Congratulations to Texas High and Pleasant Grove as they continue their climb through the Texas High School playoff brackets. T-High is still trying to find their best competition for this season and PG picked up the win in double overtime.
Unfortunately, we had to say goodby to two of our local teams that finished their season last Friday night. De Kalb wrapped up its season at 8/4 with their loss to Newton 36 - 6. Ashdown finished up last Friday as well with a 9/3 overall record on the season with their loss to Shiloh Christian 21 - 0. Congratulations to both schools on outstanding seasons.
Below are the teams advancing this week and with any luck, won't find the end of their season any time soon.
Texas High Tigers are now 11-0 after beating Texas City last Friday in Lufkin, 31 - 0.
