If anyone can, it will be Brenham. Our boys were flat in the first half. It really showed that they were playing their second big game in just five days with only minimal practice. Their previous game was Monday night and school didn't open again until Thursday (with a delayed start) due to the weather. This week they will at least get some good practice in.

I also should have said Ennis was really pumped up for the game. They brought a huge crowd and their team fought hard. They had a good D.

That was a very physical game with two very physical defenses going at it.  The difference was Aledo consistently moved the ball through the

game but didn't capitalize on opportunities.  Ennis had one prolonged drive that died on a 4th and 2 inside the ten.  Other than that drive Ennis had around 80 yards of total offense

in each half and I believe 8 total first downs (at least 4 were on the one drive). 

 

Next week I think Aledo will be a heavy favorite; however, anything can happen on a given day...especially in the final.

Regarding the short practice week per DMN

Aledo won despite having a quick turnaround and short week of practice because last weekend’s inclement weather and icy roads prevented the Bearcats from playing their regional final until Monday. Ennis, meanwhile, played its regional final four days earlier.

In the UIL’s Constitution and Contest Rules, it says that “No team or student in any conference shall be permitted to take part in more than one playoff game within six calendar days, unless mutually agreeable to play within five calendar days.”

 

“The UIL’s got to figure out something,” Buchanan said. “It wasn’t fair to these kids, it wasn’t fair to the coaches to try to do what we did. We’re very fortunate to come out of here with a victory.

“We had to practice more this week than we normally do playing Monday night. We never have two-hour practices. We had to have three of them. It’s too hard on a high school football team. They may do it in the NFL, but those guys get paid millions of dollars to do it. There is a reason why that rule is in the UIL.”
