Top 5 'Other' Playoff Games in 4A
1. Bay City vs. La Marque
- Yes, it's a long way away, but if you can make the drive down to the
Houston area to see this one you won't be disappointed. Bay City made
the D1 final last year and La Marque was the D2 champion. BC beat La
Marque in the first game of the season so the Cougars will be looking for
revenge. Truly a matchup of top contenders in this first round game.
2. Highland Park vs.
Texas High - The Scots and Tigers will play Friday night at Rose Stadium in
Tyler in another first round game featuring state top ten teams. Texas
High struggled early in the year and picked up two losses but they've come
on strong in recent weeks and haven't lost since their fourth game of the
year. HP lost their opener against Denton Ryan but have since won 9
straight and have been especially impressive since beating Wylie three weeks
3. Ennis vs. Kimball -
The Lions will take on the Kimball Knights Friday night at Sprague Field in
Dallas. Kimball had a tough time early in the year but turned it
around after their embarassing loss to Waco University and have one of the
top defenses in the area featuring possibly the top defensive line in the
state led by all-world DT Demarcus Granger. The Lions will be looking
to get back on track after last week's loss.
4. Denison vs. Aledo -
The Yellowjackets and superstar Corey Robertson's reward for winning
district is the Bearcats who finished second in their district to undefeated
Stephenville. Aledo has had some great playoff runs the past few years
but this year's first hurdle is daunting indeed as Robertson has proven that
he is one of the top all-around players in the state after coming back from
a knee injury sustained in their early season loss to Kimball. The
game will be at 8pm on Friday at Pirate Stadium in Wylie.
5. Waxahachie vs.
Killeen - The Indians and Kangaroos will meet at 7:30 Saturday night at Waco
ISD Stadium. Waxahachie has reeled off 8 straight wins after they
dropped their first two contests - a winning streak that was kicked off by
their one point win over the Tigers. Killeen went undefeated in
district play and is looking to make a run in Region 2. If Waxahachie
and Ennis can both win it would set up a classic rivalry game for round 2 of
