Beyond the Lake Travis-Westlake showdown in the Class 6A, Division I state quarterfinals, here are three postseason matchups to look forward to this week:
• Regents vs. Grapevine Faith Christian, 7 p.m. (Panther Stadium, Hewitt)
Junior running back Conner Allen piled up five touchdowns as Regents (13-0) rattled off 20 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to beat San Antonio Holy Cross 41-22 last week in a TAPPS Division II state semifinal. One of Allen’s TDs came on a 41-yard screen pass from Jace Franklin, who has a 41:3 touchdown-to-interception ratio this season. Grapevine Faith (11-2) opened the season with a 49-0 shutout of visiting St. Michael’s, a team that Regents defeated 55-26 on Sept. 23.
• Round Rock vs. The Woodlands, 2 p.m. (McLane Stadium, Waco)
Playing in a regional final for the first time in school history, Round Rock (10-3) topped Coppell 49-45 on Saturday, when the Dragons completed a 75-yard touchdown drive in the closing minute of a shootout that saw the teams combine for 1,076 yards, 55 first downs and 13 TDs. The Woodlands (13-0) defeated Bowie 52-21 last week in a Class 6A, Division I matchup as the Highlanders topped 40 points for the 10th consecutive game. Five of their seven touchdowns against the Bulldogs covered at least 30 yards.
• Dripping Springs vs. Richmond Foster, 2 p.m. (Alamodome, San Antonio)
For the second time in three playoff victories, Dripping Springs (12-1) scored more than 60 points while rolling past Mission Veterans Memorial 69-35 Saturday in a Class 5A, Division I regional semifinal. The Tigers piled up 35 first-quarter points as Reese Johnson threw two touchdown passes and Teo Brinckmann ran for a pair of scores. In an area-round playoff on Nov. 18, Richmond Foster (13-0) defeated Alamo Heights 55-27. Four weeks earlier, Dripping Springs outlasted Alamo Heights 64-54 in a district contest.
