The bi-district round of the Texas High School Football is in the books with the area round coming up Thanksgiving weekend.
Paris – The Rivercrest Rebels make history with the program’s first playoff win in 51 years beating Hawkins 57-13. The Rebels prepare to face Lovelady on Saturday at Athens on KOYN 93.9 at 7:30. It was a rough weekend for the rest of the Red River Valley. The Paris Wildcats fall to Crandall, 28-7. The Clarksville Tigers are eliminated by 9th ranked Bremond, 36-6. Holliday shuts out Cooper, 48-0 and the Honey Grove Warriors lose to Big Sandy, 14-49.
Mount Pleasant – The Mt Vernon Tiger, Rivercrest Rebels, Daingerfield Tigers and Gilmer Buckeyes light up the scoreboard to advance. Mt Vernon beat Redwater 49-26. Rivercrest crushes Hawkins, 57-13. Daingerfield runs away from Lone Oak, 41-17, while Gilmer wins a shootout over Diboll, 55-40. The Hughes Springs Mustangs used a hungry defense to win in the first round shutting out Mineola, 27-0. Meanwhile, the Paul Pewitt Brahmas see their season come to an end at the hands of Harmony, 42-0 and the Pittsburg Pirates are eliminated at the hands of Rusk, 48-7.
Sulphur Springs – The Mt Vernon Tigers, Cumby Trojans, and Commerce Tigers use big nights on offense to advance to the next round. Mt Vernon lights up Redwater to win, 49-26. The Cumby Trojans used a stingy defense as well to shut out Hubbard, 40-0 while Commerce edges out White Oak in a thriller, 35-34. Meanwhile, the Sulphur Springs Wildcat football team sees their season come to an end at the hands of Lovejoy, 45-29. The Cooper Bulldogs are blanked by Holliday, 48-0 and the Lone Oak Buffalo are eliminated at the hands of the Daingerfield Tigers, 41-17.
Last night the Dallas Cowboys get trounced again. This time by the Philadelphia Eagles, 37-9. The offense struggled all night with the quarterback, Dak Prescott, throwing three interceptions and losing a fumble. The defense would be next to go when Philly put up 30 second-half points including giving up 215 rushing yards. The Cowboys fall to 5-4 on the season.
The Dallas Mavericks notch their healthiest win of the season on Saturday, 111-79 over the Milwaukee Bucks. Wesley Matthews had the hot hand for the Mavs with 22 points and eight assists. JJ Barea added 20 off the bench. The Mavs still have plenty of work to do in spite of the win with a 3-14 record on the season. Dallas will take on the Boston Celtics tonight at 7:30.
And there may not be much shakeup in the College Football Playoff Rankings, set to be released tomorrow. The top four win convincingly, including the fourth-ranked Oklahoma Sooners beating Kansas, 41-3. Undefeated Wisconsin makes a strong case with a 24-10 win over 24th ranked Michigan.
