Vian vs. Hennessey.

Lincoln Christian vs. Millwood.

Jones vs. Stroud.

All three of those games would be worthy Class 2A championship game matchups.


Each of those games, though, will happen Friday night in the third round.

“There's probably not seven points difference in all of those three games right there,” Jones coach Dave Martin said. “It's definitely going to be some really tough matchups for the top teams.”

With No. 1 Davis losing to Millwood last week, not only is the field wide open, but there's a depth to the class rarely seen.

“It's really unique,” Lincoln Christian coach Darren Melton said. “There are some really, really good teams that are going to be sitting at home next week. There's some really good teams sitting home now.

“It's been interesting to watch things evolve and transpire the way they have. There are just some titanic matchups in our class.”

While all of the games are big in this round, Jones-Stroud might be the biggest.

Both stand 12-0.

Stroud hasn't allowed more than 14 points in any game, and no opponent has come within 20.
