In their previous meeting, Merkel
made a narrow escape with a 22 - 19 win over Stamford
. Unfortunately for Merkel, the rematch didn't go the same way. Merkel received a tough blow as it fell 39 - 20 to Stamford.

The win bumped Stamford's record up to 2-1. The defeat dropped Merkel's record to 1-2.
Good luck to both teams in their upcoming games! Merkel will face off against Ballinger Friday at 7:30 PM. Meanwhile, Stamford will battle it out against Haskell on Friday at 7:30 PM.
