This week, Midland Lee (8-1) and Permian (7-1) square off against each other on Friday at 7:30 PM. Permian's offensive line will need to gear up for a tough test against a Midland Lee defense that got six sacks against Frenship in its previous game.
Last week, Midland Lee took on Frenship. Midland Lee's offense came in ready to rumble, picking up 41 points in the first half. That put it at a 41 - 14 advantage. The offense continued to do well in the second half, scoring 33 points. In the end, Midland Lee steamrollered its way to an easy 74 - 35 victory.
Meanwhile, Permian has netted another blowout to add to its collection (now totaling six) after its most recent game. It had all the answers against Odessa last week, winning 35 - 9. The margin wasn't a surprise since Permian is ranked many positions ahead of Odessa in the MaxPreps state rankings.
Both Permian and Midland Lee are bound to feel confident after their prior matchups, but one team's ego will take a hit. We'll find out on Friday which one when the teams meet up this week.
