Frost bounces back, takes care of Alba-Golden, 20-6

Frost —

Frost — On the first offensive possession of the game, Frost RB Robert Worley, with LT Raymundo Hernandez, LG Alexis Lopez, and C Chris Belcher leading the way, broke through Alba-Golden’s line and dashed down the sideline for a 58-yard touchdown. Polar Bears LB Colton Clayton recovered a Panthers fumble on the ensuing series, but the Bears could not capitalize.

By the second quarter, Alba-Golden began a comeback. Panther LB Machan Meade wrapped-up Polar Bear RB Kobe Hailey on fourth and 3 at the Frost 25-yard line for no gain. The Panthers scored five plays later to tie the game. Then the Bears fumbled at mid-field. That’s when the Polar Bears defense made a stand that carried them the rest of the game. On fouth and 11 at the Frost 43-yard line, the Panthers ran a fake punt to the right seem with Cody Melton picking up a 35-yards. The gain was nullified due to a holding penalty. Facing fourth down again, the Panthers ran another fake punt. Frost LB Laton Eastman nailed RB Eddie Salinas along the left-line for no gain. After the change of possession, Frost scored to take a 12-6 lead into halftime.

The Polar Bear defense stopped Alba-Golden on five fourth down conversion attempts, recovered two fumbles and recorded two sacks. With 9:52 left in the fourth quarter, Worley again maneuvered behind the left-side lineman and found open territory. With DB Cannon Dean tearing his jersey, Worley plunged into the end zone to push the Bears into a commanding lead.

  • GC Basketball/Baseball: Mildred's Connor Hill sees life clearly

    There was never any doubt for Connor Hill, never any question about what he would do or how he would do it.
    Sure, there was that meeting with his mother and father and talks with the doctor when he was 10, talks and meetings that came accompanied with worry and concern.
    But never from Connor.
    He just never dwelled on the fact he played sports with one eye. He didn't worry or talk about it when he was 10 and he never talked about it at Mildred High, where Hill emerged as a star on the basketball court and baseball diamond.

    Am I just that old, or have amateur athletics gone absolutely nuts these days? On second thought, don’t answer that unless it’s yes to the nuts part.
    High School and college basketball are on the verge of being totally ruined by AAU basketball. Top roundball prospects are identified by the junior high level if not earlier.
