Polar Bears ground Dallas Gateway, 42-12



The Frost Polar Bears (2-1) used a clock-consuming running game and made several key defensive stops to ground the aerial attack of Dallas Gateway Academy (0-3) 42-12. Robert Worley and Woody Woods each ran over 100 yards as the Bears pounded out 343 yards on the ground. Kobe Hailey caught two touchdown receptions and the Bears defense scored a safety and recorded five take-aways.

Frost took the lead with 8:30 in the first quarter with Hailey catching a 45-yard pass from Zach Terry. On Gateway’s first offensive series that followed, QB Michael Jemerson was sacked. On the second play, Worley picked off a Jemerson pass at the Gators 47-yard line and returned it 15-yards. Five plays later, Woods ran behind C Chris Belcher to put the Bears up 13-0.

The Frost offense controlled 9:06 of clock on two series in third quarter without scoring. As the Gateway crowd cheered loudly to provide momentum to their team, Belcher, from DT, ripped through the line to tackle Ja Quavian Bluitt for loss sending the Gators to their own 12-yard line. The next snap darted over QB Jermerson’s head. He recovered in the end zone as Bears LB Laton Eastman tackled him for a safety. From there, the Bears shut down any Gator threat and scored twice more.

  • 4-16-14NVSBMoerbe slides.jpg Navarro Softball: Bulldogs get ranked, split with Paris

    Minutes after Navarro split a doubleheader with Paris on Wednesday, Navarro softball Coach Jessica Karenke was told her Bulldogs had just been nationally ranked and are now No. 16 in the NJCAA national softball poll.
    She had no idea.
    And she didn't care.
    Karenke is worried about what happens on the diamond, and she had some concerns after Navarro made four errors in the second game that opened the door for Paris to pull off a 7-2 win after the Bulldogs and Ciara Luna controlled the first game with a 4-1 win.

    Lindale has been poison to Corsicana all year.
    The Eagles won a bizarre game in Lindale to keep the Tigers out of the football playoffs and ruined the boys basketball season with two gut-wrenching wins in the final week of the season.
    They did it again Tuesday, beating the Tigers 4-0 at Price Field to take over second place in the District 16-4A race.
    Lindale (6-2) had one big inning to hand Corsicana (5-3) its second loss in a row.

  • I4-15-14Kellysigns.jpg GC Volleyball: Kerens' Kelly signs with Paris Junior College

    She prayed about it. She lost sleep about it. And she prayed about it some more.
    That's just a glimpse of what Marqueshia Kelly went through before deciding to turn down a half dozen basketball scholarships and accept a scholarship to play volleyball at Paris Junior College.
    The journey might have been a little sleepless, but in the end it wasn't that tough for Kelly, who is a multi-sport star at Kerens.
    “I followed my heart,'' she said on Tuesday just moments after signing a letter-of-intent to play volleyball at Paris in front of family, coaches and friends.
