Kingston Roars Into District Play, Blows Out Plainview

Body
Friday night saw Kingston opening district play, hosting the Plainview Indians. Kingston came into the game 3-0, having dispatched three 2A opponents with relative ease, but with questions about how well the Redskins would adjust to the level of competition their first year in Class 3A. The Indians promised to be the kind of test that would answer many of those questions. While Plainview was winless coming into the game, the Indians had played two 4A opponents and the Pilot Point (Texas) Bears, and after their huge 2019 season that saw them losing in the 3A state title game, the Indians were picked to repeat as district champs this year. This Friday, however, while Plainview put up a struggle early, Kingston dominated the second half, and answered many questions about how well the Redskins would play in Class 3A with a 49-14 whipping.
