District 2-2A is shaping up to go down to the wire this season with seven teams competing for three playoff spots. Right now, Idalou is sitting where they were predicted to be, undefeated (3-0) in district play. However, someone forgot to tell Coach Gardner's bunch out in Coahoma they are expected to finish in second place, not first. Currently, the Bulldogs are atop the district with a 4-0 district record after last week's thrilling 23-22 win at Forsan. Coahoma and Idalou are set to play Nov. 4 in the season finale. Hang on to your tickets for that one; they will be quite valuable, as the game should decide the district title.
In the mean time, Coahoma will be hosting Anson Friday night in what could be their most dangerous game of the season. Anson is still looking for their first win of the season and just waiting for someone, anyone to overlook them and take them too lightly.
Meanwhile, the Buffaloes of Forsan are brimming with confidence as well. Coach Phillips' team came within seconds of knocking off the Coahoma Bulldogs last week in a game of two teams undefeated in district. They are going to need the momentum they have built as they travel to Idalou Friday night for another tough game. But, like Coach Phillips said recently, â€śThere are no easy wins at this point in the season.â€ť
The Buffaloes could do themselvesâ€” and Coahoma â€” a huge favor by taking out Idalou. The fine folks at Texas Monthly would not know what to do with themselves.
Hawley, at 2-2 in district, is only half a game behind Forsan and looking to make some late noise. They are off this week, but will be back to play Post next week before ending their season against Forsan.
The Stanton Buffaloes at 2-5 sit only one rung higher than winless Anson. Neither team has won a district game this season and with time ticking away, they are really feeling the pressure to win some games. They do play each other in the a season finale.
