ROUND ROCK, Texas - Week 9 of the Central Texas high school football season brings another FOX 7 Friday Football Game of the Week!
Every Thursday, FOX 7 Austin will feature one upcoming high school football game and offer you, the viewer, the chance to vote on who you think will win.
Playoff hopes are on the line Friday at Dragon Stadium when the Westwood Warriors take on the Stony Point Tigers.
The Tigers and Warriors, both 2-2 in District 25-6A play, are part of a four-way tie for third place, with all teams vying for the final two playoff spots in the district. The winner takes a huge step towards a post-season berth, with the loser's playoff hopes being dealt an enormous blow.
Westwood comes into this match-up on the heels of a 17-14 nail-biting win over McNeil, while Stony Point comes in with two straight district wins, including last week's 7-0 upset win over Vista Ridge.
Both teams look to get to back into the playoffs for the first time in a few seasons. Stony Point last made the post-season in 2019, while Westwood last qualified in 2017.
