Week One 24-4A Game Predictions and Outlook

Lamar Consolidated began defense of their District title by taking care of Waller last week 31-14. Jacquizz Rodgers continued his stellar high school career with 3 more touchdowns. Bay City and Seven Lakes came up short in their contests, but both ball clubs looked much improved, which means a tough road ahead when District play begins.

Week One Outlook:
Lamar Consolidated began defense of their District title by taking care of Waller last week 31-14.  Jacquizz Rodgers continued his stellar high school career with 3 more touchdowns.  Bay City and Seven Lakes came up short in their contests, but both ball clubs looked much improved, which means a tough road ahead when District play begins.  El Campo only got a half of football in before bad weather cancelled their game against Yates, while Terry and Foster begin their 2007 season's this week.


Bay City @ Waller

Katy Seven Lakes @ Sugar Land Dulles

Angleton @ El Campo

Elkins @ Lamar Consolidated

Terry @ Friendswood

Montgomery @ Foster

Bay City Blackcats at Waller Bulldogs: The Bay City Blackcats went toe-to-toe with Class 6A defending TAPPS state champs St. Pius last week, coming up short 33-27.  The Blackcats will try for their first win of the year by traveling to Waller to face the Bulldogs.  Waller will be hyped up for their first home game of the season, and are still licking their wounds after a 31-14 loss to Lamar Consolidated last week. Hoffy's Pick:  Blackcats by 7


Katy Seven Lakes Spartans at Sugar Land Dulles Vikings: The Spartans gave Clements a heck of a scare last week, coming up one point short in a big upset, 21-20.  Don't expect Dulles to be surprised by the Spartan's improved play from last season.  Seven Lakes will be better this season as their first game showed and should get their first varsity victory sometime early in the season. Hoffy's Pick:  Vikings by 7

Angleton Wildcats at El Campo Ricebirds: This is an old District match up between the Wildcats and Ricebirds.  Both teams know each other well, and past battles have gone down to the wire.  Angleton looked sluggish last week in their opener against Westbury and will look to open things up against a stingy Ricebird defense, while El Campo is looking to play four quarters after last week's game against Yates was called in the second quarter due to weather. Hoffy's Pick:  Ricebirds by 10

 

Elkins Knights at Lamar Cons. Mustangs: The Mustangs looked good coming out of the gate, as Jacquizz Rodgers and D.J. Smallwood led the way in a convincing win over Waller.  Elkins routed Alvin 47-0 last week, but the Knights know the test will be much tougher against the Mustangs.  Hoffy's Pick:  Mustangs by 21

 

Terry Rangers at Friendswood Mustangs:  Terry kicks off their 2007 campaign in what could be a first round playoff preview.  Friendswood looked good in their win over Jones last week, mixing up the run and the pass very efficiently.  Expect the Mustangs to try and do more of the same this week against a tougher, quicker Ranger defense.  The Rangers must come out and minimize mistakes to win this one.  Hoffy's Pick:  Mustangs by 3

 

Montgomery Bears at Foster Falcons:  The Falcons also start their season in Week 1 by hosting the Bears from 18-4A.  Montgomery came up short against Galena Park 14-7 last week, and will look to improve against a Foster team with lots of questions marks coming in.  Foster will find out quickly how the players respond against a stingy Bear defense.  Hoffy's Pick:  Bears by 10
