Porcupines-Rams to square off in seed match at Roo gymnasium
Knotted with 7-3 marks at the end of District 6-3A play, Springtown and Mineral Wells look to better their respective bracket positions before entering postseason next week. Both swept by state-ranked Kennedale in district play, the teams split their home-away encounters, and will play the rubber match on Friday, to determine the second and third seeding.
The second tier of the district was clearly defined throughout the schedule, as Pojo and the Rams blew past the rest of the field. The two teams could have opted for a coin flip, but chose instead, to settle the seeding on the court.
Many teams play a warm-up game before the start of postseason anyway, so the match satisfies that desire. And the winner of Friday’s game, should it advance deep into the bracket, would not have to face district-mate Kennedale again until the Region I finals. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m., at Weatherford High School.
