After a season of upheaval and disrupted schedules, a pair of state-ranked powers will take the field Friday at Newsom Stadium with a district title on the line.
Second-ranked Aledo, riding back-to-back state championships, visits 7th-ranked Mansfield Timberview with the District 5-5A Division II title hanging in the balance.
Aledo is 4-1 on the year, 2-0 in district play, and won their zone on the strength of convincing wins over Everman and Arlington Seguin.
Timberview is 6-0 for the first time in school history and won their zone after dispatching Cleburne, Burleson, and Joshua.
Now the two clear-cut favorites in this district get to settle it on the field, after a two-week delay. The teams were originally scheduled to play on Nov. 5, but three COVID-19 positives in the Aledo program led to roughly half the roster being in quarantine.
Coverage starts on Friday night at 7:00 here on WFAA.com or on the WFAA Youtube channel.
