It will be Huskies vs Lobos: Part Two tonight at La Joya Stadium as the Juarez-Lincoln Huskies and the Palmview Lobos take to the gridiron and face off for a rematch of last season’s 17-15 Juarez-Lincoln victory. The game had increased significance since it was the Huskies first year in District 30-5A, making it the first district matchup between two of the three La Joya football teams.
As the season played out last year, both teams fell short of qualifying for the state playoffs. As a result, both teams are even more determined to break into post-season play this year. The victor of tonight’s intra-city clash will take a major step towards that goal.
With the Huskies falling to Rio Hondo, 19-13, and the Lobos losing to Veterans Memorial, 56-7, last week, neither team is entering the first round of district play with any kind of momentum. While both coaches would’ve preferred to be coming off of victories as they head into district action, neither is dwelling on what could’ve been.
