20121012 Football LaJoya vs JuarezLincoln lg-33Juarez-Lincoln’s Martin Diaz breaks away from La Joya defenders Jorge Guajardo and Frank Munoz as he breaks into the open field during the Huskies 35-0 victory over the Coyotes last week. Progress Times photo by Luciano GuerraThe Palmview Lobos will be entering Cat’s Memorial Stadium in Edinburg tonight for their game against the Vela Sabercats with a 1-3 district record. If all goes as planned for Coach Manuel Flores’ Lobos, not only will they be leaving the field and boarding the buses at 2-3, but they will also be doing so with their playoff hopes still alive.

With a two-point loss to Juarez-Lincoln in Week 2 and a one-point loss to Edinburg North last week, the Lobos could easily be 3-1 right now, if only they had executed two or three plays better. As Flores explains, whether the Lobos emerge victorious from tonight’s game will depend on how well his players execute.

Progress Times photo by Luciano GuerraThe Mission Eagles will be taking the field at Tom Landry Stadium tonight for a game that they may already have won prior to the opening kick-off. How is this possible? Their opponent is Edcouch-Elsa, who must forfeit all their football games this season, due to of alleged violations of the UIL's new eight hours-a-week practice rule.

Facing the UIL’s so called “death penalty,” Edcouch-Elsa has since filed an appeal, but the decision on the appeal may not be known prior to the start of tonight’s game. As a result, the Eagles could take the field tonight not knowing if the final score will matter.
