It's been a long time since East Middle was undefeated this late in the season.
The Missiles, who were off this week, are 7-0 on the season with three games left to play, including the intra-county battle against also undefeated West Middle.
"I don't know for sure, but it's been a long time and we're enjoying it," EMS head coach Alan Matthews said. "There's a lot of enthusiasm at the school right now, they're very proud."
Two years ago the team went 6-4 and caused some other schools to notice, but the Missiles dropped back to 1-8 last year with a very young team.
