Corsicana Playoff Action

.

Corsicana is looking like the place to be this weekend for football playoff action if you can't make it to Texas Stadium or the Alamo Dome.   Tiger Stadium will hold a 1A, a 3A and two 4A playoff games this weekend.

Why is Corsicana attracting games that would normally be held in Waco?  Location, cost and a top-flight facility are all key factors.  

The field is built in a bowl so the wind is usually not a factor.   The administrators have made it very cost effective and it is a great meeting point for East Texas, Dallas and Waco schools.  

This weeks games open up with a bang when #18 Highland Park (11-1) takes on #25 Hewitt Midway (11-1) at 2 p.m. Friday.  This game will bring in a standing room only crowd.  Friday night has a 3A Regional matchup.  10th Ranked Carthage (10-2) will take on #15 Rockdale (9-2).

Saturday at 2 p.m. is a matchup of two Top 10 4A teams.  Sixth ranked Longview will play #3 Dallas Carter. These are football powerhouses that won multiple playoff games in 5A last year. Saturday night concludes with a 1A Quarterfinal matchup between #25 Alto and #8 Mart.

 
Playoff games will be played at Tiger Stadium this weekend:
1A State Quarterfinal

Division 1 - Alto (8-3) vs. Mart (10-2), 7:30 p.m. Saturday

3A Regional

Division 2 - Carthage (10-2) vs. Rockdale (9-2), 8 p.m. Friday
