This week on Friday Night Football, #2 Waco La Vega takes on top-ranked Argyle in a rematch of last year’s 4A-Division 1 Region II final.
Argyle comes in having taken the #1 ranking away from LaVega over these first three weeks of the season, on the strength of a blowout of 10th-ranked Decatur, a 52-41 road win over the team then ranked #1 in 4A-DII, Texarkana Pleasant Grove and last week’s 35-21 win over Celina.
Meanwhile, La Vega has played arguably the most challenging schedule in the state, and rolled through it to a 3-0 record, beating #5 Port LaVaca Calhoun 20-7, and then back-to-back wins over teams ranked #7 in the state in the respective weeks they played, 13-10 over Waco Connally, and 21-13 over Calallen.
Tonight it will be strength against strength as Argyle’s high-powered offense (averaging 47.6 ppg) clashes with one of the stingiest defenses in the state. LaVega has allowed just 30 points total so far this season.
Coverage starts on Friday night at 7:30 here on WFAA.com or on the WFAA Youtube channel.
