The Monitor sports staff has chosen the Donna-Edinburg North game at 7 p.m. Thursday in Edinburg as its Week 5 Game of the Week.
Both Donna and Edinburg North enter Thursday’s District 30-5A game unbeaten. Along with district rival Sharyland, the Redskins and Cougars are two of the last three undefeated Class 5A teams in the Rio Grande Valley.
Donna is 4-0 overall, 2-0 in district play and has been challenged in only one game this season. The Redskins have won their four games by a combined score of 157-55, including a 56-13 rout last week of La Joya Palmview.
Edinburg North enters Thursday’s game at 5-0 overall and 3-0 in district play, but the Cougars’ road to an undefeated start has seen considerably closer games. Edinburg North has won two of its games by a combined six points — a 21-20 victory over rival Edinburg Economedes, and last week’s 8-3 win against Edinburg High.
