Well we have reached the final week of the regular season and as expected there is a lot of drama surrounding it. Win-and-in games, what division a team will go to, are a plenty around the state. Let’s take a look at the most intriguing games around the state in this final week.
Pflugerville Connally v Georgetown– Georgetown started the season off on a hot start and was considered a top 20 team in the state until they lost back-to-back games to Rouse and Cedar Park. Connally has already locked up a playoff berth with their only loss of the season to Cedar Park. This game also can decide the fate of Cedar Park and what division they are headed to, if Connally wins they look to be headed to Division II, but if Georgetown wins they will be in Division I.
Mansfield Lake Ridge vs Waxahachie– Waxahachie was ranked in the top 10 just three weeks ago but three straight district losses have the Indians in danger of missing the playoffs. Senior standout and TCU commit WR Jalen Reagor looks to build off last week’s 105-yard, two touchdown performance. Lake Ridge has lost two in a row and they are going to need their junior QB Jason Bean to be on the top of his game if they want to advance. It’s fitting that District 10-5A arguably the toughest in the state comes down to this game.
Euless Trinity vs Flower Mound Marcus– Trinity’s consecutive playoff appearance streak is at 18 and without a win against Marcus, that’s where the streak will end. A stunning overtime loss to TC Byron Nelson really put the Trojans backs against the wall. The last two games Trinity has won, their opponents have scored seven points each, the games they’ve lost, their opponents have scored 21 and 39. The winner of this game will get the reward of making the playoffs and facing Allen in the bi-district round.
Morton Ranch vs Katy Seven Lakes– This is a win-and-in for Morton Ranch as they are in a fourth place tie with Strake Jesuit. Morton plays on Thursday, but if they lose to Seven Lakes, they’ll have to sweat out the Strake Jesuit game on Friday.
El Paso High vs Burges– Burges is coming off an upset win over Chapin, who is considered one of the best teams in El Paso. So if you believe in momentum, then Burges has that in their favor. El Paso High this year hasn’t done anything flashy, but they have a good running back duo in Nick Porras and Shane Rodriguez that average around 150 yards per game between the two of them.
