The Ennis Lions (10-0, 7-0, 15-4A) will head to Mesquite on Friday to face the Lindale Eagles (3-7, 2-3, 16-4A) at E.H. Hanby Stadium for the bi-district round of playoffs. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
The head coaches of the two teams had previously agreed to play in Forney and Lion head coach Jack Alvarez suggested Desoto after the Forney plans fell through, but circumstances resulted in the third option of Mesquite.
“I told him to just find you a place and we’ll show up and play,” Alvarez said. “I said just give us 48 minutes. Find us a stadium in 48 minutes and we’ll be happy; that’s exactly what I said.”
