GC Football: Frost stays hot, runs by Itasca, 49-20

Itasca — The Frost Polar Bears scored in all areas of the game to defeat Itasca 49-20.  The Polar Bears defense scored first as DB Robert Worley scooped up an Itasca fumble and returned it 38-yards for a touchdown early in the first quarter.  The Special Teams squad scored early in the second quarter as Kobe Hailey picked up a bobbled kickoff return, weaved down the left hash,  picked up blocks, veered to his right, and zipped down the right sideline 89-yards for a touchdown.  The Bears offense didn't score until 2:19 left in the second quarter when Zach Terry scrambled 20-yards behind a Woody Woods block.

The Bears only ran four offensive plays in the first quarter, but controlled the clock in the second half.  The Bears put the game away behind a balanced running attack and three touchdown runs - two by Woods and one by Hailey.  

Woods also added a safety with 6:34 in the fourth quarter.  Frost fumbled at the Itasca four yard- line.  On third down and twelve from the Itasca two yard-line, Woods shot through the Wampus Cat line and sacked QB Brandon Farquhar in the end zone.

    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.

    Lindale (6-2) had one big inning to hand Corsicana (5-3) its second loss in a row.
