Plain and simple, it’s payback time

Not many people want to talk about it but for the Calvert Trojans this one will be about payback, as well as the opportunity to move on to the Regional Finals.  Milford defeated the Trojans on their home field to win the District Championship three weeks ago.  Now they will meet again in the quarterfinals for the right to advance in the Playoffs.  
Calvert has beaten two favored District Champions to get to this point, Jonesboro 46-38 and Richland Springs 43-28 and has looked very impressive by coming back both times to win in the 2nd half. Milford meanwhile routed Blanket 78-42, winning the game rather handily. The last time these two teams met, it was an instant classic with Milford jumping out 48-12 in the 1st half, but Calvert roared back outscoring the Bulldogs 41-6 in the 2nd half only to lose, 54-53 when the extra point try was blocked.

Rematch for Bremond or revenge for Lovelady

Whether this game classifies as a rematch between Bremond Tigers and the Lovelady Lions or a chance for revenge, all depends on which team’s point of view you look at it from. Either way expect the Big Red to be ready.

Calvert Football; For all the marbles

It all comes down to this game and now there’s no next week.  The District Title in District 16-Division II Six-Man, all comes down to a winner take all match up this Friday night in Calvert.  The contest between the Milford Bulldogs and Calvert Trojans figures to be a dynamite game.  Both teams are 2-0 in district play and both are fresh off mercy rule wins. Milford against Karnack 51-6 and Calvert over Trinidad 62-6.  Milford owned this matchup last season in Milford beating Calvert soundly in Milford after a close first half.  

This 2013 version of the Trojans looks to be more capable of taking on the challenge that they could not last season as youngsters. Milford was sluggish early on in the year, getting forty-fived by Abbott and losing to Genova in their opener. They have rebounded since winning their last 7 games, mercy ruling each opponent. Their offense has been prolific, scoring a district high 482 points.

Showdown after sunset

You asked for it and now you’ve got it. Which pride of Lions will have the best bite?  After 4 district games, nothing has been settled in District 11-2A Division I.  Franklin comes in at 9-0, unbeaten and only occasionally challenged.  Teague is 7-2, with early losses to Mart and Marlin, but since the loss to Marlin, they have reeled off 6 consecutive wins and have scored no less than 41 points in any of them.  

The Franklin Lions have roared all year long, devouring each opponent and leaving only scraps in their wake.  Both teams rolled district foes this past weekend leading up to the showdown.  Franklin mauled Trinity 43-14 and Teague trampled Crockett 41-20. This time, this game, is what each team has played for all year, a chance to be the District Champion. Teague’s offense has become more polished as the year has gone along.

Eagles need a win for the play-offs

The Eagles took one baby step last Friday when they took care of the Moody Bearcats but that was just a small piece of a much larger picture for Hearne. They still need help from several sources to squeeze into a playoff spot. But first the Eagles have to take care of their own business by winning.

If they lose it won’t matter what else happens, they’ll be at home for the playoffs. So for the Eagles to delay the start of basketball practice, they need to win each week and pray.  

Bruceville-Eddy comes in at 1-7 on the year and would surely like to ruin any hopes Hearne has for a playoff spot.  Quarterback Tromaine Miles has improved a sluggish offense.  

The Eagles new found passing attack has relieved a lot of the pressure from the shoulders of running back Marcjavion McGrew, who is closing in on a 1000-yard season.

DISTRICT CHAMPIONS - Volleyballs Sole Survivor

We have come to the end of the 2013 volleyball season for all but two teams in Robertson County. The Franklin Lady Lions are District Champion after a 3-1 match win on the road at Anderson-Shiro. Franklin began slowly in the match losing game 1, and struggling to win 26-24 in game 2.  

They regrouped to win game 3 easily and fought off a determined effort by the young ladies from Anderson-Shiro to win by two 26-24.  

Kadie McCullough, fresh from being Homecoming Queen, along with Carrie Casey and Regan Blajeski got down and dirty, having 67 digs between them. McCullough, showed she was more than just a pretty face with 32 of those digs.

Krista Stickney (10), Ambrey Deleon (6), and Carrie Casey (12) led the Lady Lions in kills.  Maddie Nelson and Krista Mitchell had 16 assists each for the Lady Lions.  It was a total team effort by Franklin.

Tigers pounce at start of district play

The Bremond Tigers enjoyed their one-week rest and now it’s back to the business at hand. The Tigers kick off District play against the Lovelady Lions. The Lions are 3-3 after beating Hull-Daisetta last Friday.  

They do have one common opponent with Bremond and that was Leon.  The Lions lost 14-6 to Leon while the Tigers humbled Leon 35-14.  It’s the first of three district games for Bremond and the Tigers look to continue their hot start.
A continuation of the Cade Grych that has emerged in recent weeks, will definitely give the Tigers an advantage.  

Grych has totaled nearly 600 yards passing in the last two games and thrown 5 touchdowns and run for 2 more. You can see his confidence growing and his receivers Evan Sargent, Harrison Hull and RayAndre Browning have proven solid. Grych’s play has led Bremond to its impressive 6-0 start and an average of 41 points per game.

Lions on the prowl for the Division I title

The Lions will look to move a step closer to winning the District 11-2A Division I title.  After knocking off Elkhart last weekend, the Lions look to improve to a 2-0 record in district play. Next up on the menu are the Crockett Bulldogs.  The Bulldogs were expected to compete for playoff honors, but have fallen on some hard times this season.

After losing badly in their district opener against Elkhart, they would drop another close game to the Trinity Tigers to fall to 0-2 in District. Crockett has the potential to be explosive on offense but have been inconsistent all season.  They scored early and easily in their early wins against Lexington and Rusk but have struggled mightily since, scoring 17 points only once.

Big red on the rise

The Bremond Tigers ran over the Iola Bulldogs last season and look to do so again. The 34-6 final score doesn’t truly tell the entire story.  Bremond dominated from start to finish and the “Big Red” is even better this time around.  Meanwhile, Iola has been better than expected, early on in 2013.  They stand 4-1 overall, with only a loss to Milano on their resume. The Bulldogs have showed an ability to move the football this season averaging over 300 yards and 28 points a game.  That will definitely help their cause, as they try to upset the 5th ranked Tigers from Bremond.
