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.

By Bobby Batson
 
The Hearne Eagles will have their last chance to break into the win column against Buffalo on Wood Field this Friday night at 7:30 p.m. After a slow start in non-district, the Bison have bounced back to surprise some teams in district play and can make the playoffs with a win this week.

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.

Eagles hope to end losing streak

By Bobb y Batson

When the final whistle blows in New Waverly this Friday night, one of the two teams will be proud to have their losing streak ended. The Eagles will be facing their best chance of the season to break out of their slump, but it will take a 100% effort on both sides of the ball. While the Bulldogs have been giving up over 40 points a game, they have averaged two touchdowns and have not been shut out this season. Like the Eagles, they have been suffering from injuries to key players and costly turnovers.

Finally, a true test, maybe

by Michael Cotton
 
In some corners it might be called David versus Goliath but I’m not sure Calvert would qualify as David in this scenario. You see David was a big underdog going into his battle with Goliath. Calvert on the other hand isn’t quite the underdog that David was in his battle. Matter of fact they may not be underdogs at all. Despite Crowell being back-to-back State Champions of Division I, the Trojans played them competitively a year ago.

Eagles drop one to Lions in 77-0 loss

By Bobby Batson
 
The Hearne Eagles tangled with a bunch of hungry Lions last Friday night in Franklin and came out on the short end of a 77-0 score. Franklin jumped on the Eagles quickly for 35 points in the first quarter and didn’t let up until the second half. When the final whistle blew, there was no doubt that the Lions deserve their #3 state ranking among state 3A schools. The Eagles could not get their offense working in the first half and turned the ball over six times, four times by interceptions and twice on fumbles
