The Hico Tigers (5-5, 2-2) face a more uphill battle tonight as they face the Windthorst Trojans (9-1, 3-1) at 7 p.m. in Tiger Stadium in Hico. The Trojans are in 2nd place in 7-2A District  and are on a three-game winning streak. The Tigers are in 3rd place in District 8-2A and are looking to avenge the lost in the bi-district round last season to the Trojans. 

Dublin and FAITH will take the field Friday evening in their bi-district matchups and The Flash will have more on them tomorrow!
