The run game was a big part of the Lobos’ start, as well as their continued success. It started with Chris Herron’s 40-yard scamper on the opening drive, which set up his first of two touchdown passes before the second quarter. The first connection found Devin Lawrence on a 4th-and-10 pass, and the other was a 51-yard bomb to Golden Eke.

The Lobos continued to run, and finished the first half with 182 rushing yards on 16 carries. That included two scores by Corien Azema, and one by Herron and Chris Mehn.

Another good sign for the Lobos, going into next week’s rematch with 17-6A foe Cy-Fair, is the way their defense played in the first half. The unit shutout Kingwood, had two blocked punts courtesy of Tucker, and allowed 80 yards.

Even though the game was out of hand heading to the second half, Kingwood kept fighting, like it had in the months since Hurricane Harvey. The displaced Mustangs, who’ve been attending Summer Creek since the storm, also overcame an 0-3 start to play December football for the first time in 27 years.

Their ability to not give up resulted in a second half they can hang their hats on. They gave up an early 60-yard scamper to Tucker, but scored on back-to-back drives in the third quarter. It started with Matt Slayton’s 40-yard scoring connection to Nolan Powell, and continued with Connal Fisher’s 27-yard field goal. Slayton wrapped up the afternoon with a 14-yard touchdown pass to Trey Gould in the fourth.

“The second half was another opportunity to show who we are at Kingwood,” said Mustang head coach Barry Campbell. “That’s tough, determined, hard-working kids that are going to play hard no matter what, do the best they can, and have something to be proud of when everything’s said and done.”

SUGAR LAND – The Elkins Knights exploded for 28 unanswered points in the second half Saturday afternoon at Mercer Stadium, prevailing 35-21 to earn the last available playoff spot in District 20-6A. Quarterback Cameron George threw for two touchdowns and ran for two others, with the last one covering 58 yards and slamming the door with 42 seconds remaining.

Elkins’ dominant second half performance was stunning because the Bulldogs had their way in the first two quarters. After Knights’ kicker Ethan Henry missed a 28-yard field goal wide left with 3:40 left in the first, Austin QB Trey Larsen lofted a 46-yard rainbow TD bomb to Troy Omeire. The ‘Dawgs led 7-0 with 1:44 remaining.

The ‘Dawgs domination and the Knights’ frustration continued. George lifted an even longer and more beautiful pass to Kolby White for an apparent 70-yard score, but offensive holding nullified it. After the Knights punted it away and the second quarter began, Austin’s Moise Tezzo scored the first of his two TDs with 7:31 left in the half and the Bulldogs were on top 14-0.

The only memorable moment the Knights’ offense had in the first half was George’s 20-yard strike to Mike Granson that narrowed the gap to 14-7. On their next possession, with an opportunity to drive for a tying touchdown, George threw late over the middle where Omeire intercepted and returned the ball to the ‘Dawgs’ 29.

With less than two minutes left before intermission, Tezzo broke at least three tackles and outran the Knights’ secondary for a 72-yard TD, his ninth and longest of the season. When the first half dust settled, Austin was on top 21-7.

Omeire’s second interception of the game stopped the Knights’ first drive of the third quarter, but the Elkins defense forced a three-and-out.
