Tonight, the Rockwall Yellowjackets varsity football team take on North Mesquite at 7:30 pm at Wilkerson Sanders Memorial Stadium. Not only is it senior night and the last home game of the regular season, but the Jackets will also be battling for a spot in the playoffs.

The Jackets are currently 4-5 and 4-2 in district play. The best and easiest way path for securing a place in the playoffs is to beat North Mesquite. However, if that doesn’t happen–and this is where it gets tricky–there is still a possibility to make it in.

Due to some crazy tie-breaker rules, if North Mesquite beats Rockwall by fewer than eleven points, Rockwall would be in. On the other hand, if North Mesquite defeats Rockwall by more than ten points, Rockwall would be out.

 

While a loss would not necessarily keep the Jackets out, it would make things a lot more difficult.

The bottom line is this: Win, and Jackets are in.
