Texas High's defense stays strong

Posted: Updated:
MARSHALL, Tx -

Texas High earned their district's number 1 seed in the playoffs Friday night with an impressive statement win over Marshall, 45-0, for their 6th straight victory. The Tigers currently own one of the deadliest defenses in East Texas right now.

Texas high has only allowed an opponent to score 15 or more points once this season.  Before Friday night's match-up, Marshall was averaging 44 points per game in district, that was until Texas High's swarming D forced the Mavs to lay a goose egg.   Even with their reserves in the second half, Marshall could only amass 37 yards of offense against the Tigers.

With a win at home over Hallsville next week, Texas High will have their first 9 win season since 2008.  They'll go for a perfect district record Friday at 7:30.  As for Marshall, they're still in the conversation, earning the second seed in the district for the postseason.  The Mavs travel to Sulphur Springs in their regular season finale.
