FWISD WEEK 5: All FWISD schools in district action
Getting off on the right foot is the goal for every team entering district play, so it’s no surprise Polytechnic and Eastern Hills want to get an early jump on the playoff push when the two rivals square off Thursday night.
It’s the District 4-5A opener for the Parrots and Highlanders, who come in with matching 2-2 records and are both coming off losses in their final nondistrict game. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at Handley Field.
Eastern Hills began its run to the postseason last year with a 22-0 victory over Polytech to begin loop action. The two squads have faced each other every year since 2012, with the Highlanders claiming all seven of those meetings.
District play is now in full swing for all FWISD programs. Friday night is homecoming for both South Hills and North Side against Granbury (Clark Stadium) and Carter-Riverside (Handley), respectively.
