HOUSTON (November 4, 2019) – The Lone Star Christian Sports Network (LSCSN.com) is pleased to announce that it has been given permission to broadcast both Southwest Preparatory Conference (SPC) football championships and the TAPPS Division V football championship on Saturday.
All three contests will be played in the greater Houston area.
The Southwest Preparatory Conference football championships will be rematches from 2018 and be held at the Houston Independent School District’s Butler Stadium (13755 S. Main St., Houston, TX 77035).
The 3A championship, which will kick off at 2 p.m., will feature the defending champion Fort Worth Country Day School (5-5, 5-1) against The Woodlands John Cooper School (7-2, 4-2).
Country Day won last year’s championship 55-41 over John Cooper and defeated the Dragons in Fort Worth on September 20 by a score of 27-7.
Episcopal High School (8-1, 5-0) and The Kinkaid School (6-4, 5-1) will meet at 7 p.m. to decide the 4A championship for the third straight year.
Kinkaid has won the 4A crown the past two years with wins of 38-21 and 41-21, while the Knights will be in the title game for the sixth straight year.
One school or the other has been in every 4A title game since 2009. During that time, the two teams have faced each other six times with Kinkaid coming away with the last three wins in 2015, 2017 and 2018.
Episcopal won its regular season contest over Kinkaid, 31-17, three weeks ago.
Kevin Brown will be joined on the call of these two contests by Dan Morgan for the 3A game and Jon Walk for the 4A contest. Walk was on the call of last year’s title game at Delmar Stadium with Tanner Shanks.
At 6 p.m. at Vikings Stadium in west Houston, The Village School will play host to St. Dominic Savio Catholic High School from Austin in the Division V championship of the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS).
This two-year realignment cycle, teams in TAPPS that did not play in a regular district have competed as independents, formed zones and then meet in an agreed upon title game.
The Vikings of The Village School went 8-1 overall and defeated all three of its zone opponents, clinching the spot with a hard-fought win over Katy Saint John XXIII, 28-21, last Friday. Meanwhile, St. Dominic Savio, currently undefeated with an 8-0 mark, won its only zone contest two weeks ago against San Antonio Texas Military Institute, 53-20, to secure the berth.
The Village School will be competing in its third TAPPS Division V championship game.
The Vikings lost the first two editions to El Paso Cathedral. The Irish won 37-14 in Brownwood in 2016 and two years ago grabbed a 31-28 decision in West.
Dan Morgan and Angel Guiterrez will work the contest.
All games will be carried along the Texas Sports Radio Network (tsrnsports.com) and can be listened to on mobile devices with free app downloads from the Apple Store and Google Play.
