Lindale 1-2 2-6 193 322

Corsicana 0-3 1-6 218 322

Jacksonville 0-3 0-8 182 377

 

Jacksonville playoff scenario: With wins over Lindale this week and Corsicana next week, the Tribe can earn the final playoff berth out of the league.

Bullard 1-3 3-4 118 215

Gladewater 1-3 3-5 158 231

Spring Hill 0-5 2-7 134 328

 

Bullard playoff scenario: The Panthers would need to upset No. 1-ranked Gilmer this week and then defeat Spring Hill next week, plus have Henderson lose its final two games (vs. Kilgore, at Gladewater) in order to make the playoffs.

 

District 19-3A Dist. W-L All W-L PF PA

Fairfield 3-0 9-0 522 86

Groesbeck 0-3 3-6 224 398

 

Rusk playoff scenario: The winner of Rusk's game against Groesbeck (7:30 p.m. Friday in Groesbeck) will secure the final post season bid from 19-3A.

Jefferson 1-2 4-4 162 173

Sabine 0-3 1-7 155 286

 

Troup playoff scenario: Tigers can advance past the regular season as long as they at least stay tied with Jefferson because Troup beat Jefferson in the head-to-head meeting and owns the tie breaker. Jefferson closes the regular season with White Oak and Tatum, while the Tigers end with Harmony and Sabine. Schedule-wise, Troup has a much easier road.

Cushing 0-3 1-7 88 314

 

Alto playoff scenario: Winner of Friday's meeting between the 'Jackets and San Augustine will clinch a playoff spot. Should Alto lose, and Shelbyville defeat Grapeland this week, Alto and Shelbyville would be tied for the final playoff slot. Alto and Shelbyville meet on Nov. 8 in Alto.

CH-Trinity Christ. 1-4 4-4 246 227

Prince of Peace 1-4 4-4 219 224

Dallas Shelton 0-5 0-7 57 288

 

Brook Hill playoff scenario: The Guard have punch their ticket into the playoffs regardless of the outcome of this week's game against Grace Community. Brook Hill was scheduled to have faced Prince of Peace next week, but Prince of Peace has disbanded its team due to a lack of healthy players, thus forfeiting the remainder of its games.
