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.

  • RON MORGAN.jpg Morgan; Remembering House and a better era

    The Cowboys started training camp the same week that Robert Newhouse died.
    In a way, that’s very unfortunate for Jerry. Thinking back to the “Human Bowling Ball” and the teams of that era might lead to the inevitable comparisons to today’s product on the field.

  • weights.jpg GC Football: Blooming Grove's Williams expects to win

    His father was a head coach for years at Pecos High and his brother-in-law is the head football coach at DeSoto, but Lawrence Williams Jr., a man who loves coaching football, never had any ideas about being the head man.
    “I love coaching,'' said Williams as he sat at his desk in Blooming Grove, where he became the Lions' head coach this summer. “I just never thought about being the head coach and I never applied to be a head coach. With this job I can still coach.''

    Kaylana Dickson got the name Bebop on her way to winning a national title in gymnastics this summer, and boy did it catch fire.
    Kaylana, a Corsicana native, picked up fans from all over the country and many bought Bebop T-shirts to help pay her expenses to Spokane, Wa., where she won the 8-and-under title in the double-mini trampoline event and finished third in floor exercise.
    More than 100 of her friends, family members and fans showed up at the Corsicana YMCA on Saturday to celebrate the national title and be on hand for a drawing for an autographed New Orleans Saints football jersey from David Hawthorne, a star defensive lineman for the Saints and Kaylana's uncle

    Call it the rarest of rares, at least as far as all-state teams go. Brett Anderson of Kerens shows up on the Texas Sports Writers Association/Collin Street Bakery all-state team not one, not two, not three, but four times. Dawson's Lane Dotson was a second-team outfielder, and the Bulldogs' Trent Underwood made the third-team as a pitcher, and also garnered an honorable mention nod at first base. Kerens outfielder Brent Warren was also an honorable mention pick.

  • RON MORGAN.jpg Morgan: All-star games and all-star shame

    If there is anything more useless than a political promise, it’s an all-star game. I don’t care what sport at what level. Any all-star game is simply an exhibition, a reward for being among the best (maybe). Any one of them is about as relevant as the IRS’s “dog ate my homework” excuse for losing emails.
