FRISCO, Texas The Mart Panthers and the San Saba Armadillos are both heading to the state semifinal round of the playoffs after Thursday night wins.
Mart advances in 2A division 2 after blowing out defending state champion Muenster. In the showdown of the two 2A champs from last season the Panthers dominated from start to finish. Mart scored on their first drive of the game. They forced a quick turnover and scored moments later to make it 14-0, then returned a punt for a touchdown and the blowout was on in the early stages of the game.
With the 59-0 win Mart advances to next week's state semifinal round.
San Saba also jumped ahead early in their rematch with De Leon. The Dillos built an early lead and held on from there to earn a 31-17 win in a game they controlled all night. That win puts the Dillos into the 2A division 1 semifinal round next week.
