District 1-4A Division II: Week 2 Report

Snyder 31, Brownwood 21 — The Tigers kept their strong start to the season going, defeating Brownwood for the first time since 2011 and just the third time in the series’ 14-game history.

Quarterback Logan Greene had a big game, hitting 20 of 25 passes for 226 yards and three touchdowns. He connected with Jake Chavez on eight of those throws for 106 yards and a score, while running back J.J. Burns kept things balanced with 86 yards and a touchdown rushing on just 13 carries.

Snyder, which has already matched last season’s win total, will try to stay unbeaten this week when it hosts San Angelo Lake View for a 7 p.m. game Friday at Tiger Stadium.

Big Spring 33, Sweetwater 7 — The young Mustangs struggled again in Week 2, allowing 33 unanswered points after taking a 7-0 lead into the second quarter. Sweetwater was outgained 349-170, passing for just 51 yards, as Big Spring snapped a 26-game losing streak at the Mustang Bowl.

Things don’t get any easier this week for Coach Ben McGehee’s team, which will travel to Wichita Falls to take on Hirschi.

Andrews 36, Monahans 28 — A week after edging Clint by one point, the Loboes gave a good Andrews team all it could handle Friday. But coach Mel Maxfield’s squad couldn’t avoid taking its first loss of the season.

Monahans will face another tough test this week when it travels to Big Spring to take on a vastly improved Steers outfit.

Hereford 47, Midland Greenwood 10 — The Rangers, considered by many to be the favorite in this district, took one on the chin against a Hereford team that’s making the drop from Class 5A to 4A this season.

Greenwood was never really in this one, being outgained 273-92 in the first half and allowing more than 300 yards to running back Seth Dixon.

Fort Stockton 27, Alpine 21 — The Panthers joined Snyder as the only other unbeaten team in this district with a one-touchdown win over a solid Alpine team.

Fort Stockton has looked like a playoff team so far, outscoring its first two opponents 60-21, including a 33-0 shutout of Kermit in Week 1.

Kermit 21, Pecos 0 — It’s been a rough start for Pecos, which followed a one-point loss to Denver City in Week 1 with a blowout loss in Week 2. 

The Eagles won’t find sledding much easier in their final two nondistrict games, taking on Seminole and Big Spring before opening league play Sept. 28 at Fort Stockton.

Sonora 40, Lamesa 17 — After defeating Lake View to open the season, the Golden Tornadoes proved no match for Class 3A power Sonora in Week 2.

Lamesa, like Sweetwater and Pecos, will need to make some major strides by district play if it hopes to reach the playoffs in 2018.
