It was a day that not disappoint for the Andrews Mustangs.
Despite going through a group filled with smaller classification opposition, the Mustangs showed that their 3-0 group showing was no mistake by punching their ticket to College Station after a 33-18 victory over Brownwood, an opponent with a lot of history dating back to the most recent meeting in the area round this past season.
Andrews sets up their fourth state berth after missing out in 2016. The Mustangs in black and gold was not the only team that was represented from the 432, Wink, Midland Greenwood, Coahoma, Kermit and Crane capped off their showings in pool play in the morning session.
After falling 63-30 to juggernaut Sweetwater, Wink bounced back in Pool B, topping first year 7-on-7 team in Wellman-Union 40-8 and capturing a victory in tough fashion against a talented squad, Stamford to finish the group in 2nd.
Midland Greenwood started their pool play showing going 2-0 with wins against Coahoma and Trinity Christian. Prior to the state qualifying games, the Rangers had a tough task at hand in attempt to make the qualifying round but Brownwood ousted the Rangers 52-13, a game that seemed to be a close contest in its entirety.
Coahoma and Kermit struggled in their respective groups. The Bulldogs went 0-3, falling to a tough Brownwood team, Lubbock Trinity Christian and the Rangers while Kermit scraped past Anson for their only win in the group stage after falling to Andrews and Winters in overtime.
After taking part in back-to-back nail-biters, which fell both ways for Big Spring, the Steers ran out of steam for a win in the final group stage game, being outlasted by group winners Graham, 61-18, to finish 1-2 in Snyder.
Andrews now join Alpine and Pecos, who qualified to state in Sonora on Friday.
