By Rollin Hadsell The News Staff Writer MALAKOFF-The Malakoff Tigers begin their journey towards playing at AT&T Sta- dium in mid-December. That journey starts with a matchup against the Troy Trojans tonight at 7:30 p.m. at MISD Sta- dium in Midlothian. The Tigers come into the gameranked third in the state in the AP Poll and undefeated at 10- 0, just the fourth time in their history to have an undefeated regular season. The Troy Tro- jans come in at 5-5 on the season and 3-3 in a tough District 10-3A, a district that has sixth- ranked Rockdale, Frank- lin and perennial play- off contender Cameron Yoe. Troy is coming off a 17-14 victory over McGregor in a winner- take-all game for the final playoff spot in the district. The Trojans come into the game averag- ing just over 23 points a game, with the defense allowing 32 points per contest. Malakoff's of- fense is averaging 48.6 points per game, while the defense gives up just 13.7 points per game. Troy's biggest win of the season was the McGregor game in which they had to win to make the playoffs. Malakoff has had many big wins this season, but the game against Teague that decided the district championship was the best one for the Tigers. The winner of to- night's game moves on to the area round and will face the winner of the Hempstead vs. Kirbyville matchup. office will be closed Thursday, November 24 in observance of Call Now to Plaoe Your Adl Advertising EARLY Deadlines are: Display Ad Deadline: Friday, Nov. 18 at 4 pm Word Ad Deadline: Monday, Nov. 21 at Noon for the Friday, November 25 t I ............
