GAME STORY: Brownwood can’t find stride in 35-14 loss to China Spring

BROWNWOOD — The defense couldn’t save the Brownwood Lions this time.

The China Spring Cougars topped the Brownwood Lions 35-14 Friday night at Gordon Wood Stadium as running back Emmanuel Abdallah rushed for 213 yards and four touchdowns. Quarterback Major Bowden added 100 yards rushing, plus 82 yards and a touchdown passing as the undefeated Cougars (3-0) defended their No. 10 ranking in Class 4A Division II by texasfootball.com.

Brownwood (1-2) got 94 yards rushing and two touchdowns from Royshad Henderson. The Lions also put together a 19-play drive that expired 12:18 of the second half and was finished by Henderson’s 1-yard touchdown run. However, the 77-yard drive only pulled Brownwood within 35-14 with 7:13 left in the game.

By Seth LaRue (special to Big Country Preps)

The Dublin Lady Lions rebounded from two consecutive losses in pre-district play with a convincing defeat of the Early Lady Horns on Tuesday at the Early Longhorn Gym. 

The Lady Lions controlled the match from the onset with a first set win, 25-21, and never once lost stride. They proceeded to win the next two sets 25-20 and 25-22, respectively. 

Dublin Coach Kaitlyn Embry had nothing but praise for her varsity team saying, “They did such a good job. They pushed through, they never let up and it’s everything we really have been working hard for in preseason that actually showed up on the court tonight.”

GAME STORY: Armadillos eliminated by Valley View, 14-12

MINERAL WELLS – The Valley View Eagles won a state quarterfinals football game Friday night in which they managed only six first downs and 182 total yards.

Valley View took advantage of its opportunities and upset the third-ranked San Saba Armadillos 14-12 in the Class 2A Division I state quarterfinals at Rams Stadium. The Eagles turned a fumble recovery by Christian McMurray and a 70-yard kickoff return by Clint Epperson into two short touchdown possessions, and Valley View’s determined defense made the 14 points stand up for the win.

Valley View (12-2) won for the 11th straight time and advanced to the state semifinals for the first time since 1992. The Eagles will play Post, which beat Hawley on Friday, in next week’s Class 2A DI state semifinals.

GAME STORY: San Saba routs Rivercrest, advances to regional final

MANSFIELD – Maybe it’s not so bad to have a slow start — as long as you play as well as the San Saba Armadillos did in the second quarter Friday night.

San Saba scored 30 second-quarter points despite the wet weather conditions at Vernon Newsom Stadium and rallied for a dominating 57-14 win over the Bogata Rivercrest Rebels in a Class 2A Division I regional-round playoff game.

The No. 3-ranked Armadillos (13-0) advanced to play Valley View in next week’s state quarterfinals. San Saba beat Valley View in last year’s football playoffs, when the Armadillos advanced to the state semifinals.
