3A Area Playoff Games

West Orange-Stark vs. Caldwell

Caldwell and their Slot-T Offense will go head to head with State Ranked WO-S this Friday Night in the Woodlands. Caldwell had a bye this week and WO-S is coming off a big win over Coldspring. Caldwell running back Kyson Woolverton has rumbled for 1,352 yards and 13 TDs on 185 carries. Fellow back Nelson Scott has 1,032 yards and 18 TDs on 115 carries. Other backs include Randall Lester (44-533-8) and Kendrin Shephers (64-443-4) also have nice running numbers. WO-S enters the game pumping out 371.1 yards a contest, led by senior quarterback Ortavious Hypolite. WO-S Defense should help them advance to the 3rd round.

WO-S 28 Caldwell 14

Silsbee vs. Navasota

The high powered Offense of Navasota will take on the stingy Defense of Silsbee Friday Night at Sam Houston State. TB Dextar Pratt continues to roll up the numbers. Can Silsbee slow them down? Going to be tough but Silsbee's strength has been their Defense. The rattlers will be to much in this one.

Navasota 42 Silsbee 20

Cleveland vs. Rockdale

As expected Rockdale made the Playoffs this season with 11 returning starters from last season. WR Joe Sanders and QB Mark Drake will lead the Tigers. Cleveland comes in as Champions of their District and big winners over Hardin Jeferson. In the end Cleveland will have to much speed.

Cleveland 28 Rockdale 21

Class 2A Area Playoff Games

Kirbyville vs. Anahuac

Kirbyville defeated a tough Corrigan Canden team last week and continue their quest for the D1 2A Title. 2 SE Texas teams will battle in the area round this week. Anahuac had a bye last week and after winning District they will have the tough task of facing the Wildcats this week. I still have Kirbyville as the D1 2A Champ and the Wildcats will advance this week.

Kirbyville 42 Anahuac 20

Newton vs. East Chambers

Another battle between 2 SE Texas teams in the Area Round. Newton had the 1 district loss to Kirbyville but since then continues to rack up the points. East Chambers gets in after defeating Buna last week. Once again speed will come into play here and Newton takes it.

Newton 40 EC 20

Hardin vs. New Waverly

I took notice of New Waverly back in the 7 on 7 season when they defeated Celina, and you bet ther're still alive. Hardin continues to stay alive but this week looks like NW will be to much.

New Waverly 27 Hardin 14
