As the 2023 Campaign has played out, the La Feria Lions have struggled throughout the season. After a 1-3 Non-District, the Lions were set to turn the momentum around heading into District Play. Unfortunately, things did not go as planned.

Having not won a game since Week two against PSJA Southwest, the Lions have currently gone on a six game losing streak.

District Play began in Week Five against the Alice Coyotes. In a dominant performance, the Coyotes pulled away and won 41-6. Now 0-1 in District, La Feria faced off against the Tuloso-Midway Warriors in La Feria’s First District Home Game. After struggling early on, The Warriors took control and picked up a massive win over the Lions 47-7.

La Feria then hosted the Calallen Wildcats. In what was a rough night from the start, the Lions struggled on both sides of the ball and Calallen took advantage and defeated La Feria 63-0. The loss marked La Feria’s first shutout loss of the night.

The Lions picked up their first win over Hidalgo in a dominant contest 35-14. Looking to keep their momentum going, the Lions faced off against Zapata. Unfortunately, the Hawks picked up the win 31-7

Last season, La Feria lost their first three matchups in District, which were to Alice, Tuloso-Midway, and Calallen. The Lions then bounced back to defeat Hidalgo, Zapata, and HM King. At 1-4 and With one more game left against Kingsville King, the Lions Playoff scenarios look bleak, but they look to capture one more win.
