MIDLAND, Tx – Midland Christian is one game away from playing for a state championship, but they have to go through a familiar opponent.
The Mustangs will get a rematch against Dallas Parish Episcopal in the state semifinal round. The Mustangs nearly beat Parish earlier in the season, but the Panthers scored a touchdown in the final seconds of the game.
Head coach Greg McClendon said he thinks the Mustangs surprised Parish with their effort in the previous game after losing big to the Panthers last season. But he said he doesn’t think his team will have that same element of surprise for this next game.
The two will go head-to-head this Saturday at Abilene Christian University. Kick-off is set for 2 p.m. The winner will advance to the state championship game.
