Rebels go to final game with chance for district title


The final Friday of the high school football season arrives with exactly one game involving a Hays County team that really matters.

The Hays Rebels are going to Smithson Valley with the District 27-4A championship in the balance. If the Rebels win and Alamo Heights loses to Schertz Clemens, then the Rebels will own the tiebreaker at the top against Smithson Valley. If the Rebels and Alamo Heights both win, it’s a three-way tie at the top that will start going deep into the tiebreakers. If Smithson Valley wins, it takes the league title all alone.

The Rebels are 6-3 overall and 4-1 in the district. Smithson Valley is 5-0 and 8-1. Chances are, the Rebels need a big win to survive a tiebreaker referencing point margins in games among the teams tied. Alamo Heights has defeated Hays, 35-17, and Smithson Valley has defeated Alamo Heights, 21-0.

Another local game in District 27-4A will decide who escapes from the league basement as Lockhart visits Lehman at Bob Shelton Stadium. Lehman is 3-6 and 0-5, while Lockhart is 0-9 and 0-5.

For what it’s worth, Lehman has been outscored, 227-73, in its district games. Lockhart has scored 73 points during the entire season, being outscored, 172-35, in district games.

San Marcos will end its miserable season Friday night at Cibolo Steele. The Rattlers are 0-9 overall and 0-4 in District 25-5A. Steele is 7-2 and 4-0, already clinching the district championship.

Wimberley will tune up for what it hopes will be a deep run into the Class 3A playoffs as it visits Boerne Friday to end the regular season. The Texans are 9-0 overall and 4-0 in District 26-3A. Boerne is 4-5 and 2-2.

San Marcos Academy (SMA), which is out of the playoff hunt, will finish its season Friday at Hyde Park. SMA is 3-6 overall and 0-3 in TAPPS II-3A.
