next opponent which is Lexington."

Bradley believes his team is focused on their daily tasks and will not overlook the Minutemen this week. Even though Lexington's season is well over in terms of making it to the postseason, Bradley says they still have a lot to play for when his team visits them on Friday.

"With Lexington only having one win, those guys are saying we want to be the team to beat the Tygers in 2013." Says Bradley. "We can't slack in any of our preparation. I don't think our kids will. I think they'll do a great job of being mentally and physically focused today and throughout the week."

The Tygers are currently ranked 2nd in Division 2, Region 5 and although they have not clinched a playoff berth just yet, do control their own destiny. With a win over the Minutemen, Mansfield Senior will likely secure a spot in the postseason. A win over cross-town rival Madison in their regular season finale will give the Tygers their first perfect regular season in school history and would all but wrap up a home playoff game in week 11.

You can see if Mansfield Senior makes history at Lexington this Friday night at 11:30 on WMFD's Scores and More. Tune in for highlights and analysis from that game.
