Giddings to Wharton

by Mike Organ

The Giddings Buffs will travel to Wharton this week. The Tigers are an enigma after two weeks. In week one, their game with Rice Consolidated was cancelled at halftime with the Tigers holding a one-point lead. This past weekend they lost to Smithville by a wide margin. Rice is ranked in the top five in Class 2A and Smithville is not ranked in the top 150 in 3A.

Wharton has good speed and Coach Stacey Hunt says the offensive line is their strong point. The Tigers lost to Bellville in the first round of the playoffs last season. Wharton has a chance to make the playoffs again.

This should be a game Giddings will win by a wide margin, but you never know which Wharton team will show up.
