The undefeated district champion Aledo Ladycats will have to wait until tomorrow night to finalize the bi-district playoff schedule.
Head Coach Mike Pinkerton said the game would most likely be played on Tuesday night at Mansfield High School, but that is not a certainty.
Aledo will play the loser of the Burleson/Crowley tiebreaker, which will take place at 6:30 p.m. Friday at Joshua High School.
Once the playoff opponent is determined, the final time and location will be finalized.
The Community News will provide live, interactive blog coverage of the game. Watch www.community-news.com for details.
The first hundred people to show up for tomorrow (Tuesday's) district girls' basketball finale against Trimble Tech will receive a ticket for a free hotdog.
Tickets will be distributed prior to the 6 p.m. 9th grade and JV games, and the free hot dogs will be served starting at 7:30, start time for the varsity game.
The game is Aledo's opportunity to capture the district championship outright.
Aledo is 13-0 in district, and Trimble Tech is 12-1.
The Aledo boys soccer games scheduled for Monday, Jan. 6 in Kennedale have been changed. The JV boys game has been canceled, and the varsity game has been moved up to 5 p.m.

Aledo vs. Ennis brings wager
Special to The Community News
Not much is bigger than Texas high school football, and the upcoming state playoff battle between Aledo and Ennis has led to a friendly wager between Parker County Judge Mark Riley and Ellis County Judge Carol Bush.
The losing County Judge will have to wear the winning team’s shirt at their next Commissioners Court meeting.
Despite the fact that Riley is a 1969 graduate of Ennis High School, he makes no secret where his allegiance stands.
In fact it was Riley who contacted Ellis County Judge Carol Bush to offer the bet.
“I am catching some heat about it from high school friends, and I have even received some emails calling me a traitor, but I support Aledo and all Parker County teams no matter what,” Riley said. “We respect Ennis and Ellis County. Both teams are 14-0, but I feel very confident in our Aledo Bearcats.”
However, Ellis County Judge Carol Bush has something different in mind.
“When Judge Riley called eager to lose a wager to me, I was happy to accommodate,” Bush said. “I think the Ennis Lions are going to tame those Aledo Bear kittens, and Judge Riley will be wearing the color that he should have been wearing all along.”
Riley said the wager makes things a little more interesting, but he keeps it all in perspective.
“We are having fun with this playoff match-up between two of the state’s high school football powerhouses, but the most important thing is that we, as local leaders, be supportive of our communities’ children and their schools,” Riley said.
