CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Flour Bluff Hornets' midseason district game against Gregory-Portland helped get their season back on track, even in a loss. Now the two are set for a playoff rematch in the third round.
The Hornets played one of their worst halves of football in recent memory in that game against the Wildcats, going down 30-6 at the halftime before rallying late to fall 37-27.
Coach Chris Steinbruck says the way his team responded in that game helped turned things around. The Hornets are currently on a six-game winning streak since then including a dominant win over then-state-ranked Veterans Memorial.
Now, the two are primed for an all-local rematch in the 5A-I Region Semifinal with the winner on to the fourth round against either Vets or McAllen Memorial. Flour Bluff and G-P will face off Friday at 8 PM at the Alamodome in San Antonio.
