    Yes YT it took a couple qtrs for the Dogs to wake up and fight back into this game. They didnít broadcast this game so I had to keep up with a lot of phone calls. Yoakum needed this kind of game to prepare for Goliad and the playoffs. Itís going to be another slobberknocker when those two teams meet up. One wants revenge and the other wants respect, perfect combination to determine who winning this district. Gona be a good one!

    Goliad travels to Edna in Week 10 for yet another marquee matchup for District 14 powers. Yoakum travels to Luling to play a team without a win this season. Hallettsville will battle Industrial to try to win that 4th playoff spot......the winner of this game will get the spot. Goliad secured at least the 3rd spot by defeating Hallettsville Friday night. Now Edna will battle Goliad for the 2nd playoff spot. If Goliad wins, then they will play Yoakum the following week for the District Championship and the number #1 seed from District 14 in the playoffs. If Edna wins, then Goliad can still gain a 3 way tie for the District title by defeating Yoakum on the final week......assuming Edna also wins against Industrial. Then the spots will be determined by a point differential among all three teams

    Goliad would have to win out against Edna AND Yoakum to win the district title outright......any way you look at it. If Goliad beats Edna, then Edna is eliminated from a share of the district title. If Goliad loses to Edna, but wins against Yoakum.....then all three teams share the district title.....assuming Edna wins its final district game against Industrial. Then the playoff seeding would be determined by point differential between the three teams against each other. If Goliad loses to Edna AND Yoakum, then Yoakum and Edna will share the district title and Yoakum will earn the #1 playoff seed by way of its win against Edna.....again assuming Yoakum and Edna both win out.

    To take this one step further.......there is ONLY one way for Edna to get the #1 playoff seed in District 14. Edna would have to beat Goliad and Industrial, and then hope Goliad beats Yoakum the following week. Then Edna would have to win the point differential between the 3 teams to get the #1 seed. To do that, Edna would have to beat Goliad by at least 4, and hope that Goliad beats Yoakum by more than 1. Ima thinkin' I have covered all the scenarios now.......I hope everything is crystal clear now, LOL.
    But now I'm wondering if it is possible for Edna to beat Goliad only by 1 point, and for Goliad to beat Yoakum by at least 4 pts. Yeah......I think that might also work, as long as the total points difference is greater less than Yoakum's. NOPE......Goliad could lose by a close margin to Edna and win against Yoakum by a wider margin and then Goliad would win the points difference between the three teams. Best thing is for Goliad to beat Edna this week and eliminate them from sharing the district title. Then it will come down to the last district game between Goliad and Yoakum for the District Championship and #1 playoff seed. That's what both Goliad AND Yoakum want to happen this week, for sure.

    Nope.....that's not right either. Yoakum would prefer for Edna to beat Goliad THIS week and then to beat Goliad the following week to share the district title with Edna but win the #1 playoff seed due to the head to head win over Edna. Looks to me like neither Yoakum or Edna can win the outright district title without sharing it with at least one other team. Goliad is the ONLY team that could win the District 14 Championship outright without sharing it by winning out. Goliad controls its own destiny here.

    Any way you look at it.....it all comes down the last game of district play in the Yoakum-Goliad matchup to determine what will happen......REGARDLESS of the Edna/Goliad result this week. Now I think I have it all summarized correctly. Of course we are assuming that Yoakum beats Luling this week.

    Bottom line is both Goliad and Yoakum control their own destiny. Neither has a district loss yet, but Edna does. I forgot that Yoakum lone loss was the first game of the season against Boerne......not a district game. Both teams are very good, but the loss of star QB Rocky Morris(also plays DB) was a HUGE hit to the Tigers. Bland is back at running back but not at full strength yet. Edna/Goliad game is in Edna this week.....but not sure if Yoakum roughed them up a bit or it went the other way around. Slot-T is tough when both RBs are big and strong.....ground and pound all night. Good part for Goliad is they have big guys on the D line.....but valuable MLB Reitz(6-2, 220/Sr.) is out. So two of Goliad's best players on defense and offense are out......that hurts big time against quality competition.

    Goliad lost to Edna last week 17-7, so Edna wants Goliad to win against Yoakum. That way Edna shares the district title with both Yoakum and Goliad, but wins the #1 playoff spot if Goliad does not beat Yoakum by 17. Edna is +6 with a 4 point loss to Yoakum and a 10 point win over Goliad. Yoakum is +4 with the win over Edna, but still has Goliad left to play. Goliad -10 with that loss to Edna, but must win against Yoakum this week by 17 to overcome Edna for the top playoff spot. If Goliad wins over Yoakum, they must win by a TD and extra point.....7 pts.....to gain the 2nd playoff spot. If Goliad beats Yoakum by any score.....Edna wins the top playoff spot. If Yoakum wins over Goliad, Yoakum wins the district title outright. If Goliad wins over Yoakum, but by less than 7 pts......then Edna takes the top spot, and Yoakum the #2 spot with the 3-way point differential tie-breaker rule in effect. Clear as a bell.....right?

    Goliad 17
    Yoakum 14

    Final

    3-way tie for district title.....Edna wins the tie-breaker point differential for the #1 playoff spot. Yoakum gets the #2 spot and Goliad stays at the #3 spot.

    Some sites are showing Goliad as the #2 seed in this district......I'm not sure that is correct. I thought with a 3-way tie for the District Title.....UIL rules call for a point differential to determine the seeding. If that is true.....then Yoakum should get the #2 seed, not Goliad. Yoakum ended up +1 in points between the other two opponents.....while Goliad ended up -7 points against Yoakum and Edna....even though they won the head to head against Yoakum. I'ma thinkin' those sites are wrong and Yoakum gets the #2 seed.....unless point differential only matters to determine which team gets the #1 seed, then reverts to head to head for the other two.
