Wow - what a great game! It was a privilege to be at the game in such an awesome atmosphere!!!!  I was very proud of the PG team - they fought hard and until half-way through the 4th quarter the

You're just mad cuz I just enunciated what everyone already knows PG is doing. PG is scared to play with the big boys.

All those schools you just named are big now. They should be 5A now. They just wanna hang around in the smaller classes so they can use their depth to an advantage. They remind me of Celina, LaVega, and Refugio. 

As long as they are still in 4A they have an opportunity just like anybody else.

Just stop.  14-14 with 8 mins left in the 4th the game could have gone either way.  If PG converts that 4th and short it’s a much closer ending.  As it turns out they didn’t and Carthage made them pay.  The game was much closer than the score indicates.

This.  PG is a dang good team worthy of our respect.  I suspect they'll still be playing football when we're singing jingle bells.

Obviously with Carthage being in Region III, there's not as many toptier teams this season to contend with as in Region II.  So naturally Carthage fans feel very secure in their playoff possibilities going deep......and rightly so.  In Region II there are many toptier ranked teams in 4A D-l.  La Vega's District 5 has Brownwood and China Spring also.....not to mention Stephenville.  Argyle is in District 7 in Region II, along with Paris, Melissa, and Celina.  Those 2 districts alone are very strong in D-1 this season. In Region I, Decatur, Springtown, and Gainesville are all in the same district and all remain undefeated so far.  Say what you will, but they have all won against their schedule......it's still football and Friday Night Lights in Texas. Alvarado(4-2) in Region II District 8 lost to Van in the first game of the year, and to Decatur 49-42 in a close battle, but defeated Kennedale and China Spring already.  They could play the spoiler role in the playoffs in Region II.....they will most likely win their district  and nobody really knows yet how good they will be by the time the playoffs get here. I expect them to be undefeated in district play this season.......an under the radar team, for sure.

Toss up????? Hardly. 35-14 is not a toss up dude. Surratt knew what he was doing.

PG was leading 14-7 going into fourth quarter I believe. Carthage proved to be the better team with four consecutive scores. The Bulldogs wore the Hawks down and took advantage of a big turnover.

L-E has played all three powers. I rank Carthage as the best, Argyle second and LaVega third.

I like it.

I thought the biggest play in the game is when Carthage stopped Pleasant Grove in Carthage territory on 4th down with Carthage up 21-14.  PG was already having trouble stopping Carthage at that point and I think that stop prevented any momentum from swinging PG's way.  I know we are quick to criticize officials but I thought that crew last night did an outstanding job.  They let the kids play and with both teams playing at a fast pace, that crew hustled and got the ball back in play after each play to let the teams play at the pace they liked.  Great job by the refs!

Yep that play call did not make any sense 4th and a foot 21 and 25 had not been stopped for no gain all night and they go with a pitch back to the short side of the field! 
I agree the refs did an outstanding job!

Carthage proved to be the better team on this particular night.  The game was much, much closer than the final score indicated.  I was particularly disappointed with some decisions that the PG coach made that put the team in bad situations.  The first one was in the first quarter, the first play that the Hawks ran was a trick play that netted nothing.  When a coach goes directly to trick plays (BN of THS) then he has some doubt about his teams ability to just line up a run the plays that you usually run and are productive.  This play was also after PG had FORCED THE DOGS TO PUNT!!!  Who was that that said they never punt?  There was also a bad decision made towards the end of the second quarter that allowed the Dogs the opportunity to throw to deep pass that tied up the game.  In the second quarter the Hawks should have punted instead of going for it on fourth down that gave the Dogs a short field to work with and they capitalized on the opportunity.  PG should have thrown the ball more than they did to make the Dogs defense back off of the line of scrimmage.  With two weeks to prepare for PG the Dogs defended the run as well as I have seen anyone do it against PG.  The Dogs offensive line was really good and wore on PG in the second half because the PG offensive could not get anything going and the turnover.  BTW, I did not see PG snap the ball with less than 5 seconds on the play clock like some goofball stated in an earlier post.  The officiating was definitely better Friday night than it was last year in Carthage.  There is no cheating in Texarkana unless we get infiltrated by the agents of doom from out of town.  All things being equal and constant, if these two teams played again the game would be a tossup.  You Dog posters act like this is the first game that you have ever won but go ahead and enjoy your victory.  In a month or so you will be in the playoffs and you will go down again just like last season!  TTTtttooooodddlllllleeeelllooooo puppydawgs!!!

A 21 point score difference is not a toss up. Dawgs took awhile to find their rhythm but in the end they Carthaged on those lil Hawkies.
