GRAPELAND at San Augustine
The Grapeland football team enters play in the brutally tough District 10-A, Division I Friday with a trip to San Augustine.
The Wolves enter the game at 3-2, having lost to Tyler Grace Community to and Class 2A Garrison.
San Augustine is coming off of a 38-33 victory over defending state champion Tenaha last Friday.
Grapeland enters the game losers of two-straight, the last of which came at the hands of Leon, 42-34.
In that game, the Sandies gave up 22 second quarter points that allowed the Cougars to build a lead Grapeland couldn’t come back from in the end.
With the district’s top-two teams — West Sabine and Alto — ranked in this week’s Associated Press top-10, this matchup appears to be a separation game for the two teams currently in third and fourth in the district standings.
Kick-off is set for 7:30 p.m. at San Augustine’s Wolf Stadium (N. Milam St. at Hilltop Road, San Augustine, Texas 75972).
