For the first time since 2010 Evadale is celebrating a playoff victory. Last Friday night the Rebels won a wild shootout over Timpson, 52-41. Next up is an Area Round showdown with Maud, the same team that eliminated Evadale last season.

While the Rebels are looking for their first Area Round win since 2010, it's you actually have to look back to 1991 to find the last time an Evadale football team won two playoff games in one postseason. In 2010 the Rebs received a first round bye into the Area playoffs.

Evadale (10-1) will face Maud (7-4) 7 pm Friday night at Tatum's Eagle Stadium.
