The Skinny

Last Week

Leander lost to Vandegrift 34-6 and dropped to 1-1 in District 25-6A. Hays defeated Lehman 35-7 to pick up its first District win of the season. The Lions are in the heart of the district playoff race and they could use a big win this week. 

Playoff hopes

For Leander, this game is key for the playoff run. The Lions still control their own destiny, but have a tough test next week against Lake Travis. So, a win for Leander would make the Lions a favorable bet to make the playoffs.
