"Lucio expects Tigers, Ingram to be a fun game" by: Mike Reddell

   Tidehaven Head Coach David Lucio is looking forward to a “fun night” Friday when his Tigers play Ingram Tom Moore in the first round of UIL playoffs.
   Tidehaven (4-6) is coming off a lopsided, 52-6 win over Bloomington last Friday, having secured a playoff with a third-place finish in District 14-3A-2.
   Lucio said the Tigers’ hard work enabled them to turn around a season that began with four straight losses.
   “We knew going into the season things could be rough to start, but if we kept plugging away we would get it going. “We’ve endured a lot, from not being able to play home games, to losing top players to transfer and injury,” the coach said. 
   “A lot of people bailed on us, but the kids kept at it. No one quit, every week they just kept working. 
   “I’m excited about the immediate future, and the years to come with this group of young men.

   The Bay City Blackcats will get a week off to savor their win over El Campo – after 12 seasons on the losing end of this historic Texas football rivalry – and begin preparing for the playoffs.
   “It was a big night - more so for the kids,” Blackcat Head Coach Patrick Matthews said about the 31-24 victory over the Ricebirds last Friday, Nov. 2.
   “Those young men have battled all year. They have had their up and downs with things not going their way, but they come back every game.”
   The Bay City-El Campo game is Texas football’s longest consecutive game rival. The two teams have played 115 total games – 99 of them consecutively.
   To Matthews, the big takeaway from the game was that it was “the first time kids played four quarters. We actually put two halves together.”
   It also was the first road win this season, he pointed out.
