Mike Says :  Carthage (my #2 team) took out my #1 team Waco La Vega last week.  Kenndale has been rolling and has finally made it to the big game.   This will be a close game but Carthage does not lose close games or championship games (they have won their last 5).   CARTHAGE wins it to make it back to back championships.

Chris Says : These two have been my #1 (Carthage) and #2 (Kennedale) since preseason and the only reason Kennedale wasn't tied for 1st for me is frankly, because of the way they let me down last year. I was on the Kennedale bandwagon and touting them all last season and once things got going in the playoffs, they left me hanging. Carthage has so much talent even before you get to Keontay Ingram - add him in and they are unstoppable. Coach Scott Surratt is a master and his CARTHAGE team wins another title!
