CLASS 4A DIVISION II
Bi-district Playoff
Frenship
at Canyon

7 p.m., Kimbrough Memorial Stadium, Canyon

Radio: KTTU 104.3 FM (Lubbock)

Records: Frenship 9-1; Canyon 8-2

How they got here: Frenship captured the District 4-4A championship; Canyon finished third in District 3-4A behind Amarillo and Randall

Players to watch: Frenship, RB D’Maujeric Tucker is the leading Class 4A rusher in the area after gaining 1,868 yards and scoring 25 touchdowns. Canyon, QB Blake Weaver has thrown for 1,316 yards and 13 touchdowns to lead the Eagles.

About the teams: Not too long ago — the last two season in fact — the Tigers and Eagles were district opponents. The teams split the two meetings as district foes, with Canyon winning 14-7 at Frenship in 2010 then the Tigers returning the favor, 30-10, at Kimbrough Memorial Stadium. The teams have six common opponents this year, with each team going 5-1, both losing to Amarillo High. Frenship head coach Brad Davis is 4-1 in playoff openers in his six years at the helm of the Tigers, and Frenship has won 10 of its last 12 playoff openers. The last time Frenship lost in the bi-district round two straight years was 1997-98 (Frenship lost to Wichita Falls Rider last season in the bi-district round). This will be Canyon’s seventh playoff appearance in the last eight years, but the Eagles have not made it past bi-district since 2006.

What’s next: The winner gets either El Paso Bowie (6-4) or Clint Horizon (8-2) in the area round.

 

CLASS 3A DIVISION II
Bi-district Playoff
Shallowater
vs. Dalhart

6 p.m., Dick Bivins Stadium, Amarillo

Radio: KYMI 98.5 FM (Lubbock)

Records: Shallowater 10-0; Dalhart 7-3

How they got here: Shallowater captured the District 2-3A championship; Dalhart finished second in District 1-3A.

Players to watch: Shallowater, RB Jarek Black returned last week from having surgery to repair a broken hand. He missed two weeks but has still rushed for 2,121 yards and 27 touchdowns. Dalhart, RB Dominic Baca rushed for yards and touchdowns on the season for the run-oriented Golden Wolves.

About the teams: Shallowater was projected to finish out of the running for a playoff spot due to the heavy losses due to graduation from a year ago. But the Mustangs rebuilt quickly with Black the engine driving the truck. But as he missed two games, other players stepped up to keep the Mustangs unbeaten, and Shallowater has shown some semblance of a passing game recently. Dalhart looked to be on its way to the district title until Perryton jumped up and beat the Golden Wolves in the season finale to claim a share of the district crown. Dalhart is very heavily run-oriented with a ground game that has chewed up more than 2,800 yards this season. The Golden Wolves have qualified for the playoffs in seven straight seasons but have made it past the bi-district round just once since 1991.

What’s next: The winner gets either Monahans (6-4) or Pecos (6-4) in the area round.

 

CLASS 1A DIVISION I
Bi-district Playoff
New Deal
vs. Panhandle

7:30 p.m., Bobcat Stadium, Dimmitt

Radio: None

Records: New Deal 6-4; Panhandle 6-4

How they got here: New Deal is the second seed from District 2-1A after tying for the district championship. Panhandle finished third in District 1-1A behind Stratford and Sunray.

Players to watch: New Deal, RB Demetrius Jackson came on late in the season after VJ Gamez went down with an injury to post 781 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns. Panhandle, QB Tyler Hall is a very prolific passer, throwing for 2,576 yards and 29 touchdowns on the season.

About the teams: The season started horribly for the tradition-rich Lions, who last three of their first four. But beginning with a 25-point win over Sudan, the Lions won five straight before falling to Sundown in the regular-season finale. New Deal lost leading rusher VJ Gamez (881 rushing yards, 13 TDs) right at the beginning of the winning streak to an ACL tear, but Jackson, LaDareon Hunter (296 yards, 5 TDs and Hunter Harper (231 yards, 5 TDs) have done a good job taking up the slack. Panhandle put up some impressive numbers this season despite being in a district with two 1A powerhouses in Stratford and Sunray. Travis Hammer caught 52 passes for 1,151 yards and 16 touchdowns this season.

What’s next: The winner gets Seymour (8-2) in the area round.

 

CLASS 1A DIVISION II
Bi-district Playoff
Ralls
vs. Bovina

7:30 p.m., Lobo Stadium, Levelland

Radio: None

Records: Ralls 7-3; Bovina 4-6

How they got here: Ralls finished in a three-way tie for the District 4-1A, Division II championship with Seagraves and Crosbyton. The Jackrabbits took the second seed by virtue of tiebreaker. Bovina finished third in District 3-1A, Division II.

Players to watch: Ralls, RB Jonathan Van Gundy has led the Jackrabbits attack for much of the season, rushing for 1,270 yards and 10 touchdowns. Bovina, RB Marco Terrones was a workhorse for the Mustangs leading into the season finale against Springlake-Earth, having rushed for 990 yards and 13 touchdowns.

About the teams: Ralls was headed for a district championship until a one-point loss to rival Crosbyton derailed the Jackrabbits just a bit and allowed for the tri-championship. Van Gundy is not the only formidable rushing threat the Mustangs must face, however. While Van Gundy led area 1A rushers, Kaleb Reese as a close third with 1,1019 yards and 11 touchdowns. Terrones is the go-to person for the Mustangs after he rushed for more than 1,300 yards last season. Bovina had a chance to claim a share of the district championship but lost to Springlake-Earth in the regular-season finale.

What’s next: The winner gets state-ranked Wellington (10-0) in the area round.

 

CLASS 1A DIVISION II
Bi-district Playoff
Sudan
vs. Crosbyton

7:30 p.m., Eagle Stadium, Acuff

Radio: None

Records: Sudan 8-2; Crosbyton 5-5

How they got here: Sudan claimed a share of the District 3-1A, Division II title and finished as the second seed. Crosbyton is one of three teams to share the District 4-1A, Division II championship and is the third seed.

Players to watch: Sudan, WR Dayton Fisher has 26 catches for 503 yards and six touchdowns, the go-to receiver for the Hornets in the passing game. Crosbyton, RB Nathan Childers emerged at the beginning of the season as a key cog in the Chiefs running game, rushing for 882 yards and 11 touchdowns.

About the teams: Both teams had high expectations going into the season. Sudan was motivated by just missing the playoffs last year despite finishing 7-3, while Crosbyton was coming off one of its best seasons in recent history at 8-4. Sudan maintained consistency throughout the year, losing only to playoff-bound teams New Deal and Springlake-Earth. Crosbyton, having to replace several skill position players, struggled early and at one point was 2-4 before entering district, where the Chiefs won three of four, including the upset of Ralls two weeks ago. The Hornets’ balance and ability to run and throw the ball could be their edge.

What’s next: The winner gets Gruver (8-2) in the area round.
