Waco La Vega 44, Argyle 20
The Eagles’ struggles with Waco La Vega continued on Friday night, as their season came to an end.
It was the second straight year that La Vega defeated Argyle in the state quarterfinals.
Argyle trailed 10-0 in the first quarter, when Bo Hogeboom brought the game to with four points on a 75-yard touchdown pass to Cole Kirkpatrick.
The Pirates scored 21 unanswered points before Argyle struck again, this time on a 5-yard touchdown pass from Hogeboom to Cade Merka in the second quarter to make it 31-13 La Vega going into the half.
The Pirates scored twice more, and in spite of a 21-yard touchdown pass from Hogeboom to Kirkpatick late in the fourth quarter, Argyle could not mount a comeback.
Argyle (13-1) won the district 7-4A championship this season, defeating Dallas Carter in bi-district, Stephenville at area and Brownwood at regionals to reach the state quarterfinals.
A hard fought battle and the @_colekirkpatrick TD closes the game, but not enough and the @ArgyleGridiron season comes to an end. Final score, La Vega wins 44-20. #txhsfb #dctf pic.twitter.com/9UTaLHPhxH
