GOTW: Seymour vs Petrolia

Our Newschannel 6 Game of the Week for Week 7 features the Petrolia Pirates for the third time this season, as they host the Seymour Panthers in the District 7-2A Div. II opener for both teams.

Both teams enter this week at 4-1 on the season, among the four teams with that record in the district, which is likely the strongest in the state at that classification. Electra and Haskell, who will face off in Haskell on Friday, also hold that record.

The Pirates defeated Seymour a year ago, 21-18, but neither team won another district game that season. Both have much-higher goals in 2015, as really any four of the six teams in the district could make the playoffs, in almost any order.

We'll hear from both teams all week as we prepare for the game, which kicks off at 7 p.m. Friday at the new Pirate Stadium.

Then, we'll have extended highlights Friday night at 11 p.m. on the Friday Night High School Football Update, on the CW Texoma!

You can find the CW Texoma on DirecTV channel 5 throughout Texoma, on Byers-Petrolia Cable channel 24, Suddenlink channel 8 in Seymour, and Time Warner Cable Channel 5 in Wichita Falls!

If you have Dish Network, the CW Texoma is unfortunately not available, but you can watch the show in its entirety, LIVE, at Newschannel6Now.com!
