Sunday, 9th December 2018 - 5:25PM
San Augustine (12-2) vs Tenaha (10-3)

The Wolves were able to force three turnovers last week in their 29-27 victory over Garrison. The San Augustine offense relied on a stable of running backs to carry the load, led by junior Tijay Thomas.

Thomas finished the game with 27 carries for 133-yards and one touchdown; he was also 5 of 7, 104, 2TD through the air. Junior WR JaVarious Miller hauled in both touchdown receptions.

The Tigers sent shockwaves across the state last week with their 35-14 victory over previously undefeated #7 Carlisle.

Tenaha is no stranger to the playoffs and that experience can be displayed throughout their roster.

Junior QB Hayden Jenkins Jr. (135-of-228, 2,509 yards, 28TDs) and senior WR Jay Lloyd Sr. (219 carries, 2,132 yards, 25TDs; 21 receptions, 3TDs) have been a nightmare for defenses this season.

The game will be a rematch from non-district play, where Tenaha won 14-0. Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m. Thursday at Dragon Stadium in Nacogdoches.

Malakoff (10-2) vs Atlanta (8-5)

The Tigers crashed the party for #9 Gladewater last week 35-7, it was their second victory in a row over a top 10 opponent.

Malakoff has improved on the defensive end in all three playoff games. During bi-district they gave up 35-points to Pottsboro, during area they gave up 21-points to Jefferson, and last week just 7.

The Rabbits forced four turnovers last week, that led to a 38-14 victory over Mount Vernon.

Atlanta had two running backs finish the game with over 100-yards on the ground. Caleb Hamilton rushed for 105-yards, while Jawan King had 100-yards and three touchdowns.

The game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Friday at Pine Tree Stadium in Longview.

Henderson (9-4) vs #1 Carthage (13-0)

The Lions used a goal line stand to defeat district foe Van 21-20 last week. Henderson was defeated by Van during district 21-20 and returned the favor this go around.

Keshoyn Alexander was the only Lion to score an offensive touchdown and finished the game with 7 carries for 90-yards. Pedro Garza provided the other Henderson score on a 86-yard pick-six.

The Bulldogs faced their toughest test of the season last week, but survived Midlothian Heritage 50-49 in double overtime.

Carthage called on QB Gunner Capps to lead the charge, and he delivered. Capps finished the game 24 of 36, 405-yards, 5TDs.

These two rivals are meeting in the quarterfinals for the third consecutive season and Henderson is looking to advance this time.

The game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Friday at Lobo Stadium in Longview.

John Tyler (10-2) vs #2 Highland Park (13-0)

Cujo used a big game from senior QB Devlen Woods to defeat Frisco Lone Star last week 31-13.

Woods finished the game with one passing touchdown, one rushing touchdown, and 200-yards of total offense.

The Scots destroyed Mansfield Timberview last 52-0 and extended their winning streak to 28-games in the process.

Junior QB Chandler Morris was 17 of 23, 266-yards, and 3TDs through the air and he had 5 carries for 22-yards and one touchdown.

The key to this game will be whichever defense can force the most turnovers and punts. Kickoff is set for 1:00 p.m. Saturday at The Star in Frisco.

#4 Longview (13-0) vs Spring Westfield (12-1)

The Lobos pulled away from Austin Vandegrift in the second half last week and delivered the Vipers their only loss on the season 56-28.

Junior QB Haynes King showed why colleges are lining up for his services, with a five touchdown performance. King was 13 of 16, 248-yards, 3TDs through the air and carried the ball 16 times for 93-yards and two touchdowns.

The Mustangs ended the season for Mesquite Horn 35-16 behind a rushing attack that put up 311-yards on the ground.

Senior RB Rayshawn James (15 carries, 171-yards, 2TDs) set the tone and the Westfield defense was able to come up with two clutch interceptions.

The game is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. Saturday at WISD Stadium in Waco.
