This week's Zimmerman Law Firm Marquee Matchup is the District 8-2A opener between Bosqueville and Axtell.
Axtell comes into the game enjoying a better season than last year already. The Longhorns are 2-3 despite going through a coaching and scheme change prior to the season.
Bosqueville, a perennial playoff contender, is struggling early in the year. Injuries have hurt the Bulldogs and so has a tough schedule as they've started just 1-4 this season.
Friday night's showdown in Axtell is big for both teams. Axtell knows they have to get a few district wins to make a return to the postseason possible. Bosqueville is hoping to turn things around quickly so they can get back in the hunt for a district title this season.
