The opening round of the playoffs will begin Thursday with half of the postseason field reduced by the weekend.
Seven area teams in the playoff field: Travis, George Ranch, Foster, Lamar Consolidated, Needville, East Bernard and Brazos.

Foster (6-4) will travel to New Caney (10-0) on Friday to play the Eagles at 7 p.m.
With its week 10 victory, Lamar Consolidated earned the No. 2 seed in District 10-5A DII and will face Lindale (7-3) on Friday at Traylor Stadium.
Needville (8-2) faces Canyon Lake (6-4) on Friday at Merrill Green Stadium in Bryan at 7:30 p.m.
