Regional Final High School Playoff Games This Week
Last updated 11/30/2021 at 7:25pm
WEST ORANGE-STARK (11-1) over CHINA SPRING (13-0) 7 p.m. Friday at Tomball ISD Stadium in Tomball-The Mustangs were defeated by the Cougars 35-22 at this time last year, but the Mustangs had several starting players sidelined after testing positive for COVID-19. This time the Mustangs are at full strength and in a revengeful mood and will pull of the big upset Friday night in Tomball.
LITTLE CYPRESS-MAURICEVILLE (11-2) over TYLER CHAPEL HILL (10-3) 7:30p.m. Friday at Cy-Fair FCU Stadium in Cypress -The Battlin' Bears seem to play better when they are the underdogs, so let's say Chapel Hill is favored (but I don't believe it) even though they defeated Kilgore 41-35 in overtime last weekend in the regional semis. LC-M just needs to continue what it's been doing the last three state playoff games.
