FOOTBALL: Trip to NRG on line for Indians

If Port Neches-Groves wins Friday’s bi-district game at home against Houston Northside, the Indians will play at NRG Stadium for the second year in a row.

PNG coach Brandon Faircloth confirmed the possible location Thursday. The winner Friday would play either Lindale or Montgomery.

PNG beat Texas City 24-17 in the second half of a doubleheader with Nederland and Manvel at NRG Stadium last November. Both of those games were played in the area round.

PNG lost the next week in Humble to eventual 5A Division II champion College Station.
