VAN — Palestine headed to Van Friday after a big win over Henderson in their district opener. While that solid victory was a confidence booster, PHS harbored no false expectations of an easy contest in this District 10-4A, Division 1 meeting.

Still, ultimately it was the Vandals with the 21-14 win.
