SAN ANTONIO, Texas (KXAN) — Lake Travis football continues its march toward the 6A-Division 1 State Championship and Weslaco wasn’t able to get in the Cavaliers way.
The Cavaliers advanced with a 52-17 win over the Weslaco Panthers Friday afternoon at Alamo Stadium in San Antonio. This was a rematch from the 2018 region semifinals when Lake Travis rolled over Weslaco 56-14.
Lake Travis was in control from the opening kickoff putting together five scoring drives in the first half for a 31-3 lead at halftime.
The Cavaliers will take on the winner of Laredo United and Converse Judson next week in the Region 4 Finals.
Lake Travis rebounded from a season opening loss to Arlington Martin to reel off 11 straight victories. Only one of those games has been decided by less than a touchdown — a 26-25 win against Westlake.
As one of the premiere programs in Texas, it’s no surprise that Lake Travis is playing deep into the postseason. The Cavaliers had a three-year state championship appearance streak snapped last year losing to Galena Park North Shore in the 6A State Semifinals.
Weslaco finished runner-up in District 31-6A.
