Up next UIL playoffs …
?
Kennedale is no stranger here, having made the playoffs now for 17 years. But, neither is their first opponent, the Godley Lady Wildcats (16-19, 6-6).?
?
Usually in bi-district match-up when a # 1 seed plays a # 4 seed, it provides a warm-up game for the top ranked team, a sure win. For Kennedale, this time around, it is a match-up with an old rival, one that has bested Kennedale a number of times over the years.
?
Forget that Godley is a 4th seed out of District 8-4A. They played in very tough district this year that featured the #2 team in Class 4A, Glen Rose (31-1, 12-0) followed by Midlothian Heritage and Stephenville. Beyond that, Kennedale and Godley know each other well. They play the same aggressive? style of game. So, even in what seems an off-year for Godley, expect some fireworks in the first round.?
