HAWLEY, Texas — This is the first season Hawley has gone undefeated. The Bearcats look to continue their perfect season Thursday night against New Deal for their second playoff game.

"We're ready to go, we're ready to play. It seems like Thursday has taken forever to get here but it's finally tomorrow and we are excited to play," coach Ables added.

The Bearcats have been rolling past teams all season. Now sitting at 11-0, coach Ables tells me this team feels different.

"I feel like we are in a good spot right now. New Deal has challenges that will be hard to get through but I feel good about where we are right now."

Hawley takes on New Deal Thursday night at 7 p.m. at Snyder's Tiger Stadium. For more on this match-up, follow @caseybuschertv for pregame and post game coverage.
