CLASS 4A DIVISION I

REGION I


Mineral Wells (10-2) vs. Brownwood (10-2), 1 p.m. Friday, Abilene’s Shotwell Stadium

Abilene Wylie (10-2) vs. Levelland (7-4), 7:30 p.m. Friday, Midland’s Grande Stadium

REGION II

Kennedale (12-0) vs. Argyle (11-1), 7:30 p.m. Friday, SMU’s Ford Stadium

Texarkana Liberty-Eylau (11-1) vs. Kaufman (11-1), 7:30 p.m. Friday, Royse City

REGION III

El Campo (9-3) vs. Silsbee (10-2), 7 p.m. Friday, Conroe’s Moorhead Stadium

El Campo may have the better rushing attack of these two teams, but Silsbee is more talented overall. The cousin combination of Dontre and Adonis Thomas lead the way for Silsbee’s offense, with help from Under Armour All-American Patrick Hudson anchoring the offensive line. It will be up to El Campo’s defense to prevent this from becoming a battle of quarterbacks which would heavily favor Silsbee. – John Diaz

Navasota (12-0) vs. Carthage (9-3), 6 p.m. Friday, Beaumont’s Umphrey Stadium

Navasota WR Tren’Davian Dickson will look to build on his record-setting career this week against an aggressive Carthage Bulldog team. – Nick Harris

REGION IV

Waco La Vega (12-0) vs. Liberty Hill (10-2), 7:30 p.m. Friday, Killeen’s Buckley Stadium

The Pirates have scored over 40 points in their first two playoff games. La Vega combines speed on offense with hard hitting on defense. Thinking about a return engagement next week against China Spring might be the biggest problem the Pirates face with Liberty Hill. – John Hillman

Gatesville (6-6) vs. China Spring (11-1), 7:30 p.m. Friday, Hewitt

The Hornets lost to China Springs 42-17 in the regular season finale but rolled to two easy wins in the playoffs. Experience might give Gatesville a bit more advantage, but the Cougars want another shot at La Vega in the regional finals. – John Hillman

CLASS 4A DIVISION II

REGION I

Krum (7-5) vs. Sweetwater (12-0), 2 p.m. Friday, Brownwood

Celina (12-0) vs. Perryton (7-5), 7 p.m. Friday, Vernon

REGION II

Gilmer (12-0) vs. Center (10-2), 7:30 p.m. Friday, Tyler’s Rose Stadium

Lorena (9-3) vs. Atlanta (8-4), 7 p.m. Friday, Mesquite’s Memorial Stadium

The Leopards found unconventional ways to win throughout district play and the playoffs. That mojo might take Lorena into the regional title match. – John Hillman

REGION III

West Orange-Stark (11-1) vs. Caldwell (8-4), 7 p.m. Friday, Porter

Caldwell’s late comeback against La Marque gives them a date against powerhouse West Orange-Stark. On paper, both teams have evenly matched, balanced offenses. But West Orange-Stark’s Chain Gang defense continues to flex their dominance in these playoffs. Wharton did end the Mustangs shutout streak, but most of their yards and points came in the second half after West Orange-Stark was already up 40-2. – John Diaz

Giddings (12-0) vs. Bellville (10-2), 7:30 p.m. Friday, Bryan’s Green Stadium

REGION IV

Geronimo Navarro (11-0) vs. Cuero (7-5), 7:30 p.m. Friday, San Antonio’s Gustafson Stadium

Sinton (11-0) vs. Wimberley (5-7), 2 p.m. Saturday, San Antonio’s Alamo Stadium

Wimberley was staring 0-6 in the face at one point this season, but their ability to capitalize on opponents’ mistakes has led them to a regional round birth. Now Wimberley’s next opportunity revolves around Sinton’s quarterback situation. Colton Cohea broke his collarbone during the second quarter of Sinton’s win over Llano last weekend. But sophomore Colt Gorman is not your regular inexperienced quarterback. Gorman appeared in nine of Sinton’s 11 games this season, completing 23 of his 45 passes for 299 yards and three touchdowns, while rushing for 397 yards and another three touchdowns. – John Diaz
