BELLMEAD, Texas The La Vega Pirates head up to Frisco and the Star for Thursday's playoff showdown against Paris in the regional round. La Vega takes a 10-2 record into that game, Paris is 9-2 this year.
La Vega struggled a little bit early in the season, but they are playing their best football right now. The Pirates have steamrolled opponents for the past 9 weeks including in a pair of playoff wins.
Now they face a Paris team that head coach Don Hyde says is built a lot like La Vega. They can throw it, they have good running backs, and defensively they are good against the run.
The regional playoff showdown is set to kick off at 7:30pm Thursday night in Frisco.
