Final Regular Season Notes

What happened to the 3rd Grade? Basically six mismatches. It's tough ending the season playing a much higher-rated team. Upsets are tough. However, there are a number of teams who played much better than expected. Here is this week's honor roll: Flag Burleson 1 Bantam Azle 2 Decatur 1 Aledo 1 Eaton 3rd Burleson 4th Decatur 5th Eaton 2 Whitney 6th Burleson 2 These are the teams to watch out for. Some teams that won ended up still behind the team they beat. This is nothing unususal. Some of them were caused by beating teams that had been playing better. This is called an upset. It's my favorite kind of game. The others are just a quirk of the system like the Cleburne-White Settlement game. Cleburne won but White Settlement was still at the top. The next week, however, Cleburne had moved well ahead.

Notes

 Things are getting shaken up at the 6th Grade level. Burleson 1 looked good when they beat the 18-point favorite Decatur 18-6. Even better was the Midlothian team who beat the 25-point favorite Whitney team 8-6. That's the upset of the week. One other game was a shocker. In the Bantam Cleburne gave number one White Settlement a goose egg. White Settlement was a 10-point favorite but lost 16-0. That brings Cleburne's rating to within one point. We'll see where they are after next week's game. there are two more weeks to settle which teams will be in the playoffs. It looks as if there will be a lot of excitement and, hopefully, more upsets.

Great Games

 The team of the week is 4th Grade Eaton 2 for pulling off a great upset over Burleson. Burleson fell off a little last week and they fell off a lot more this week. They are still a good team if they can get things back in order. Meanwhile Eaton 2 could be looking at good times ahead if they keep playing as they did this week. We're two-thirds of the way through the season and then the playoffs. Let's see more upsets.
