Despite the fact that the latter scenario will could easily, and likely, play out, Lady Rams head coach Taylor Eggleston said she and her team can not afford to focus on anything but Friday’s match against Diamond Hill, which will begin at 5 p.m. Friday at the MWHS gym.
“No question, we have to take care of business on Friday,” Eggleston said. “We win on Friday, and assuming Lake Worth loses to Springtown and Castleberry (2-6) loses to Kennedale, we will clinch a playoff spot and set ourselves up for a chance to tie for third and get into that tiebreaker.
“But the bottom line is we have to win one more time to make the playoffs.”
Eggleston still is hoping to get that third-place tiebreaker game.
“Iowa Park is much better than last year,” she said. “And we hope to get that opportunity for a third-place tiebreaker match.
“But honestly, we can’t think past Diamond Hill on Friday, so if we take care of business then we will be able to look ahead. Winning on Friday and hopefully securing a playoff spot is a much bigger deal at this moment.”
In other 6-3A action on Friday, Castleberry will face Kennedale and Lake Worth will play Springtown.
