The Aledo Bearcats' quest for a second consecutive 4-A Division II state championship is taking an unexpected path. The number 2 state ranked (and Aledo’s opponent in the championship game last season) Brenham Cubs were defeated by Kingwood Park 29-24. Bracket watchers may have had a potential showdown of the two top rated 4A teams penciled in for a repeat championship game in 2010.
Coupled with Waco High’s upset of Everman, the playoffs this year are looking less familiar to Bearcat fans. Hereford defeated Denton High today to set up a possible re-match in the regional round in two weeks. Stephenville is still alive in the bottom part of the Region 1 bracket. The Bearcats could potentially meet the YellowJackets in the Region 1 quarterfinals December 2-4, 2010.
Kickoff will be at 7:30 PM this Friday, November 19th at Bearcat Stadium for the area match up between Aledo and the Waco High Lions.
