Pflugerville will return home this week for the Final game in the regular season at Kuempel Stadium.  The Connally game, originally scheduled for Nov 7th at home has been moved to Nov 8th at RRISD Stadium at 1pm.  The Panthers got a big win last week against the Austin Maroons, 33-16.  The victory kept the Panthers undefeated in District play, improving to 4-0.  Jeremy Burleson provided the game breaker with a 64 yard punt return, while the offense rolled up over 300 yards on the ground.

Akins began the season on a strong note with a 27-13 victory over Crockett, but it’s been down hill since then.  They’ve lost six straight games, all by large margins.  Connally beat them 45-7 two weeks ago and they were shut out 56-0 by Bowie last week.  They come in at 1-6, 0-4.

The Panthers were 12-4 overall and 4-3 in 14-5A play last season and made their second appearance in the State Championship game.  They will look to improve upon their best season since 1970.

Akins finished 1-9 last year, their lone win was over the now defunct Johnston Rams.  The Eagles have lost 29 consecutive district games, dating back to 2004.
