SGP FB – Looking Ahead to Round Two: Colleyville Heritage (8-3), Area Playoffs


By Denton Ramsey / Sports Editor


Looking ahead to the next round, the South Grand Prairie Warriors (10-1) will be battling Colleyville Heritage (8-3) in the Area Round of the 2006 Playoffs.

Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 24 at Texas Stadium in Irving.

The Warriors, coming off a 24-21 victory against Arlington Bowie in the Bi-District Round, have now won seven straight entering round two of postseason play.

Colleyville, meanwhile, upset higher ranked Coppell in the Bi-District Round with a 52-20 beating entering Friday’s second round action.

The key to a SGP victory goes back to the basics: solid defense.

If the Warriors D can hold Colleyville out of the red-zone and out of the end zone, SGP has a good chance of advancing.

And although it does not even need to be said, teamwork in the face of adversity is a must.

Thus far this season, the Warriors have proven they can battle past any and all adversity thrown their way.

Come Friday night, SGP will have a chance to prove it once again – only this time, it will be under Texas Stadium’s lights.

Win, advance; lose, head home.

The choice is simple.

On a team full of leadership, youth and talent, it’s very likely that the Warriors will once again find a way to win.

One game down, five to go…
