Football player of the week

September 4, 2012

Marquees Jenkins has been named as Sweet-water High School’s Football Player of the Week.
Jenkins, a 165-pound junior running back and linebacker, ran for a team-high 101 yards in season-opening 23-13 win on Friday over Eastland on just nine carries. He also had four solo tackles, five assisted tackles and one pass hurry on defense.

Blackwell rolls past Westbrook, gets first on-field win since ‘10

September 4, 2012

BLACKWELL — After failing to get a win on the field for nearly two years, Blackwell finally celebrated a victory — and a lopsided one at that — here Friday as the Hornets dominated Westbrook, 54-6, in their season opener.
Blackwell didn’t waste a lot of time taking care of the Wildcats, either, as the game was ended at halftime by Six-Man’s 45-point mer-cy rule.

Wylie jumps into 3A poll at No. 7; Stephenville 8th

September 4, 2012

Abilene Wylie replaced Argyle as the No. 7-ranked team in Class 3A in this week’s Associated Press high school football poll following a 31-14 win over the Eagles on Friday.
Wylie — unranked in the AP preseason poll — jumped ahead of preseason No. 1 Stephenville, which lost to Monterrey (Mex.) Tech 27-17 in its opener and fell seven places down to No. 8. Argyle dropped out of this week’s top 10 in 3A.
Monahans, after receiv-ing enough votes to earn a No. 14 ranking in the Class 3A preseason poll, received none this time after losing to Midland Christian 42-28 in its season opener.

I-County tops Roby

September 3, 2012

Irion County didn’t com-plete a pass, had 85 yards in penalties, committed four turnovers and its first two possessions ended with fumbles on Roby’s side of the field Saturday at the Sammy Baugh Classic.
But Roby failed to take full advantage and committed several mistakes as well that proved costly. In the end, the Hornets were able to break a 14-14 halftime tie and pull out a 30-20 win over the Lions in the season opener for both teams.

Everman routs Del Valle

September 3, 2012

Saturday’s final game of the Sammy Baugh Classic had one of the most intriguing matchups in the event’s history: a battle between a pair of perennial Class 4A playoff teams located more than 600 miles apart.
And in the first quarter alone, it had a 65-yard kickoff return to open the game plus a Classic-record 82-yard punt and a safety.
But the game ultimately proved to be onesided, as Everman easily defeated El Paso Del Valle 48-10.

Mustangs stop Mavs as Mobley wins debut

September 2, 2012

In one sense, the feeling that Sweetwater head football coach Shane Mobley had after Friday’s season-opening 23-13 win over Eastland at the Sammy Baugh Classic in Mustang Bowl was probably not a lot different from what he had felt on 40 other occasions while serving as an assistant on four playoff teams here from 2004-08 that had a combined 40-13 record.
But there were some major differences this time.

Highland falls to MC

September 2, 2012

JAYTON — A very young Highland team was unable to stay with Motley County in its season opener Friday, as the highly-regarded Matadors jumped out to a 26-6 lead after one period en route to 60-12 win.
After giving up the game’s first two touchdowns, High-land got within 12-6 when Michael Hyde scored on a 1-yard run. But the Hornets couldn’t get any closer than that as Motley County — coming off a state runnerup finish in Six-Man Division II and ranked No. 2 in this year’s preseason poll — answered with three more touchdowns before Highland could score again.

Bearcats run to 38-6 victory over Plowboys

August 31, 2012

A 38-6 season-opening loss to De Leon on Thursday at the Sammy Baugh Classic wasn’t what Roscoe was hoping for. But head coach Jonathan Haseloff still saw encouraging signs for his team, which is coming off an 0-10 season.
“I’m pleased with the way our kids performed for three quarters,” he said of his Plowboys, who trailed just 18-6 at halftime. “But when we came out in the second half we just made some awful boo-boos, being young, and we’ve got to stop doing that. But I thought we did some things well and a lot of our young kids really stepped up.”

Local 6-man teams start today

August 31, 2012

Nolan County’s two six-man Hornet football teams begin the regular season today with hopes of showing much better results than a year ago when they combined for just four victories, with one of them coming as the result of a forfeit.
Highland is facing a tough opener against Motley County at Jayton’s Gridiron Classic starting at 6 p.m. as it begins trying to improve on last year’s season that ended at 3-7. The Classic is a three-day tournament that will feature a total of seven games. Motley County was the state runnerup in Divi-sion II this past season.
