The Post Antelopes will take on the Refugio Bobcats at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 18, 2019 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington for the Class 2A Division I UIL Football State Championship. Here's everything you need to know about the game.
It’s battle of two teams with very different state championship pedigrees.
Favored Refugio is back at AT&T Stadium playing for a state title for the fourth time in five seasons, while Post is making its first appearance.
Post, a team picked to finish third or fourth in its district by many outlets, has put together a magical season. The Antelopes eased into the state championship game with a convincing 35-7 win over Valley View in the state semifinals. In key moments in the red zone last week, Post’s versatile offense came through. Taytem Thetford tossed a touchdown pass on a 4th-and-two to put Post in the lead for good at 14-7 in the second quarter. He hauled in a 15-yard touchdown pass from Slayden Pittman in the third quarter to all put the game away at 28-7. Pittman had a monster game for PHS running for three touchdowns and throwing another. Post’s defense made up for a less-than-stellar outing in the regional finals by shutting down Valley View’s offense.
Refugio got pushed in the semifinals last week, but the Bobcats emerged from a slugfest with a 29-21 win over San Augustine, their second win over the Wolves in three seasons. Leading by eight with 8:38 left, Refugio’s offense grinded out the remainder of the game behind the tough running of Ysidro Mascorro, who ran for 160 yards and a touchdown. QB Austin Ochoa, whose health was a bit of a question coming into the game after getting banged up in the regional final victory over Holland, ran for two touchdowns and showed no signs of being less than 100 percent.
The Bobcats have the experience in these big games. They have the size to match Post in the trenches and they have an edge with speed on the outside. Post keeps it close, but Refugio pulls away in the second half to earn another state title.
