BELLMEAD, Texas The La Vega Pirates play for a 4A state championship Friday afternoon against Liberty Hill. The same Liberty Hill team they beat twice last season, once in district play once in the playoffs.
Both teams are different this year, and the La Vega players say they understand Liberty Hill is better. Still, the Pirates are a confident bunch, they believe they're better this year too and look forward to the challenge that awaits them Friday at AT&T Stadium.
La Vega is a team with a ton of momentum. The Pirates have been thumping really good football teams in the second half of the season and throughout this playoff run. If they can win one more, they'll win their second state championship in a four year span.
