Looking for its second straight District 27-2A championship, the Brazos Cougarettes sat at 7-2 heading into the penultimate week of play.
With a final game at home against the Weimar Wildcats and a road trip to the Prairie Lea Indians serving as the final matches of the season, Brazos will look to salvage a season split with Weimar having already avenged its only other loss in district play to the Shiner Comanches.
Once the playoff picture is locked in, the Cougarettes will be on the search to continue its postseason winning ways and extend a bi-district winning streak to eight.
Since taking over as head coach, Denyse Fernandez has only added onto a playoff run that most recently grew with a 3-1 win over the Kenedy Lions last year as the District 27 champion. That was the extent of the Brazos playoffs, however, with the Snook Blue Jays earning the Area Championship by a similar 3-1 margin.
Second-place Shiner and third-place Weimar also picked up postseason wins last year but the fourth-seeded Flatonia Bulldogs were the lone team from the district without a bi-district championship from the 2018 campaign.
This year’s playoff tournament will begin with the first round on Nov. 4 and 5 and will begin paring down teams until the final two remain standing to fight for the garland and gold.
