TAZEWELL, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Consecutive winning seasons have ended in disappointing fashion for the Claiborne Bulldogs. Barry Liles' team is hoping the third time is the charm.

The Bulldogs have suffered six-point first-round playoff losses in each of the past two seasons. But now, they're poised to win the first playoff game in school history.

Six starters return on each side of the ball, including quarterback Cody Malone, who led the team to a 7-4 record a year ago.
