Games of the week

Greetings high school football fans! The FBISD district race has become very exciting and is shaking up for great playoff games this weekend. I'd like to extend an apology to the Elkins Knights team and the Coffman family. I turned 35 yesterday and I'm starting to show signs of old age. Coffman's name is Nick and not Jake. Once again, my apologies to a classy family and football organization. Moving forward, we had two great games worth talking about last weekend. First, Travis vs Bush, then John Foster Dulles vs William P. Clements.

This one had big playoff implications. Bush got on the scoreboard first Friday night when Brandon Gordon broke loose for a nice 14 yard td run with 10:25 left in the 2nd quarter. The point after was good and Bush was ahead 7-0. Travis wasted very little time and got to the 14 yard line of Bush when James Bernard put a 21 yard field goal through the uprights to cut the Bush lead to 4 points with 4:26 left in the 2nd quarter. The half would end with Bush ahead 7-3. Travis would go to the locker room and had different plans for the 2nd half.

Both defenses were bone crushing in the 3rd quarter as neither team was able to put any points on the board. However, Travis would wear down the Broncos and eventually start piling on the scoring attack. With 7:26 left in the 4th quarter Friday night, Kyle " Balboa " Coulter threw a nice pass to Ryan Crews for a 10 yard touchdown. Bernard's kick was good and Travis was in the lead for the first time 10-7. Travis got the ball back quickly and RJ Noriega scampered in for a 16 yard touchdown run with 5:23 left in the 4th quarter. Travis would go for the dagger and get it when Kelton Rhine caught and converted the two point conversion from Connor Smith.

Noriega would again turn on the afterburners and show he has "the eye of the Tiger" as he closed the Bush hopes with a 50 yard run for a touchdown. RJ is the real deal folks. The kid can flat out move.

Dulles faced Clements in one of the oldest rivalries in FBISD history. Neither team dissapointed the capacity crowd on hand. Only one could win however.

Dulles QB and captain Zach Lathrop threw for 120 yards completing 48% of his passes. The story on the Dulles side however was their offensive line and running backs. Jarrel Oliver ran for a massive 140 yards with two touchdowns. He averaged 7 yards a carry. Dulles piled up 353 total yards of offense.

Clements QB Austin Decell, who was accepted to Texas ATM last week, had a nice game. The senior leader tossed for 120 yards and 1 touchdown to William Dille, brother of current TCU star Walker Dille. Clements tacked on 428 total yards of offense. Scott Garcia had a couple nice scampers for big yardage and played great on the defensive side as well.

The game was close the whole way and in the end it would be the perennial playoff team that prevailed. Dulles won the game 38-31. Great game by both teams. Definitely one that will be remembered for a long time.
