The Anson Tigers are facing one of the toughest challenges in the 2nd round in the Big Country.

Head coach Keith Woolf's Tigers are scheduled to face Region I power Stratford.

The Elks have been good for years, and they are the team that knock Anson out of the playoffs last year.

Losing to Stamford was bad, but the Tigers are using the loss to Stratford as playoff fuel.

"Right after that game, all of us juniors, seniors this year,  we came up with this motto 'unfinished business.' That motto is more towards Stratford. Everybody thinks it's more towards Stamford, but it's towards Stratford because we felt like we should have won that game. Just mistakes killed us in that game," said Mitchell Hudson.

"We do talk about last year's game,and how we had an opportunity to win the game at the end and we just didn't get it done.  We talk about the execution of our offense, and defense we've got to do a little better job of stopping them. We know they're a really good team, and a really physical team. They like to run the ball a lot, and we've got to be able to step up and make those plays," said head coach Keith Woolf.

This is one of the best match ups in the state this week. Anson is ranked 6th, and Stratford is 2nd.
