Winning Ways Continued – Week 3

Despite the threats from Hurricane Ike, this past Friday night, September 12, both Goldthwaite and Copperas Cove scored impressive victories.

Copperas Cove traveled north of Dallas to play McKinney and rolled over them 49-14, bringing their record to 3-0. At lunch on Saturday, Sara told me that she got back to Copperas Cove at 2:00 AM and that it was a long trip! Because of the hurricane and its uncertainties, the game was started one hour early. This coming Friday, Cove has an off week, but will crank it back up on the 26th.

In the annual “Battle of the River”, Class 1A, Goldthwaite rolled over traditional rival, Class 2A, San Saba, 35-0. The offense ‘rolled” and the defense was outstanding.

Pictured are the 3 starting freshmen, Colton – 65, Tyler – 11 and Sergio – 70. They played solid games. Sergio stopped up the middle and besides making a lot of tackles, Colton recovered a fumble and Tyler intercepted a pass!

This coming Tuesday, September 16, I’ll be in San Marcos, watching another Grandson, Austin Bryan, play in his first middle school game. He is a running back, another “hitter” and plays on all the special teams. Mikayla “cheers” again on the 18th and Austin, like Colton and Mikayla, is a gifted athlete and an outstanding student.
