Week 11 Games To Watch in Central Texas
Saturday, 10th November 2018 - 5:44PM
Academy (4-5-1, 3-2) at Rockdale (6-3, 3-2)

Last week the Bumblebee’s had a bye to rest up and prepare for the regular season finale against the defending state champion Rockdale Tigers.

Academy will need another defensive performance like they had in their 38-13 victory over Jarrell in week 9, to help them secure a victory this week.

Academy forced six interceptions against Jarrell, two by Dashawn Robinson and three by Corbin Bush.

Rockdale defeated Jarrell last week 56-17, behind a stellar performance by sophomore quarterback Jace Robinson.

Robinson was 7 of 12 for 329 yards and five touchdowns against the Cougars.

Three different Tiger receivers hauled in touchdowns, Quentin Hughes 1TD, Kesean Raven 2TD, and Ross Loth 2TD.

So what’s at stake in this game?

Playoff seeding is on the line when the Tigers and Bumblebees square off on Friday.

The loser of this game will earn the fourth place position of district 10-3A D1 and will have to play the district 9-3A D1 champion in bi-district action.

Robinson (5-4, 3-2) at Connally (6-3, 3-2)

The Rockets are coming off a blowout loss to Fairfield 46-13. Robinson’s defense allowed 498 yards of total offense and the Rockets trailed 24-0 at the end of the first quarter.

Offensively the Rockets struggled as well. Quarterback Jordan Rogers threw two interceptions and just one touchdown.

Connally is coming off a bye week, but in the Cadets previous game they were blown out by Fairfield also 44-9.

The Cadets are 5-0 at home this season and will look to use that home field advantage to secure a victory of Robinson this week.

So what’s at stake in this game?

The Rockets and Cadets are both in the game playoffs, but seeding is on the line.

The loser of this game will enter the playoffs as a fourth seed in district 8-4A DII, and will face the district 7-4A DII champion in the bi-district round of the playoffs.

Teague (5-4, 4-1) at West (6-3, 4-1)

After dropping their first district 9-3A DI to Grandview 35-13, the Teague Lions have been strong down the stretch.

Teague dominated Maypearl last week 44-0, behind the rushing attack of RB Azaya Patrick. Patrick finished the game with 161 yards and two touchdowns, while averaging 16 yards per carry.

The only district loss for West came against Whitney 13-7 in week eight. The Trojans had a bye last week to help them prepare for the district finale.

The Trojans were able to defeat Grandview 42-41 in overtime during their first district game.

So what’s what's at stake in this game?

A Teague victory along with a Whitney win over Groesbeck will put the Lions in second place and West fourth place. A Teague victory along with a Groesbeck win over Whitney will put the Lions in second place and West in third place.

A West victory will Trojans in first place and Teague in third place, regardless of the outcome of the Groesbeck and Whitney game.

De Leon (6-3, 4-0) at San Saba (9-0, 4-0)

De Leon had no trouble with Goldthwaite last week, as they routed the Eagles 77-7. The closest district 7-2A DI game the Bearcats have played came in a 21-14 victory over Hico.

San Saba was able to cruise past Crawford 41-14 last week, in district play the Armadillos are outscoring their opponents 230-41.

The all-time series between these two programs has been neck-and-neck, with San Saba leading 12-11. De Leon has won the last three matchups by a combined score of 119-13.

So what’s at stake in this game?

The winner of this game will be crowned champion of district 7-2A DI, while the loser will be runner up.
