Brownwood Lions' regular-season finale at Midlothian Heritage canceled
The Brownwood football team's regular-season finale, scheduled for 2 p.m. Saturday at Midlothian Heritage, has been canceled, Brownwood head coach Sammy Burnett confirmed Tuesday.
If played, the final regular-season game would not have impacted the playoff seeding of any District 5-4A Division I team.
Heritage (8-2 overall, 4-0 in district) is the district champion and No. 1 playoff seed. Waco La Vega (7-2, 3-1) will be the No. 2 seed, Stephenville (5-5, 3-2) the No. 3 seed, and Brownwood (4-5, 2-2) the No. 4 seed.
Burnett said after Monday’s district loss to La Vega that Heritage would make the decision whether to play Brownwood on Saturday as part of the agreement by the District 5-4A DI executive committee that allowed the Lions to rescind COVID-19 forfeits to La Vega and Heritage.
Brownwood has set its Class 4A DI bidistrict game against Kennedale (7-0-1) for 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 13, at Kennedale. The Wildcats are the No. 1 seed from District 6-4A.
