FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS

What happens when good luck meets bad luck?  It applifies each.  Friday night Temple was saddled with the bad, while Harker Heights enjoyed the good.  After multiple turnovers and injuries for Temple, and a couple of long scores for Harker Heights, the night ended with the Knights on top 42-7.

 

The new Hood Stadium was as chilly as the weather to Belton Friday night.  Killeen running back Daniel McCants ran for 255 yards and 3 touchdowns, the final TD a 74 yarder with 4:40 remaining, as the Kangeroo’s beat the Tigers 45-32.

 

Other game winners Friday night include Waco Midway over Killeen Shoemaker 40-20…Copperas Cove took down Killeen Ellison 34-9…Salado over academy 28-7…Gatesville defeated Llano 41-7…Rogers ran away and hid from Jarrell 68-6…While Moody and Rosebud-Lott both came up short.

 

 

COLLEGE GRID IRON

UMHBs’ day could be summed up this way…We’ll spot you a player and still score on you.  They did.  With only 10 men on defense Tim Bower blocked a field goal attempt and Jordan Mullinnix returned it for a touchdown on the way to a Crusader route of Howard Payne, 68 to 6.  UMHB will take on East Texas Baptist in Marshall at 1pm next Saturday, and you can hear all the action on sister station 1400 KTEM.

 

Hyped as a college battle between Belton and Killeen because of the starting QB’s, you’d have a tough time picking a winner.  David Ash was benched in the 4th quarter in favor of Case McCoy, and former Roo Michael Cummings was only 3 for 9 for 39 yards.  Kansas ran for 2 scores and did have the lead until late in the game, but it was Texas coming out on top 21-17.  Kansas comes to Baylor this weekend while UT goes to Lubbock to take on Tech.

 

Texas Tech did give it run in the first half of their game against Kansas State, but the Wildcats were too much for them in the Second half and ran away with the game.  The final gun sounded on the Red Raiders with the score 55 to 24.

 

The Sooners loose to the Irish 30-13…A&M burns Auburn 63-21…and Baylor lost to Iowa State 35-21
