GAME STORY: Wall overcomes fumbling problem to hold off Mason

WALL — The numbers looked more like a team playing its first game of the year than a squad halfway through the regular season, but in the end it didn’t matter as Wall knocked off Mason 14-6 in nondistrict action Friday Night at Clayton Weishuhn Field.

The Hawks had 10 fumbles, losing four, while also throwing an interception, but it was Briggs Jones who came up with the play of the night to help Wall improve to 4-1.

After a Mason timeout with the Hawks kneeling to close out the game, Wall had its ninth fumble of the night with under 30 seconds left to give the Punchers possession at the WHS 26-yard line.

Jones then picked up his second interception in as many drives to seal the win.

GAME STORY: Wall volleyball plays fast, sweeps San Angelo TLCA

WALL — Playing with just two girls on its bench, the Wall volleyball team knew that it would have its hands full against a San Angelo TLCA squad that rolls with a roster of 14 players.

The 16th-ranked Lady Hawks struggled with a faster pace that TLCA brought in the first set before regrouping and rolling to a quick 25-21, 25-12, 25-12 win in 50 minutes Tuesday in a District 6-3A match at Hawk Gym.

Wall’s ability to adjust on the fly and adapt to the pace that the Lady Eagles were pushing was something coach Robynn Jones was pleased to see.

BIG COUNTRY PREPS GAME OF THE WEEK: Brownwood entertains red hot Glen Rose (w/ Evan Ren’s Big Country picks)

LAST WEEK: 51-10, .836
SEASON TOTAL: 131-42, .757

Football picks are something I take pride in and it irritates me to no end when I stink it up. So let’s just say, I burned some midnight oil to get that situation corrected last week. 

As a result, the column recovered with a solid .836 percentage in Week 3, salvaging my bruised ego after a disastrous Week 2 tally. In all, 51 of 61 area picks hit the mark last week, elevating my season’s record above 75 percent. 

That’s more like it.

Week 4 in the meantime, presents a lineup of some of the most difficult area picks we’ve had this season — including an explosive Glen Rose team facing Brownwood in our BCP Game of the Week. Let’s dive in, shall we? 

Here’s this week’s forecast:
