The Henderson Lions football team will face off against the Kilgore Bulldogs on December 1st at the Pinetree Stadium in Longview to continue in the playoffs.
“Country boys [Henderson] vs city boys [Kilgore],” Henderson citizen Charles Cockroft said. “It’s a traditional matchup.”
This will be Henderson’s third game in the playoffs.
“I think the Lions will do alright, considering that we’ve beaten two other teams, the Navasota Rattlers and the Sealy Tigers,” sophomore Ashley Wilkinson said. “With our team, we should get pretty far in the playoffs.”
Kilgore won over Henderson in their latest game in the season.
“This is our chance for revenge!” Henderson Lions fan Lita Wilkinson said. “If we’re going to beat them this season, now is definitely our time.”
In the past, Henderson seldomly advances past the third playoff game.
“I have heard that Henderson hasn’t won three playoff games in a while,” teacher Callie Lawrence said. “But I know we can tonight!”
