Football: UIL title games all set

Comments () A Text Size

Starting back in early August, football teams from all across the state began preparations for the season with hopes and dreams of first reaching the playoffs and ultimately earning a spot in a state championship game.

Now, after the grind of the regular season and battling through round after round of the playoffs, 20 teams head to Arlington’s AT&T Stadium this week hoping to take home one of 10 UIL state championship trophies at the three-day event.

The championships will take on a Denton County flavor Friday when the Guyer Wildcats and Argyle Eagles attempt to claim two of those titles. Guyer will be trying to earn back-to-back Class 4A crowns as it faces San Antonio Northside Brennan at 8 p.m. in the 4A Division I title game.

Argyle will face Fairfield at 4 p.m. in the Class 3A Division II championship game.

The Wildcats (13-2) had to rally with 22 fourth-quarter points on Saturday against Highland Park for a 22-16 victory to earn their spot for the second straight year in the championship game. San Antonio Brennan (15-0) earned its berth in the finals after knocking off Houston Stratford 31-7. Last year, Guyer defeated Georgetown 48-37 in the title game.

Argyle will be making its second appearance in three years in the Class 3A Division II championship. The Eagles lost to Wimberley 21-14 in 2011. Argyle (15-0) returns to Arlington after rolling past Graham 38-14 on Saturday night. Fairfield (15-0) earned its place in the finals by defeating Sinton 56-13.

Four champions will be crowned on Thursday when the Class A and Class 2A Division I and II title games are played.

Friday’s action begins at noon when Kilgore (14-0) and Carthage (14-1) play for the Class 3A Division I championship, followed by Argyle and Fairfield at 4 p.m. and concluding with Guyer and Brennan at 8 p.m.

Aledo (15-0) and Brenham (14-1) gets Saturday started when they meet at noon for the Class 4A Division II crown. At 4 p.m., Allen (15-0) faces Pearland (14-1) for the Class 5A Division I crown before Cedar Hill (13-2) and Katy (15-0) bring the championship marathon to a close when they play for the Class 5A Division II trophy.

Two champions were crowned on Saturday when the UIL six-man championship were played at AT&T Stadium. In the Division I title game, Crowell rolled to a 78-52 victory over May. In the Division II clash, Grandfalls-Royalty defeated Milford 78-22.
