District 4-3A Division II: Week 4 Report

Anson (1-2) — The Tigers are one of three teams in this district to have won their first game prior to their bye week. Whether that’s an advantage or disadvantage is open for debate.

AHS will open league play next Friday with a difficult road trip to Bangs. 

Ballinger (3-0) — The undefeated Bearcats enjoyed a week off, giving them a little extra time to prepare for the visiting Cisco Loboes in their district opener next week.

This will be one of the biggest games to be played in Ballinger several years.

The winner of that matchup will have a leg up in district play, if the preseason projections are accurate, that is.

District 3-3A Division I: Week 1 Report

Wall 47 , Mason 7 — Mason’s 40-game home winning streak was ended in a resounding way by the Hawks, who dominated from start to finish in a Thursday night game televised by Fox Sports Southwest. 

Wall (1-0) pounded out 353 yards rushing and Mason Fuchs threw two first-half TD passes in what was a largely unexpected rout. 

The Hawks limited Mason to just 111 yards in total offense, including 84 yards rushing on 40 carries.

Young Coleman team showing healthy attitude

On paper, the 2018 Coleman Bluecats have a challenge in front of them, brought on by numbers.

Coleman, which has the second-lowest enrollment in District 4-3A Division II, has only two starters back on both sides of the ball from last year’s 3-8 team. There are only seven seniors on the roster and only 10 lettermen, but the inexperience factor is even larger than what it seems.

Due to the fact that the Bluecats didn’t have the numbers to field a junior varsity team in 2017, very few of their younger players got a large number of reps.

Nonetheless, fifth-year coach John Elder is liking what he sees out of this young group of players and believes they may surprise a few people.
