Rains Forces Huge Playoff Games To Monday

A rain-soaked Saturday afternoon forced several playoff game threes to Monday.

The Lindale Eagles got up Saturday for games two and three of their series with Van Alstyne. They wound up driving 350 miles and to four different ballparks before finally settling into the reasonably dry surface at Bullard. Their series is knotted up at one game each, the third fall comes tomorrow at Forney. The game starts at noon, and Eagles Coach Robbie Surratt says he has some back-up fields lined up just in case the bad weather happens again. The winner will play the heavily rested Carthage Bulldogs, who beat Princeton last Thursday night.

The New Diana Eagles are going to game three against Franklin. Their game will be at three, back at Jacksonville. The winner of that game takes on Woodville, who swept out Grand Saline.

In 1A, half of the district rematch is set. Harleton waits on the winner of Union Hill and Windthorst, at five in Frisco. If Union Hill wins, it's two years in a row this district has produced both regional finalists, and one of them will get the trip to Austin.
