Brock vs. Peaster highlights district clashes

With holiday tourneys behind, area teams focus on ‘real’ season

— By GREG WEBB

Nearly all of the Parker County basketball teams have begun their respective district schedules, with the Springtown (Dist. 6-3A) and Poolville (Dist, 11-1A, DI) girls making their first foray on Friday. The Porcupines and Monarchs boys’ teams wait another week to begin their league campaigns.

But for most, Friday sees a resumption of the all-important district slates which will require attention through the current month and into February.

The Weatherford varsity teams travel to take on Arlington High. The Lady Roos (1-3), look to get another district win and climb back to the middle of the District 3-5A pack in hopes of snaring another playoff berth for a second-consecutive postseason appearance. The WHS boys (0-2) will try to break into the win column in a very talented district. Game starts are set for 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., respectively.

Aledo’s varsity teams are home and away, with the Bearcats hosting FW Southwest after a disappointing 1-3 mark coming out of the Moritz Classic tourney.. The AHS boys are 1-1 in District 7-4A and will tipoff at 7:30 p.m. at Bearcat gym. The Ladycats (4-0) have dominated its district slate thus far, and appears to be headed to a mid-season clash with Granbury (4-0). But the district foes will need to get by Southwest and  Trimble Tech, respectively, to set up the clash of the undefeateds.

District 9-2A, which is heavily populated with Parker County schools, features a intracounty clash always anticipated and usually a crowd pleaser, with Peaster and Brock squaring off for the first of two district meetings. Taking advantage of the final day of the holiday break, the games will be afternoon affairs at Peaster High School.

The Lady Greyhounds (1-2), led by new head coach Denise Yankie hope to use the home venue to even up their district mark at the expense of the Lady Eagles (4-0). Brock and Peaster will take the court slated for a 3 p.m. start.

    That coaches will move on, due to advancement of career, life changes or a myriad of other influences, is a given. Aledo is not immune to the turnover, but is year-in and year-out apt to experience very modest changes, due to another myriad of positive factors.
