Star-Telegram - - Sports - BY BRIAN GOSSET bgos­[email protected]­

Wall, which is just out­side of San An­gelo, sits 200 miles south­west of Brock. Yet the two are strik­ing up quite the ri­valry.

In the bat­tle of the birds, the Hawks and Ea­gles are meet­ing in the play­offs for the fifth­straight sea­son at 7 p.m. on Fri­day at Shotwell Sta­dium in Abi­lene dur­ing the Class 3A Di­vi­sion I re­gional round.

No. 3 Brock (11-1) of­fi­cially be­gan its foot­ball dom­i­nance in 2014, its first UIL var­sity sea­son. Since then the Ea­gles have gone 65-7 with two trips to a state fi­nal and one cham­pi­onship in 2015.

Along the way, the Hawks (9-2) have been in their path each year with Brock win­ning three of them. Fri­day’s game will mark a fourth time they’ve met in the third round.

The only win un­der Wall’s belt was a big one when the Hawks handed the de­fend­ing champ its only loss, 28-17, in the 2016 state quar­ter­fi­nals, a year after Brock won its ti­tle.
