Daingerfield ends season with loss in Area Championship

by TONI WALKER 

ROYCE CITY – The Daingerfield Tigers traveled Royce City on Nov. 24, to compete in the Area round of the Texas UIL Playoffs. The Tigers faced off against the defending 3A, Division 2 State Champion Gunter Tigers. At the end of the game, Gunter had extended the unbeaten streak to 28 games with a 38-3 win over Daingerfield.

The early afternoon game featured two offenses well capable of scoring forty to fifty points in a game, and defenses known for keeping opponents out of the end zone. Fumbles and missed opportunities, however, seemed the theme of the day for both teams in the first quarter.

The Daingerfield threatened in the first, but turned the ball over on the own six yard line. Daingerfield’s senior kicker, Jose Bello, broke the scoreless tie in the second quarter with a 35 yard field goal. That would be the only time Daingerfield would light the scoreboard, as Gunter put up 38 unanswered points to end Daingerfield’s season.

By RICK COLEGROVE

MESQUITE -- The end of the Mustangs football season came to rather abrupt halt Friday afternoon in Mesquite. Facing a Grandview team that seemingly had an answer for everything Hughes Springs threw at them, it was a long afternoon and drive home for the Mustang faithful and Mustang players.

Ultimately, the Grandview Zebras bested Hughes Springs 49-6, and advanced to the regional semi-final game against a Whitesboro team that defeated the Jefferson Bulldogs, 63-39.

Tigers rip Lone Oak, earn matchup with defending champ Gunter

By TONI WALKER

GLADEWATER – The Daingerfield Tigers took on the Lone Oak Buffaloes on Nov. 17 in a UIL, 3A, Division 2 Bi-District matchup at Jack Murphy Stadium in Gladewater. The Tigers came out on top, 41-17, to set up  a matchup with defending 3A Division State Champion Gunter on Nov. 24.

In what has been a recurring theme throughout the season, Coach Mike Waldie’s Tigers won the toss, but kickedoff after deferring to the second half. On the Tigers’ first defensive drive of the game, Daingerfield forced a punt, but then fumbled to give Lone Oak new life at Daingerfield’s 20 yard line. The defense showed its backbone, however, forcing the Buffaloes to kick a field goal from the 16 yard line.
