After failing to qualify for College Station on their respective home turf, the Estacado Matadors made up the qualifying round loss two weeks ago and successfully qualified for state after topping Merkel, 27-13.

The Matadors finished at the top of Pool E, defeating Plains, Slaton and Crane en route to a state berth.

Levelland, who have already qualified for state, fell to Snyder in nail-biting fashion, 32-31, in the group play opener at Snyder High School. Since the loss, the Lobos won two straight, shutting out Blackwell, 49-0, and outlasting Hawley, 53-22.

Wellman-Union, who enter the state qualifying tournament for the first time in their first year, fell to three tough teams in Sweetwater, Wink and Stamford.

In a pool full of South Plains teams, Slaton faced tough competition in Plains and Crane. The Tigers fell to the Golden Cranes 27-26, in what was a comeback victory for Crane in the second half, seeing the end zone three times. For Plains, which struggled on the offensive side scoring 13 points in their first two games, finished strong despite a 38-25 loss to the Tigers in the final group stage game.

Estacado and Levelland are joined with Lubbock Coronado, which qualified for state through the host tournament in Lubbock back on May 27.
