Dulles Beats Palacios 19-0 in '63 Bi-District Championship

Last week saw Dulles back into the AA play offs with a win over Sweeny and a Needville victory over Boling.  Had Boling won their game, the district race would have ended with a three-way tie at the top, and a coin toss would have determined who advanced into the playoffs. 

This game occurred on the evening of November 22nd, so there was a somber mood in the crowd.  I guess the NFL's announcement to play on Sunday influenced the UIL, but they would probably have run into all kinds of problems had they postponed the games because the playoffs would have extended beyond Christmas.

I recall watching Air Force One land at Andrews AFB, the Secret Service detail unload JFK's casket, and LBJ make his short address before we left home for the game in Sweeny.

This short schedule, which appeared in The Houston Post (I think), shows the state-wide field in the football play offs.

The Mirror featured the freshman team and predicted a bright future for Viking football.

The Dulles basketball team was gearing up its season without players still involved with football.

We end with a short article indicating there was some excitement at Dulles High.

As I mentioned last week, Rockwall faced Lake Highlands in their bi-district game.  Lake Highlands handed Rockwall it's only loss, so this was a chance for revenge and maybe the cause of a little anxiety.  

Here's a pregame article.

Didn't matter -- Rockwall stung 'em good.  At this point, I get the impression that Dulles and Rockwall are taking two very different paths into the play offs.
