LONE OAK —
The Eustace Bulldogs secured a playoff berth with a 26-22 win over the Lone Oak Buffaloes Friday night at Buffalo Stadium.
With the win, first-year head coach Heath Ragle's team finished out the regular season at 5-5 overall and 3-3 in district play.
Ragle praised the play of Thomas Hyde and Zach Hughes on the offensive and defensive side of the ball.
They will head into the Class 2A playoffs next week as the No. 4-seed behind Malakoff, Winnsboro and Lone Oak.
The Bulldogs finished last season with a 5-6 record after a loss to Daingerfield in the bi-district playoffs under head coach Brian Herman.
