This week the middle school football teams played the San Angelo Lincoln Braves. On Monday the 7th grade team made their way to San Angelo to face the Braves. After an up and down game, the 7th grade B team came up short losing 14-12. A few dropped passes and an onside kick were too much to overcome. For the A team, it was a different story. The A team scored 20 against the Braves and only allowed 6. It was a great team effort for both teams.
On Tuesday night, the 8th grade B & A teams beat the Braves at Gordon Wood. The B team fought from behind and came back to win 14-12. The B team showed how to never give up and fight for what they wanted. It was an exciting game and the team showed heart. The A team finally started to show what its like when the team works together as a team. The defense only allowed 4 first downs and 6 points the entire game. The offense scored 40 points throughout the course of 4 quarters. The A team was able to both throw the ball and run the ball against the Braves.
