High school football playoffs

The Seguin football team nearly pulled off one of the biggest upsets in Class 4A last Friday in the bi-district round of the playoffs, coming within a touchdown and extra point of downing undefeated Whitehouse.

Trailing 23-0, Seguin managed to tie the game at 23 in the middle of the third quarter. Whitehouse had entered the playoffs ranked No. 3 in the state according to the Associated Press poll.

As it stood, Whitehouse needed an overtime touchdown to send the Cougars home for the season by a 50-44 final.

Kelton Moore had 32 rushing yards in the first half and tacked on a whopping 190 after halftime while passing for 276 yards to lead the Cougars offense.

The Warriors will take on Odessa at 7:30 p.m. Friday at UTA Maverick Stadium.

The Vikings take on Abilene Cooper at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Shotwell Stadium in Abilene.

High school volleyball playoffs

Arlington’s Lady Colts drew a tough opponent in the regional quarterfinal round of the playoffs last Monday, falling to Southlake Carroll in three sets.

The Lady Colts were at least able to show the Lady Dragons two of the toughest sets Carroll has played all year, as Carroll narrowly edged Arlington 25-23 in the first and 26-24 in the third.

In the first two rounds of the playoffs, Arlington swept Keller Timber Creek and San Angelo Central.
