The state-ranked San Saba Armadillos won their Regional Championship against De Leon and now it’s on to the State semi-finals where the 4 regional champions will play it off. San Saba, the region 2 champ will be pitted against the region 1 champ, New Deal.
That game will be played at Shotwell Stadium in Abilene on Friday with a kickoff set for 7pm.
The game could go either way with both San Saba and New Deal having high scoring offenses. This is the first, really-really good, team that San Saba has been tested with. Some football watchers have San Saba as number two and New Deal as number 3 in the 2A-1division, others reverse the rankings, so it is going to be a game worth watching.
Our best wishes go out to our neighbors in San Saba. This is their best football team in years and they deserve the win.
In the other regions, it will be region 3 San Augustine against the region 4 champ, Mason. Mason beat Refugio yesterday in the Alamodome to earn the trip to the Semis. Mason is ranked by most as the number 1 team in the division.
