Friday night could have been a disaster for the smaller Coyotes as they were facing the much bigger and deeper Harlingen South Hawks from Class 6A. Instead, the Coyotes played inspired and tough football to match the Hawks in almost every facet of the game. In the end, turnovers were the difference as the Hawks won 14-7 to move to 3-0 on the season as the Coyotes fell to 0-3.
Next up for the Alice Coyotes is yet another home game vs. 4A Valley power Hidalgo who the Coyotes defeated in the Bi-District round last season. Game time is set for 7:30 pm in Memorial Stadium. This game will also mark the 2021 Homecoming game for Alice ISD.
