Hallettsville wide receiver  Trent McGee catches a pass and tries to race into the end zone but went out of bounds just as the clock ran out in the first half. The Brahmas face Jourdanton in the area round of the playoffs Friday night.

Hallettsville's season nearly ended last week, but it prevailed to play Jourdanton Friday night in Seguin.

The Brahmas edged past Lago Vista on a flea-flicker touchdown pass from Nate Kowalik to Trenton McGee with 15 seconds left in the game.

The victory sealed their Class 2A, Division I bi-district playoff game against Lago Vista.

Hallettsville coach Tommy Psencik was glad to see his team advance. He knows, however, the team is far from done with its season.

"After you come out of a game that's as strong as Lago Vista, you think that would pay off," Psencik said. "We're just taking it one game at a time. We're just trying to improve week to week."

For the Brahmas (11-0), last week's win kept their perfect season intact. But that could change Friday as they play the Indians (9-2).

"Their quarterback likes to take things into their own hands," Psencik said. "They're capable of coming right at you. We have to be consistent on both sides. We're just going to see what happens."

In last week's win, the Brahmas gave up a season-high 35 points.

Yes, they won, but giving up points could present a problem if the Brahmas have trouble scoring.

"We know we can improve in different areas," Psencik said. "The kids are working hard and I think they're focused on the task at hand."

The Brahmas will face an offense which includes Edward Ruiz and Chase Harrison, who have combined for a 17 touchdowns.

"This week, we saw a lot of concentration and I'm hoping it pays off tomorrow," Psencik said.
