COLLEGE STATION — Argyle and Pilot Point earned slots in today’s Division II championship bracket action at the state 7-on-7 football tournament following strong showings in Thursday’s pool play.

In the first day of games at Veterans Park and Athletic Complex, Argyle finished second in Pool F, while Pilot Point finished second in Pool H.

The top two teams in each of the 16 pools advanced to today’s games in the championship bracket, while the bottom two teams in the four-team pool settle for the consolation bracket. The process is the same for teams in Division I, which starts pool play today.
