Congratulations to Texas High and Pleasant Grove... again! Both schools continued their winning ways last week and move up another rung in the Texas High School playoff brackets. Here are this week's playoff locals and times.
Texas High Tigers are now 12/0 after beating Port Neches-Groves last Friday 44 - 21.
This week the Tigers play Friday, December 3 in Lufkin at Abe Martin Stadium taking on the 11/2 Crosby Cougars.
Everyone knows the competition gets tougher the higher you climb in the playoffs and this could be the first real threat to T-High this season. The Cougars average 275 yards a game in total offense and put up around 50 points per game as well. Go get 'em Tigers, show them how we do it in Northeast Texas.
Kickoff at 7:30 PM.
The trip is 2 hours and 50 minutes according to Google Maps:
The Pleasant Grove Hawks are now 8/5 on the season after beating Ford Quinlan last Saturday 17 - 7.
There's only one team that beat our Hawks this season in district play and that was Gilmer, so this week PG has a chance to get that one back as they get ready to face the Buckeyes one more time this season. This Friday the Hawks travel once again to Sam Parker Field in Mt Pleasant to take on the 12/1 Gilmer Buckeyes.
Kickoff at 7 PM Friday, December 3. Drive time from Texarkana is 1 hour and 1 minute, according to Google Maps.
Good luck this weekend T-High and PG!
