Poteet and West Mesquite each came up short on Friday but the Pirates will be moving on to the playoffs, while the Wranglers had their season come to an end.

Though it did not control its own destiny, West Mesquite entered Friday with a chance to make the playoffs.

But any such scenario would be rendered moot if the Wranglers were unable to defeat Texarkana Texas High.

The Tigers had their own postseason hopes and they seized their chance, opening a huge first-half lead and cruising to a 41-14 victory in Texarkana.

As it turns out, West Mesquite (2-8, 2-4) would not have made the playoffs even with a win as Sherman (3-3) was able to rally past Tyler John Tyler (3-3) to create a three-way tie for third place along with Texas High (3-3).

It came down to point differential, giving the Lions the nod, but Sherman needed to win by at least 11 points and thought they led by that exact number in the fourth quarter, Tyler John Tyler was able to score and narrow the gap, thus giving Texas High the final spot.

Over in 8-5A Division I, Lufkin had already secured the district title and the top seed.

College Station, just two years removed from a state championship, entered the night with a possibility of missing the playoffs.

However, they rallied from a 27-8 halftime deficit to pull out a 37-30 victory over Magnolia West. College Station finished in a tie for second place with Magnolia, but took the second seed due to its head-to-head win.

Magnolia West dropped back into a tie for fourth, but also moved on thanks to its earlier victory over Tomball.

Despite losing two of its last three, Poteet (5-5) is the second seed in the playoffs and will take on Magnolia (7-3) in a Class 5A Division I bi-district playoff game at 7 p.m. Friday at Mesquite Memorial Stadium.

District champion McKinney North (9-1) will host Magnolia West (5-5) at 7 p.m. Friday at McKinney ISD Stadium.

Tyler John Tyler (3-7) goes on the road to take on College Station (7-3) at7 p.m. Friday at Cougar Stadium, while Texarkana Texas High (6-4) will also travel when it squares off with Lufkin (9-1) at 7 p.m. Friday at Abe Martin Stadium.
