Coin toss helps Jefferson secure final playoff spot in District 1-5A

The muddled playoff picture in District 1-5A cleared up Saturday afternoon at the Sun Bowl.

Bowie and Jefferson battled in another edition of the Battle of the Southside.

Bowie needed a win to clinch the final playoff spot in District 1-5A, but Jefferson had other ideas.

The Silver Foxes wanted to keep their playoff hopes alive and they did just that by topping the Bowie Bears by a final of 26-16.

The Jefferson win led to a 5-way tie for the 4th and final playoff spot in the district.

Bowie, Irvin, Austin, El Paso and Jefferson all ended the season with a district record of 2-5.

A coin flip was held after the game at the Sun Bowl with the Silver Foxes winning the toss and securing the final playoff spot.

Jefferson will face Eastlake Friday at the Socorro Student Activities Complex (SAC) at 7:30 p.m.
