KISD: Ridge Finishes 10-0; Varsity Football Playoff Details Set
The UIL Class 6A football regular season has come to an end, and the varsity teams from Fossil Ridge, Central, and Keller High have earned a spot in the postseason.
All three teams are set for Bi-District matchups with teams from District 4-6A on Friday, November 17. Haltom High earned District 3-6A’s fourth playoff spot, and along with Keller, will enter the Class 6A Division I bracket, due to their larger enrollments. Central and District 3-6A Champion Fossil Ridge will compete in Division II.
Fossil Ridge won the District 3-6A Championship outright, becoming the first Keller ISD football team to go a perfect 10-0 in the regular season. The Panthers have earned a date with Arlington High in the Bi-District round of the playoffs, and will host the Colts at 7:30 p.m. Friday, November 17, at Keller ISD Athletic Complex (500 Pate Orr Road North).
Central finished in a tie for second in the 3-6A standings and will take on the 4-6A Champion Mansfield Tigers at 7:30 p.m. Friday, November 17, at Vernon Newsom Stadium (3700 E. Broad Street in Mansfield).
