Pottsboro, Savoy advance on weather delay Thursday

It was the night of the storms, and the Cardinals, as Pottsboro and Savoy each reached the third round of the playoffs.

The Pottsboro Cardinals endured a weather delay that exceeded two hours before they could wrap up a tight 14-13 win over Redwater on Thursday.

With just over 9 minutes left to play in the 4th quarter and Pottsboro holding onto a 14-7 lead, weather became a factor. After a 2-plus hour delay, Redwater scored a touchdown, but went for a 2 point conversion that failed. Pottsboro held on for the win and advanced to round three.

The Savoy Cardinals endured a weather delay at the start of their game, but went on to beat Gordon 22-6. The weather was not the only thing causing a slow start, offenses were hindered too. Savoy lead 8-0 at the half. Scoring picked up in the final two quarters when the Cardinals won 22-6 and advanced to the regional finals next week.
