Defacto state title game. 

I don't even remember what it was like before the now annual Gunter vs Canadian state semi-final matchup.  Should be another good one. Gunter is averaging 49.6 per game to defenses that give up 2

For some reason I see this being a low scoring game 

If both teams show up, I’m thinking a 31-28, 35-28 type game. However, if one team comes out flat, I can see it getting out of hand. Both offenses are too explosive.

Region 3 has Pewitt, DF, Waskom, EF, Newton. 
Region 1 has Canadian, Spearman, Abernathy, Childress, Idalou.

Region 2 has GT, Holliday. 
 

region 3 might be a little bit tougher than 2, but not much. GT would have come out of Region 3 three of the last 5 years.

 

Do you really think they would have beaten Newton in 2017 or 2018. Newton was loaded and beat Gilmer in 2018-4a div 2, West Orange -Stark 4 a div 2 in 2018, beat Silsbee  4a div 2 in 2017 and 2018 and all 3a div 2 teams them two years.

It's always funny how some folks analyze these games, and I'm the world's worst!  For instance, if they come out strong, they will play really good and have a chance to win, but if they don't play very well and give up a ton of points, then they could possibly lose, but if they both play hard and neither team has any turnovers and the team that is expected to win, does what it is supposed to do, they could win in a close match where neither teams scores many points, but if they score more than the other team, they should win. I'm thinking the winner will play again next week, maybe...

No sir. I was including this year. Nobody was beating Newton when they went back to back. I do believe that last year, the year Gunter beat Boling, and this year, that Canadian and Gunter were the two best teams in state.

I agree mostly, one bad call by officials in Daingerfield cost us that game but  that part of life, I mean referees are human also but Newton was pretty salty last year also and very young this year. Gunter and Canadian are quality proven programs with good sportsmanship and since I like both schools, I don't have a favorite-they are both well coached and extremely good.

Watching film on Gunter and it looks like they can throw the ball now. Crazy how many different kids can run the ball effectively for them. #2 runs the offense to perfection. Got a ton of quick/shifty ball carriers. Quick to the ball on defense and good in coverage.

Canadian looks to be the bigger team size wise. They are very balanced offensively. The Quarterback has a good arm and is accurate. Offensive line blocks good and the backs hit the holes hard. Defense is very good and flys to the ball. 
 

Overall this is going to be a dang good game and wish I could watch it in person. I think Gunter takes it by 7. Good luck to both squads and I agree with the rankings, these two teams are definitely the top two teams in the state.

Being a Gunter fan, I’m pulling for them. It’s hard to see how they can be stopped. However, I know that is the sentiment of Canadian fans as well. I don’t even want to make a prediction here. Gonna be a dandy! Go Tigers!

I agree. Need Gunter to be slid to region 3!

I think they need to pick the semi matchups out of as hat.  A great team out of Region 1 or 2 has been left out of the finals 4 years in a row and will again.

I just realized that in 3a div2 ,  3 of the 4 teams left are triple option type teams. The defenses  will need to tackle all the opposition to get the right one. I had a coach that told me to tackle the water boy to show everyone I meant business. I didn't because I already had a personnel foul on me for biting in a pile up.

Yep, and a great team in region I or II got left out of the finals.  If you think about it the fact that I always meets II  and III always meets IV, there are really only 2 regions and Gunter vs Canadian will be battling out for region I while Waskom and Franklin will be trying to win region II.  And the 2 regions play each other in the final.

????? Are  you saying Newton shouldn't have been in the state finals those two years ,it seems that is what you are saying .Since Newton won state back to back, that statement don't hold water. I remember 3 years in a row Newton didn't get out of region because Daingerfield was in region 3 and winning state. Remember when Cameron was winning state a lot, same thing, they were in region 3. Now, if you want to come on down to region 3,we ain't scared. Win or lose we don't back down, it is in our purple blood.

Dont think thats what was meant at all.  I think he was meaning that it would be better if regions 1&2 , and 3&4 didn't always play in the semi finals.  He was saying that region 1&2 games may have actually been the championship, and the team that lost that game may have been better than the team that played in the finals.  I think he knows Newton was the best team those 2 years.

Well that was a dumb statement that could be argued almost every year. Both years Waskom won state the semifinal games were tougher than the championship games.

I have never seen Canadian come out “flat” 

they may get beat but they seldom come out flat! Don’t know if they still do, but they would break the huddle, run to the line, be set a second and snap the ball. High intensity

Yes sir. Our NASCAR offense runs 14-16 seconds between snaps
