For the second straight week, the Greenwood defense posted a shutout, while the offense, behind quarterback Kam Williams, was productive once again in beating Perryton in a Region I-3A Division II area playoff at Greg Sherwood Memorial Stadium.
Greenwood (9-3) advanced to play Graham, a 42-28 winner over Glen Rose, in the regional round tentatively set for 7 p.m. Friday in Sweetwater.
Greenwood rode the wave of a 51-0 win over Clint the week before, and the defense looked like it as it held Perryton (7-5) to 219 total yards. Perryton also turned the ball over on downs three times in GHS territory.
Perryton moved the ball at times but couldn’t get any consistency going as the Greenwood defense did a good job playing coverage. And the defensive line did a good job of either batting down passes or putting pressure on sophomore quarterback Justin Ventura.

Brandon Allen Allen rushed 27 times for 196 yards and six touchdowns, including two in the pivotal fourth quarter with a hurting ankle, as Eastland fought off Muleshoe in a Region I-2A Division I area playoff.
Eastland (9-2) advanced to face Bangs, which blasted Idalou 23-6.
Muleshoe ended its season at 9-3.
The game was a rematch of last year’s Region I championship game, won by Muleshoe, 43-36.
Eastland lost a 12-point halftime lead after Muleshoe owned the third quarter. The Mavs got the second-half kickoff but fumbled on their second play. It went downhill from there.
When Mules quarterback Caleb Wood ran 6 yards for a touchdown with no time on the clock at the end of the third quarter, it was Muleshoe on top, 27-26, despite a failed two-point conversion.
An interference call against the Mules on third-and-11 breathed life into the Mavericks, who got a 21-yard touchdown pass from Josh Moylan to Matt Majors six plays later. Moylan’s run made it 34-27.
The Mules could not handle Allen, who scored four touchdowns and ran for 78 yards on 10 carries.
