Battle in ‘District of Doom’ Between Chapel Hill + No. 3 Kilgore the Queen Game of the Week

Another week, another big-time matchup in District 16-3A, a.k.a. the “District of Doom.” Friday night’s meeting at Kilgore’s R.E. St. John Memorial Stadium between Chapel Hill and third-ranked Kilgore is the Queen Game of the Week.

A Chapel Hill (5-3, 3-1) victory would almost assuredly punch a ticket to the playoffs for the Bulldogs, who missed the postseason in 2012 after playing for back-to-back state championships in 2010 and 2011. A Kilgore (6-0, 3-0) win keeps it tied with Gilmer for the top spot in the district, preserving hope for a winner-take-all showdown between the two on the final night of regular season Nov. 8.

Chapel Hill enters the game having won consecutive games after suffering a 56-28 loss to top-ranked Gilmer on Oct. 4. Its three losses have come to Whitehouse, Carthage and Gilmer, whose combined record is 21-1. Chapel Hill is led by quarterback Andrew Black, who has totaled 2,159 yards offense and 26 touchdowns.

Kilgore, coming off a 24-6 win at Gladewater last week, has used a physical running game and a suffocating defense for its undefeated start to the season. Kilgore has limited opponents to just 9.8 points per game.

We’ll be live from the game with KLTV to bring you the preview at 6 p.m.
