The 2013 football season has treated the Van Alstyne Panthers pretty well.
After suffering through a 1-9 campaign last year, the Panthers turned things around and finished this season 6-4.
"Most of us have really just come together as a team, and we've just clicked throughout the year," said center Will Brogdon.
The Panthers move on to the second round of the playoffs after a 35-8 win over Boyd, and will now take on the Malakoff Tigers, a team with a 10-1 record.
The two teams will match up at Hanby Stadium in Mesquite this Friday at 7:30.
