CISCO, Texas – The Blinn Buccaneers held up their end, and the Tyler Apaches helped close the deal.
Blinn clinched the fourth and final playoff spot in the Southwest Junior College Football Conference (SWJCFC) with a 44-34 win over Cisco College here Saturday.
The Bucs will play the Trinity Valley Cardinals, the conference champion, next Saturday on the road in Athens, Texas. Kickoff is at 3;00 and the game can be heard live on KWHI at 2:30 with Mark McLain.
Blinn (4-5, 3-3) had to beat Cisco in order to keep its playoff hopes alive, but even a win didn’t guarantee the final seed. The Bucs needed seventh-ranked Tyler to beat Kilgore, and the Apaches did just that, knocking out the Rangers 42-12.
Tyler will take on Navarro in its playoff opener.
