After handing Hemphill its first loss of 2020 last Saturday, the New Waverly Bulldogs are on the verge of their first playoff berth since 2016.
New Waverly (4-2, 2-1), which sits a half-game back of second place, will head to Corrigan-Camden (1-6, 0-3) on Friday night with a chance to inch closer to this accomplishment. Corrigan is still seeking its first league win, but has stayed competitive due to a defense that ranks second behind district leader Newton with 25.6 points allowed per game.
Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
TRINITY AIMS TO BOOST PLAYOFF HOPES
The Trinity Tigers (3-4, 1-2) reinserted themselves back into the playoff hunt with a win over Huntington last week. Now, they’ll look to keep the momentum going on Friday night at Elkhart (0-8, 0-4).
Trinity is in a tie with Westwood for the fourth and final playoff spot in District 9-3A, Division I. The teams sit one game back of Coldspring Oakhurst, which defeated Trinity on Oct. 2 and is set to face Westwood this week.
