Committee vote keeps Lady Bobcats in playoffs Tuesday night

ORANGEFIELD — The District 21-3A executive committee voted Friday to not force a play-in game between the Orangefield Lady Bobcats and Hamshire-Fannett Lady Longhorns.

The decision came a day after speculation was reported Bridge City might have used an ineligible player in a win over Hamshire-Fannett.

The Lady Longhorns loss meant the Lady Bobcats will represent District 21-3A as the third place playoff team. Orangefield will face Huffman at 6 p.m. Tuesday at East Chambers High School.

It was possible the committee could have voted to say the Lady Cardinals used an ineligible player which would have forced the Lady Longhorns and Lady Bobcats to play a play-in game.
