A battle of unbeatens; somethings gonna give

By Michel Cotton

They have met at this fork in the road on several occasions and the games have been drama filled to say the least. The Trojans own the victory in the last battle between the two teams, a frantic 22-20 win, coming from behind to take the lead and win in a dramatic finish.

A quality opponent; maybe

By Michael Cotton

It has been a month since the Calvert Trojans played a game against a team they weren’t expected to mercy rule. Since Crowell, the Trojans have met the likes of Buckholts 62-0, High Island 83-38, and Prairie Lea 84-0. Not much if you asked me in the form of real competition for the team.

By Bobby Batson

Despite being on the short side of the 56-22 score, the Hearne Eagles showed dramatic  improvement in their season finale against Buffalo on Wood Field this past Friday night. Unfortunately, it was ‘too littletoo late’ for this season, as the Eagles finished their second winless season in a row.

Showing mercy; in the rain

By Michael Cotton
 
It’s week eleven of the High School Football season and the Calvert Trojans are preparing for their final curtain call before the playoffs begin. They have already wrapped up the district Championship and are looking to finish the regular season unbeaten.  This week’s tune up game will be against the Prairie Lea Indians at home on “Seniors Night”. The Indians have had a rough season in 2015 especially in the district, with losses to Buckholts and High Island. They have been mercy ruled in both games and in all but one of their other losses this season.

Muddy feathers flew

By Bobby Batson

Misty rain and a soggy field set the stage for a dreary game night for the Hearne Eagles as they were clubbed 70-6 by Lexington last Friday on Wood Field. The local team fell into a pattern they seem unable to get out of this season - getting behind early, turning the ball over, and being dominated by running back that seems impossible to stop.

Lady Stangs will end with Badgers

By Michael Cotton
 
For Coach Alicia Ellis and the Mumford Lady Mustangs it has been a topsy-turvy season. Her young ladies have been learning under fire, which is not always a good way to learn the game. Many times this season they have been overmatched by some of the solid 2A teams in their district. Milano, Thrall, Thorndale, are all strong volleyball teams. Even Holland presents a challenge for the Lady Mustangs. They have been given hope by the new UIL format that will allow some of the 1A teams a shot at the playoffs.

Lady Eagles searching for first district win

By Bobb y Batson

Hearne’s Lady Eagles continue to struggle in district and are still trying for their first district win. This past week, they dropped matches to Cameron and Rogers and have fallen to 2-18 for the season. At Cameron last Tuesday, the ladies “struggled with minor aspects of the game,” according to their coach Amanda Puryear. They were edged 25-10, 25-11, and 25-8 in the match as Amaya Gonzales led the team with only one ace in serving. They were blanked at the net.
