Notes:
Refugio is looking at another 10-0 season in 2009 if they get past the Industrial game. They are coming off of back to back 13-1 seasons and with all the offensive talent like QB Hendley and WR ortiz coming back, they will be a difficult team to beat. Expect at least a trip to the quarterfinals.
