Bearcats will face Fort Worth ISD in first round of playoffs
In the bi-district round of the class 4A playoffs, district 5-4A plays the four top teams from district 6-4A which includes most of the Fort Worth schools. Aledo will play the Fort Worth-O.D. Wyatt Chaparrals, the team with the second best record in the Division II playoffs from district 6-4A.
Nerves for the first round of the playoffs were eased for the Aledo Ladycats Tuesday night as they ran away with a bi-district victory over the Fort Worth-Eastern Hills Lady Plaids at Fort Worth ISD’s Wilkerson Greines Activity Center.
All it took was three games and a bolstered defense mixed with a fast-paced offense that sealed the deal for the black and orange advancing them to the Area game against Stephenville. The Ladycats will face the Honeybees Thursday.
“We weren’t sure what all to expect,” Aledo Head Coach Kathy Goings said. “The first playoff game they’re always going to come out with jitters. Once they calmed down, they started playing better.”
