The one I think of immediately was Amherst 1994. Lost to Lazbuddie surprisingly in district. Then tied Meadow 12-12 in what I think what was called Area back then, advancing on penetrations. Kicked a field goal in the final seconds. Then beat Milford in the final in one of the coldest games I have ever experienced at Abilene Wylie. I got a hot chocolate and hot dog at the concession stand and they were both cold by the time I got to the field.

I think there may be one more

Rival Strawn lost to Gordon in both 2003 and 2008 to finish second in district then won the rest of the way to the State championship those years.

Even though it seems every year one team blows the other, there is always a lot of trash-talk between Ira and Hermleigh. In the more recent years the games have been far more competitive than in the past. This is probably due to the kids of these towns growing up in sports together in Snyder and playing against each other as soon as they can participate, being there is only 20 miles that separate them.

In 2015 Abbott finished second to Milford then went on to win state.

Richland Springs and Eden
Panther Creek and Santa Anna
Lohn and Rochelle
Dell City and Sierra Blanca
Buena Vista and Grandfalls
Ft. Davis and Marfa
Klondike and Sands

This is a bit off-topic but Gordon and Gorman should have a rivalry based on geography and similarity of their names haha!

This year is the 86th meeting of Ropes vs Meadow and probably the last for awhile. Meadow leads the series 46-33-6. This will be homecoming for Ropes and the Texas Tech freshman band will be there to play. Should be a full house.

May and Zephyr, although they are no longer in district play together they meet every year in pre-district play and it is always a hard fought game (generally).

Why? Is Ropes going back to 11 man?

Balmorhea vs. Ft. Davis is a bit of a rivalry. But it's been all Balmorhea for probably over 5+yrs now.
