No surprises in the fifth week of highschool football, as every team with a winning record took home a victory this weekend, and vice versa.
Starting off in the Trans-Pecos area, there are still four teams who are still without a win in the first five games. The Marfa Shorthorns only managed to score one touchdown against the Buena Vista Longhorns, resulting in a final score of 52-6. The Fort Davis Indians managed a little more offense, but ultimately didn’t have the defense to hold their own against the Balmorhea Bears in their 70-24 loss on Friday. Van Horn suffered a similar fate, losing 41-24 against the McCamey Badgers. Fort Stockton came close to snagging their first win, but couldn’t quite stick it out against the Levelland Lobos with the game ending 28-20.
Luckily there were some Trans-Pecos wins over the weekend. The Alpine Fightin’ Bucks won their third straight, climbing out of their hole and earning a winning record of 3-2. The final score in their game against the Muleshoe Mules was 67-34. The Sierra Blanca Vaqueros also won against the Jesus Chapel Chargers, with a final score of 71-22.
The Permian-Basin 6-man teams had significantly more fortune this weekend. The Crane Cranes won their fifth straight, dominating the Forsan Buffaloes 43-2. The Monahans Loboes took home a victory as well, beating the Kermit Yellowjackets 21-6. Finally, the Grandfalls-Royalty Cowboys shut down the Loop Longhorns, leaving the Longhorns scoreless in a 50-0 victory.
In Permian Basin 11-Man football, the Midland-Lee Rebels won 37-6 in their game against the Coronado Mustangs. The Permian Panthers lost their third straight, this time against the Midland high Bulldogs with a final score of 31-21.
Finally in College Football, the Sul Ross Lobos continued their win-less season with a loss against the University of Mary-Hardin Baylor Crusaders, ending with a score of 18-40.
Tune in Friday at noon during Old School and Oldies for a preview of upcoming weekend sports.
