Longview heads five teams playing for state

Five East Texas teams are still alive in the high school playoffs, and in the state championship round

The Longview Lobos beat Denton Guyer to advance to their first title game since 1997. The Lobos will play Lake Travis, the defending state champs and the number one team in the nation, Saturday afternoon at two at Floyd Casey Stadium in Waco.

That district could sweep the 4A titles, because Sulphur Springs ran their "NASCAR Offense" right past Everman to move on to their first championship game ever. They'll face Dayton at two Saturday in the alamodome.

In 3A, the Carthage Bulldogs are playing in just their second state championship appearance. They played in 1991 at the Astrodome, this time, the Bulldogs are playing in another Texas landmark. They'll play Friday night in Texas Stadium at eight in what will be the final high school game for the Cowboys longtime home. They'll face Celina, who is playing in their fourth straight state title game.

In 2A, the Daingerfield Tigers are back, ten years after their last state appearance. The Tigers blew out Blanco, they'll draw Cisco for the crown at Waco ISD Stadium.

And in 1A, the Cayuga Wildcats make their first appearance in the final round. Cayuga plays Stratford at Shotwell Stadium in Abilene on Saturday.
