The Newton Eagles have been the favorites to win it all in Class 3A Division two since day one. Now the Arp Tigers have a chance to say something about that. Arp (11-2) will take on undefeated Newton Friday at 7:30pm at Dragon Stadium in Nacogdoches in the Region III Final. Arp earned its shot at the 13-0 Eagles by beating Crockett 35-32 on a last second 38-yard field goal by Ford Merritt last Friday in the Regional semis at Palestine Westwood.
