Eagles await playoff opponent,

host Ft. Davis in practice game

The Pecos Eagles' volleyball team won't know until Saturday afternoon who their bi-district playoff opponent will be, and will be on the court in a practice game against Fort Davis about the same time as Seminole and Lamesa are deciding second place in the District 3-3A standings.

The Eagles, who ended up third in District 4-3A after losing to Midland Greenwood at home on Tuesday, will face the winner of the Seminole-Lamesa game in the bi-district round of the Class 3A playoffs. That game will probably be played next Tuesday in Odessa, but before then, coach Becky Granado said the Eagles would play a practice game against Fort Davis at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Pecos High School gym.

However, Granado said, "I may only have six (varsity) girls there. One sprained her ankle, one said she hurt her back, one is going to be at a softball tournament and Leslie (Rodriguez) is going to Lubbock for cross-country."

As a result, Granado said she would bring up junior varsity players Jessica Florez and Candace Regelman for Saturday's match. She said Florez would be used as the Eagles' other setter, along with sophomore Danielle Garcia.

Sub-varsity teams swept by Stockton

The Pecos Eagles' junior varsity football team gave up too many points, while Pecos' junior high teams couldn't get any points Thursday night, as the Eagles sub-varsity squads were swept for the second time this season by the Fort Stockton Panthers.

Pecos' JV team saw their record fall to 6-3 with a 32-13 loss in Fort Stockton to the Panthers, while the Eagles' junior high teams were all shut out at home _ the seventh grade purple and gold teams by 6-0 scores and the eighth grade squads by 20-0 margins.

The JV allowed Fort Stockton to break two long runs and score twice more off Pecos turnovers, coach Gaylon Doan said. "They had a blocked punt for a touchdown, and we fumbled and two plays they were in the end zone," he said, while the two touchdown runs were for 55 and 85 yards.

"We just broke down on defense and broke down on offense," Doan said. "The last two games the kids had played as well as they had all year. It seemed like last night we just went back to our old ways."

The eighth grade purple and gold teams are 1-7 and 2-5 after their losses to Fort Stockton. The Panthers scored two early touchdowns and one in the closing minutes, while the Eagles had their only score, a 96-yard interception return by Larry Johnson, called back by a penalty.

The seventh grade purple and gold teams are 2-5-1 and 3-3-1 after their one-touchdown losses. The purple team lost their game in the final two minutes of play, after turning the ball over on downs at midfield.

Tonight at 7:30 p.m., Pecos' varsity will take on Fort Stockton in their final regular season home game. The game will also be "Parents Night" where the parents of Pecos' senior players, band members and cheerleaders, will be introduced before the start of the game.

The Eagles come into the game with a 2-6 record, while the Panthers are 4-5 on the season. Fort Stockton will technically play an 11-game regular season this year, because they replaced their Oct. 11 forfeit win against Presidio with a game against Odessa Permian's junior varsity on Oct. 4, in order to avoid two straight open weeks.

Fort Stockton can clinch a playoff spot tonight with a win over Pecos and a victory by Kermit over Monahans. Midland Greenwood is idle tonight, but will clinch the District 4-3A title with their forfeit victory over Presidio.

Monahans (1-2 district, 4-4 season) at Kermit (2-1, 3-5): The Loboes haven't allowed a point in regulation in their past two games, but lost the first one in overtime to Fort Stockton when they also failed to score in regulation. Last week against Pecos, they were set up for two early scores by Pecos in their 29-0 win over the Eagles, while driving 90 yards for their other score on offense to start the third period.

Kermit put 31 points on the scoreboard against the Eagles on Oct. 11, but other than that have also had problems putting points on the board this season. The Jackets got their forfeit victory over Presidio last Friday and come into the game following a 35-0 homefield loss to Greenwood on Oct. 18. The Rangers rolled up 477 yards on offense in that game, after gaining about 100 yards the previous week at home against Monahans in a 28-0 victory.
