MART, Texas The Mart Panthers are hoping to beat Refugio Friday night at home in a rematch of last year's 2A state championship game.
Mart is 3-1 this season and they've played well with the exception of their game against Franklin a couple of weeks ago. Friday they play the same team they beat in last year's state title game, Refugio.
One unique thing about this year's matchup is the total transformation of the Refugio offense since that meeting in December. Kevin Hoffman says had he known that Refugio would be switching to a triple option offensive attack he may have had second thoughts about scheduling the game. He also says the Panther defense has to play well and play assignment football Friday night to win.
