Games This Week
WEST ORANGE-STARK over BRIDGE CITY—The Mustangs have captured their tenth straight district title and would love to go into the state playoffs next week with an unblemished regular-season record. The Cards would love to stick a hickey on the ‘Stangs’ season mark but would have to play their best game of the decade and then some.
SPLENDORA over LITTLE CYPRESS-MAURICEVILLE—The Battlin’ Bears have had a rough go of their murderous schedule this season but still have a chance for a playoff berth with a victory Friday night. A great effort would be a nice stepping stone for next year’s season and an upset victory would be even better.
ORANGEFIELD over HARDIN-JEFFERSON—Both of these playoff-bound teams have had exceptional seasons so far and will try to use this final game of the regular season to help get ready for next week’s first -round of the playoffs. The Bobcats would love to go into the post-season with a three-game winning streak and the Hawks would like to make amends for last week’s loss to Silsbee.
VIDOR over LUMBERTON—The Pirates made a valiant effort to upset undefeated and state-ranked Huffman last week but fell short by only a field goal. They should have a lot less trouble finishing the regular season with a victory and getting into the playoffs.
DEWEYVILLE over HIGH ISLAND—The Pirates have blasted through their first four District 12-2A-II opponents and should do the same in Friday’s game at the Cardinals’ home field and enjoy their district championship.
