Navarro vs Lago Vista

Antwoin Mebene gets help breaking through a pair of Viking defenders during the the Panthers' win over Lago Vista on Friday, Oct. 7, 2022 in Lago Vista.

The Navarro Panthers (8-4) will try to knock off the Lago Vista Vikings (9-3) for the second time this season when the teams square off Friday afternoon in the Region IV semifinals.

Beating the same team twice has proven difficult for the Panthers. In each of the past three seasons, they have been eliminated from the playoffs by a team they defeated in the regular season — Wimberley in 2019 and 2020, and Cuero in 2021.
