Tonight’s wins weigh heavy on area grid teams

It is week 10.

The final week of district football play has arrived. For some the outcome of tonight’s grid action will be the bittersweet end to a season, and for some in the area it will be a chance to advance into the playoffs. Cumby will be vying to keep their playoff dreams alive if they can take a road win from the Detroit Eagles. The Cooper Bulldogs of District 7-2A Division II have secured their playoff bracket slot as they round out play against the visiting Rivercrest Rebels to decide second place. Como-Pickton, a seven-point underdog, travels to Paris Chisum for their final grid action. Also with final games, Winnsboro will host District 7-2A Division I powerhouse Melissa and in 3A, Mount Vernon treks to face off with a tough Liberty-Eylau squad.
