Kangaroos make the playoffs

The Weatherford Kangaroo football team qualified for the 2018 playoffs after a 28-15 win over L.D. Bell Friday night.

It’s Weatherford’s first playoff berth in 11 years.

Quarterback Ken Seals was 13 of 22 for 244 yards and three touchdowns in the air. He also added a rushing touchdown.

Weatherford finished the season in a three-way tie for fourth place in District 3-6A with Abilene and Richland. Per district rules, the Roos won the tiebreaker due to point differential against the Eagles and the Rebels.

The Roos will face 10-0 Arlington in the first round of the playoffs, most likely Friday night at UTA. The game will be broadcast on 102.5 and 88.5 Chuck FM.
