Last week: Eisenhower’s playoff chances took a blow with a 20-0 loss to Alief Taylor on Saturday. Catalon ran just eight times for 27 yards in the loss. A loss this weekend to Houston Nimitz all but assures the Eagles will miss the postseason.

Last week: Marble Falls went 0-3 against the top three teams in 25-4A after their 31-27 loss to Vandegrift. Gray (7 rec., 133 yards, two touchdowns on Friday) and the high-flying Mustang offense must now take care of business against the other three district foes to secure the final playoff spot.
