Familiar Foes at it again

by Michael Cotton
 
It is getting to be like an old love song, having a familiar ring to it. They keep meeting up in the playoffs like it is their destiny. Five times before they have met before, with the last time being in the 2013 playoff, where the Trojans claimed their only win in the series 43-28. The Coyotes of Richland Springs were young a year ago and so were the Trojans, so this year’s match up would look to play out as a real barn burner. The Coyotes are an offensive powerhouse averaging over 66 points per game.

Lady Trojans reload for 2014

by Michael Cotton
 
They have picked up where they left off last season, only this time they look to have more depth than they had last season. After a year in which they used five players for most of the minutes, the 2014 version of Lady Trojans basketball features a team that utilizes all 12 players on the squad. In their opener against Olglesby the Lady Trojans had 10 different players score points. Starters Diesha Clark had 12, Jaylonn Walker 23, Alyssa Brooks 9, Keosha Eddington 3, and Mykel Castilleja 10. Off the bench Nakevia Drones scored 9 points, Essence Gilmore 5, Natori Thomas 5, Ijionea Cephas 3, and Tinece Williams 3, in the 82-19 win.

Rematch from 2013

They have met once before in the playoffs, so there will be no unfamiliarity factor going into the game for either team.
Jonesboro is a power running football team similar to the Abbott Panthers, one of two teams to beat Calvert. Their offense is built around quarterback Tom Isom and running backs Thai Robuck (1460 yards, 30 touchdowns) and HB/ WR Robert Robuck.

They met last season in Franklin and the Eagles led early 14-7 before falling to the Lions. This is a rivalry that goes a long way back. The two teams have met a total of 10 times with the Lions holding a 7-3 advantage. For the Hearne Eagles the start of their district season begins in a big way by jumping right into the fire. They open against the defending 2013 District Champions, the Franklin Lions. The Lions are again the pre-season favorite to win the district, so the Eagles get tested right out of the gate.

Bouncing back, after bump in road

On Friday the Calvert Trojans will play host to the Waco Methodist Bulldogs.  The two teams have no history, as this will be the 1st meeting of the two squads.  Waco Methodist is coming off a 10-1 campaign and a State Bi-district Finals appearance in 2013. This season they are in a rebuilding mode with only All-State safety Roland Bridgewater and C Jakeema White back from last years playoff group.  They have begun the 2014 season 2-1, without missing much of a beat, having put up 66 points in each of the 1st two games.  They suffered their first loss to Waco Live Oak this past weekend 43-0. The Bulldogs struggled on offense against the defending State Champion Falcons and could never get untracked.  They will look to find the success they enjoyed early against a strong Calvert defense.  The Trojans have made it tough on their opponents all year, as they continue their schedule of 2013 playoff teams. This will be the 4th team in succession for Calvert.

Big Week for Lady Mustangs

The Mumford Lady Mustangs have begun the 2014 campaign with a vengeance.  They have set themselves to the task of becoming a factor in the district volleyball race.  The Lady Mustangs have proven early, that they can be a force on the court.  Backed by the splendid early play of junior Abbey Eckenrode and her teammates.  This should come as no surprise to those who follow the sport. Mumford Volleyball traditionally has fielded a competitive team. With the new alignment, they find themselves grouped with the Lady Eagles from Milano, a perennial powerhouse in the sport, so they will need to play well to earn a playoff spot. However, don’t feel sorry for the Lady Mustangs, they are well prepared for what lies ahead.  This team won’t back down from any challenge, so expect them to be in the fight until the end.
