Midway preparing for quarterfinal test against Allen

HEWITT, Texas The Midway Panthers play their quarterfinal playoff game Saturday against one of the state's premier programs, the Allen Eagles. Midway brings a one loss record into the showdown against the defending 6A Division 1 state champs.

Midway is coming off a dramatic win over Klein Oak in the postseason where they had to rally in the second half to earn the win. Now they face a perennial powerhouse program.

Midway head coach Jeff Hulme says the Eagles are a formidable foe because they have tremendous size and they have a lot of talented players on the roster at the skill spots.

Hulme says to win, the Panthers can't afford to play poorly in the first half of the game, they have to be ready from the outset.
