4A Division 1 And 2 3rd Round Games
Dayton vs. Rosenberg Terry
From here on out games will be good ones, this one will be no exception. Dayton continues to roll with A.J. Dugat and Cody Green. Dayton is coming off a big win over Elgin last week and Terry defeated Sharpstown. Terry is lead by RB DeMarcus Bufford. The Rangers will certainly have to play their A game on defense to slow the Broncos down this week and avoid Turnovers to win. Dayton will be to much again this week.
Dayton 35 Terry 14
Beaumont Central vs. Angleton
The Jags from Beaumont Central continue to roll and now have made it to the State Quarterfinals. They will now face a very good Angleton team. The Wildcats are led by Running backs Jake Velasquez and Michael Terry. Angleton ends up winning the District and looks mighty good. Central defeated Lockhart last week and the Jags Defense will once again have to step up if the Jags are to advance. I think Angleton will be to much.
Angleton 30 Central 20
3A Division 2 3rd Round Games
West Orange-Stark vs. Gilmer
The one everyone has been talking about. What a showdown this will be between the State's most powerful offenses and the State's top Defenses. Very hard game to predict. This game may come down to turnovers and who has the ball last. Gilmer did give up over 500 yards last week to Mexia and they will not be able to do it this week against WO-S. WOS is coming off a big win over Caldwell led by RB Quintavious Garrett who put on a show, Gilmer defeated Mexia in a game where Mexia nearly came back in the 2nd half. I'm taking WOS in a close one.
WO-S 28 Gilmer 24
Carthage vs. Rockdale
Carthage another team along with WO-S and Gilmer who will be fighting to get to the State Championship. Carthage defeated Lorena 49-14 last week in dominant fashion led by RB Jarvin Robinson . Rockdale defeated Cleveland 17-8 behind WR Joe Sanders. The Rockdale Defense really stepped up slowing the Cleveland rushing attack down. Carthage speed and size will over match Rockdale in this one.
Carthage 40 Rockdale 21
2A Round 3 Games
Kirbyville vs. Arp
This could easily decide the 2A D1 State Championship. Kirbyville led by QB Aaron Hazlewood defeated Anahuac last week 43-20. Arp defeated Jefferson 21-7. This is probably the 2 top teams in class 2A. Big question here is will Arp be able to stop Kirbyville's speed and rushing attack? Arp has a very good Defense allowing limited yards leading up to this contest. I'll give the edge to Kirbyville.
Kirbyville 28 Arp 21
