CLASS 4A DIVISION I

Region I


Pampa (8-3) vs. Mineral Wells (9-2) Friday 7:00pm Jones AT&T Stadium, Lubbock

Andrews (10-1) vs. Brownwood (9-2) Friday 7:30pm San Angelo Stadium, San Angelo

Abilene Wylie (9-2) vs. Borger (5-6) TBD

Stephenville (4-6) vs. Levelland (6-4-1) Friday 7:30pm Mustang Bowl, Sweetwater

Stephenville pulled off a big upset last week against a Decatur team that lost just one game all season prior to last week’s 49-28 loss. They’ll look for another upset win on Friday against a Levelland team whose record is a bit deceiving. The Lobos may be known for their offense behind QB Gerber who threw for 6 TDs and ran for one, but their defense proved plenty last week. – Michael De Leon

Region II

Kennedale (11-0) vs. Athens (8-3) Friday 7:30pm Lion Memorial Stadium, Ennis

Argyle (10-1) vs. Pittsburg (10-1) Friday 7:30pm Royse City ISD Stadium, Royse City

While these teams seem identical in many ways, including records and offense, Argyle has got to be the favorite. Pittsburg has the offense, led by QB Baca, to contend with Argyle’s offense, but defense is another thing altogether. Could be close, but look for Argyle to move on unless they make uncharacteristic mistakes. – Michael De Leon.

Texarkana Liberty-Eylau (10-1) vs. Sanger (10-1) Thursday 7:00pm Royse City ISD Stadium, Royse City

Kaufman (10-1) vs. Alvarado (9-2) Friday 7:30pm Gopher-Warrior Bowl, Grand Prairie

Region III

Kilgore (8-3) vs. El Campo (8-3) Friday Time 7:30pm Texan Drive Stadium, New Caney

Silsbee (9-2) vs. Sealy (6-5) Friday 7:30pm Woodforest Bank Stadium, Shenandoah

Navasota (11-0) vs. Jasper (7-4) Friday 7:00pm Moorehead Stadium, Conroe

Navasota senior Tren’Davian Dickson needs one more touchdown catch to break Jordan Shipley’s state record of 73. Their defense played pretty laxed the entire second half last week, but being up 42-0 going into halftime will do that to you. Jasper should be in for a long night. – John Diaz

Stafford (11-0) vs. Carthage (8-3) Friday 7:00pm Turner Stadium, Humble

Stafford has never advanced to the third round of the playoffs, but they look to change that this week against Carthage. They have an experience roster of juniors and seniors, but face a Carthage team that performs its best under pressure. If Stafford wants to advance, they need to jump on Carthage early and often. – John Diaz

Region IV

Waco LaVega (11-0) vs. Rockport-Fulton (7-3) Friday 7:30pm Rhodes Stadium, Katy

The Pirates burn teams with their speed and their running game wears down the defense. A mistake-free La Vega will be tough to stop. – John Hillman

Liberty Hill (9-2) vs. Gonzales (5-6) Friday 7:30pm Hawk Stadium, Fischer

LaVernia (7-4) vs. Gatesville (5-6) Friday 7:30pm Shelton Stadium, Buna

The Hornets looked impressive beating Taylor in bi-district action. How long this Cinderella can dance at the playoff ball remains to be seen,. But Gatesville has already faced stiff competition in district from China Spring and La Vega and now the Hornets know what it takes to win. – John Hillman

LaFeria (8-2) vs. China Spring (10-1) Saturday 3:00pm Rutledge Stadium, Converse

The Cougars appear to be hitting their stride and would relish the opportunity to face district rival La Vega again in the playoffs.- John Hillman

CLASS 4A DIVISION II

Region I

Iowa Park (7-4) vs. Krum (5-6) TBD

Sweetwater (11-0) vs. Aubrey (7-4) Friday 7:30pm Pirate Stadium, Granbury

Celina (11-0) vs. Monahans (7-4) Friday 7:00pm Shotwell Stadium, Abilene

Anna (3-8) vs. Perryton (6-5) Friday 7:00pm Bulldog Stadium, Cache, OK

Region II

Gilmer (11-0) vs. Mexia (7-4) Friday 7:30pm Memorial Stadium, Mesquite

Gilmer is likely the favorite as the Buckeyes have not missed a beat record-wise in the post-Traylor era, but Gilmer did have a close game last week, and that may be enough motivation for a talented Mexia team. If Gilmer can limit turnovers, their defense will take care of the rest. – Michael De Leon

Center (9-2) vs. Fairfield (8-3) Friday 7:30pm Lobo Stadium, Longview

The Eagles will give the ball to Charles Oliver at every opportunity. How well Fairfield performs depends largely on his performance. – John Hillman

Lorena (8-3) vs. Canton (6-5) Friday 7:30pm Newsom Stadium, Mansfield

The Leopolds surprised everyone by going undefeated in district and collecting an impressive opening playoff win. The streak should continue against Canton. – John Hillman

Coldspring (7-4) vs. Atlanta (7-4) Saturday 2:00pm Bruce Field, Athens

Region III

West Orange-Stark (10-1) vs. Wharton (8-3) Friday 7:30pm Maddry Stadium, Channelview

West Orange-Stark not only won 63-0 last week, but the “Chain Gang” held Scarborough to -40 yards of offense. I repeat, negative 40 yards of offense. Wharton’s in for some trouble. – John Diaz

LaMarque (9-2) vs. Caldwell (7-4) Friday 7:30pm Falcon Stadium, Huffman

Giddings (11-0) vs. Orangefield (6-5) Friday 7:30pm The Rig, Pearland

Bellville (9-2) vs. Hamshire-Fannett (8-3) Friday 7:30pm Memorial Stadium, Klein

Region IV

Geronimo Navarro (10-0) vs. Yoakum (6-5) Friday 7:30pm Memorial Stadium, Bastrop

Devine (10-1) vs. Cuero (6-5) Friday 7:30pm Heroes Stadium, San Antonio

Sinton (10-0) vs. Llano (4-7) Friday 7:30pm Veterans Memorial Stadium, San Antonio

Orange Grove (10-0) vs. Wimberley (4-7) Saturday TBD Memorial Stadium, Victoria

An overmatched Wimberley team is going to have more than it can handle in a Bulldog team that has not lost a game all season. – Michael De Leon
