Surely it comes down to point differentials till it creates a ahead to head between two remaining teams. 

But I think some districts have some strange rules. 

Correct. It would come down to points, then head to head with the final two standing.

Well "those" you spoke with really weren't paying very close attention then. While it wasn't a large score disparity it wasn't really that close of a call especially statistically.  Marshall

Someone from Whitehouse complaining about class and sportsmanship... That's irony. Sports or not.

The distaste of the WH program by seemingly everyone in the district last season had nothing to do with 2006, purposely blown games, or the former coach.  There is something that every school in

I honestly wouldn’t be shocked if Waller beats Lufkin, and the other results go the way they’re suppose to, and we get that 5 way tie for third place.

Thatd be the most 2020 thing to happen, especially with the way Lufkin’s season has gone.

Lufkin has only played two home games this year, where they are 1-1, losing to Magnolia 26-24 and OT 13-7 win over New Caney. Six road games and a home forfeit by Cleveland.  It is what it is, it has been a crazy year, but those kids have been road tested.  Lufkin is an early 21 point favorite for this Friday.  Guess we will find out soon enough, nothing has been normal for Lufkin this year.

Marshall is going to have a difficult task with Nac's defense.  Nac's front seven are big and active and their secondary is very good and experienced.  For Marshall to have chance, they must be able to run the football and the Mav's head coach and staff must put their players in position to be successful.  I still can't understand why he milked the clock against TH the whole first half with NO lead or points on the scoreboard.  Poor job...to say the least.  Go Mav's!

Nac has the best secondary in the district. Two of those guys have been starting since they were freshman I believe. I just don’t see Marshall throwing on them at all especially with Nac front. But I also don’t see Nac doing much offensively against Marshall’s speed on defense. It’ll come down to what it always seems to come down to.... the band’s performance at the half. Seriously. It’ll be turnovers, as always, and who scores off of them with the stolen possession.

A peek at the 5A Division II Region III bracket

Lake Creek Vs. Texas High
Fort Bend Willowridge or Galena Park Vs. Nederland
Marshall or Nacogdoches Vs. Huntsville
Barber's Hill Vs. Fort Bend Willowridge or Galena Park
Port Neches-Groves Vs. Fort Bend Marshall
Whitehouse Vs. Montgomery
Houston Sterling Vs. Crosby
A&M Consolidated Vs. Pine Tree

The winner of the FB WIllowridge Vs. Galena Park game will host Barber's Hill in the first round.... while the loser will have to travel to Nederland.  So that's a HUGE game.  Nederland is not an easy place to win.

The winner of the Nac/Marshall game will will get to Travel to Huntsville to take on the Hornets (game will likely be in Madisonville).

PNG will take on FB Marshall..... talk about a tough first round draw.

Whitehouse has a tough task ahead of them going to Montgomery to take on a Bears team that gave Huntsville all they wanted.

Pine Tree will likely be hosting A&M Consolidated.... who might be the best third place team in the state at (8-2).

Tough playoff rowing ahead for 9-5A. 

TBH..... all of them will probably be underdogs with the exception of Texarkana.... and I don't think Lake Creek is an easy out.

Well I guess we lose since the visiting bands aren't traveling!!:)

We moved our secondary around for TH game, One of the Jones brothers moved from Safety to Corner for the TH game and went one on one most of the night and played well. This game will come down to which offense can execute and not put the defense in a bad position.

Huntsville plays their home games at SHSU and the stadium is currently being renovated.  The last 2 home games have been in Madisonville.  Not sure where the playoff game will be, but it won’t be in Huntsville.

Mount Pleasant basketball is now 2-0 after a win over Lufkin. They were ranked #14 in 5A before the game.

If anyone wants to watch any games. It is on Mount Pleasant basketball youtube page. 

They play Royce City tomorrow.

Nice turf field that isn't far and since Madisonville is 4A, they are done for the season. Next closest turf field would be Willis (I think) and they are playoff bound...

I’ve been to madisonville for a playoff game and showed mav years ago some of their facilities. The gym looks really nice.

 

I was just confused why the game was in madisonville. I didn’t know until Eazymoney said something about the renovations at Sam.

I watched MP and Lufkin on Friday.  MP has excellent guard play, but they don't have much size. (Maybe they have some still on the football field?) Lufkin has a Soph Big Man that put up 27 points on them in the paint.  They shouldn't have much trouble in District, but the lack of size may hurt their playoff run when they run up against the Dallas area schools.  Very fun team to watch!

10-5A II seeds pretty well set.  Lake Creek could force a 3 way tie for 2nd.   Tie breaker rule is positive points with 18 max.  Lake Creek would have to beat Montgomery by 18 points to change the seedings.  Not too likely.

So true.  All these kids have missed a big part of the high school experience.  Obviously some schools more than others.  It is tough thinking how this has devastated some special times and not just on an athletic level. I hope this all will some day be a distant.....but dark.....memory.

The new Maverick Pavilion is OPEN for business!   They held its first practice under the roof Monday & the Maverick Freshmen worked out Tuesday preparing for the final game of the season on Thursday. Such an great facility that will benefit so many of our students!

Found a very detailed playoff scenario for 8-5A.  Magnolia, Lufkin, and College Station should all be favored to win, but then again, the outcome is meaningless for Magnolia and CS.  If they are resting players, then NC and MW certainly could win and will be motivated to do so.  Should be interesting to see how it plays out.
