TYLER , Texas (KTRE) - The goal of a UIL state title will come to an end Friday night for either Daingerfield or Elysian Fields while the other will survive to fight another day.
The two squads will meet in the 3A DII Region III Area Round of the playoffs at Tatum Friday night. The winner will play either West Rusk or New Waverly next week in the third round of the playoffs.
