Friday Night Football
This week, the Cobras are the only team playing as Edna and Ganado both have an open week before they play thier Bi-District playoff game.
The Cobras (8-1) will be playing a mostly meaningless game as they travel to Goliad (0-8) to finish the regular season.
Industrial enters the game ranked 15 and Goliad 88.
The Cobras have allowed 186 while scoring 371. Goliad has allowed 242 and scored 188.
All of the stats in this game favors the Cobras, they just have to make sure to not look past Goliad. Of course a loss will change nothing, but the best case scenario is for the Cobras to go in, get a big lead early and then have the ability to bring in back-ups to ensure the starters will be healthy for the playoffs.
Looking to the playoffs, Edna and Industrial will head south to face a Corpus Christi area team in the first round of the playoffs. The district is a jumbled mess so neither of our local schools will have an idea of who they will face until the football games tonight have been played. Ganado went out and took care of Flatonia and locked up the number two playoff position. Looking ahead to the Bi-District playoff game, the Indians again may have a really long travel for their game this year. They will face the third place team out of district 14. Ozona and Johnson City play tonight. The loser of that game will finish third and will be the Indians Bi-District opponent.
The Cobras volleyball team is making a run through the playoffs again. They have already defeated Karnes City and Blanco and will now face Poth in the Regional quarter-final playoff round today at 6 p.m. in Woodsboro.
Looking ahead, if the Cobras win tonight, they will face either Orange Grove or Santa Gertrudis Academy in the Regional Semi-Final round to be played on November 9 or 10. On the other side of the Regional bracket, familiar foe Goliad won last night and already sits in the Regional Semi-Final slot. They will face the winner of Columbus and Ingram Moore.
The Regional Cross Country Meet will be held at Texas A&M Corpus Christi on November 9 and 10.
