The jigsaw puzzle known as District 13-4A is almost solved.

The final playoff piece will fall into place Friday when Sulphur Springs takes on Hallsville at 7:30 p.m. at Bobcat Stadium.

Hallsville and Sulphur Springs are fighting for the number two small school seed in the playoffs, or fourth place in the district.

Longview has already wrapped up another district title, having won 34 consecutive district games.

Marshall, a team which defeated Sulphur Springs last week 48-13 is sitting in second place with Texas High in third place.

All that is left is to determine the team for fourth place.

It’s pretty simple when Hallsville and Sulphur Spring tee up the football for the kickoff Friday night, the winner goes home and the loser packs up shoulder pads for next year.

“Hallsville doesn’t have that good of a record, but they have lost to the same people we have in district,” Sulphur Springs head coach Greg Owens said. “Texas High had to get a field goal in the final seconds to win, so they are playing pretty well.”

Hallsville is the No. 2 defense in the district, allowing 272 yards a game. The Bobcats have the No. 5-ranked offense rolling for 245 yards a game.

Sulphur Springs also comes into the game with an identical 2-3 district record.

The Wildcats are No. 3 defensively in the district allowing 277.7 yards a game, the offense is accounting for 398.4 a game, second only to Longview.
