VAN ALSTYNE, Texas (KTEN) - The Van Alstyne Panthers are gearing up to face Aubrey, a district opponent, in the regional quarterfinals later this week. 

Aubrey won all three games in the regular season against Van Alstyne, but all were close. The Panthers are hoping their knowledge of Aubrey will help them this time.

"I think a lot of those games are close and I think we can scratch it out and keep going deep in the playoffs," said Van Alstyne senior Riley Dancer.

The best-of-three series will be played at Prosper Rock Hill with game one on Thursday at 7:30 p.m.
