The De Leon defense was able to hold the explosive Riesel offense to their lowest scoring total since early October.

The Armadillos literally weathered the storm last week in their double overtime win against Celeste 62-56.

The game began with a one hour weather delay, but that didn’t stop the Dillos determination, especially their junior RB Eli Salinas.

The Hornets dominated Evadale last week 56-0 behind potent rushing attack of their own.

Muenster had five players finish the game with rushing touchdowns and quarterback Parker McGrew was 10-12,175, 2TD in the victory.

The game will be a battle of defending state champions, now that Mart made the drop from 2A DI to 2A DII. Muenster defeated Tenaha last year 27-20 for the DII title, while Mart defeated Refugio for the 34-21 for the DI title.

Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m. Thursday at The Star in Frisco.

#4 La Vega (11-2) vs #2 Argyle (13-0)

The Pirates are on a mission and last week the team standing in their way was the Paris Wildcats. La Vega held a 24-7 lead early in the fourth quarter and finished with a 38-20 victory.

La Vega has outscored their playoff opponents 167-41. The Pirates defense was able to force three turnovers last week, two fumbles and one interception.

Junior quarterback Bo Hogeboom got his lone touchdown throw of the game with :25 left on the clock. Hogeboom hit Cole Kirkpatrick on a 28-yard strike to seal the victory for Argyle.

These two heavyweights have been on a collision course all season and La Vega is determined to avenge their 31-29 loss to the Eagles in week 2.
