BEAUMONT, Texas — With district races coming to a close, things are particularly interesting in 21-5A.
Entering the night the top four teams were separated by just two games with two games remaining on the schedule.
Things would become clearer on Tuesday night with Port Neches-Groves and Barbers Hill picking up wins.
The Indians 7-6 victory over Galena Park gives them a chance to clinch at least a share of the district crown with another win over the Yellowjackets Friday.
Meanwhile the Eagles 5-2 win against Nederland keeps them in the running. Another victory over the Bulldogs would also give The Hill at least a share of the 21-5A title, though PNG swept the season series.
Nederland is currently holding a slim one game lead over Galena Park and Crosby for third place.
