Class 5A Division I


El Paso Chapin (2-4) at Tascosa (7-2), noon, Dick Bivins Stadium: The 5A playoffs have arrived for the Rebs and Coach Plunk.

The opponent 2-4 El Paso Chapin, so many believe a Tascosa slam dunk.

Indeed, The Rebs will roll in this one at home,

That Tascosa triple option will find holes and roam. … Tascosa 45, Chapin 18

Amarillo High (6-3) at El Paso El Dorado (1-3), 2 p.m. Socorro Athletic Complex, El Paso: Crazy, crazy and more crazy in that no fans allowed;

Still, these Sandies will make their parents proud.

That time, and dominating defensive front, mean El Dorado is done. … Amarillo High 48, El Dorado 14

Class 5A Division II


Randall (4-5) at Fort Worth Southwest (7-2), 6 p.m., Clark Stadium, Fort Worth: If records mean anything Randall is toast,

But wait a second, before thinking Southwest in a coast.

And we know what happened, the Raiders with good news. … Randall 31, FW Southwest 21
