Games This Week

WEST ORANGE-STARK over HOUSTON BROOKSHIRE-ROYAL—The Mustangs have had two weeks to sort out some of their problem areas and should be ready to start focusing on the games that really count after this non-district road game Friday night.

BEAUMONT CENTRAL over LITTLE CYPRESS-MAURICEVILLE—The Battlin’ Bears continue to play better each week and will surprise a few teams before the District 20-4A schedule concludes. The Jags had better not take this team lightly or they will end up on the short side of the scoreboard.
