Blackcat senior running back RJ Mitchell (22) leaps over a pileup en route to a big gain against Brazosport last Friday.

   Bay City will again test its resolve to shed past mistakes as it faces the Sealy Tigers there this Friday in a District 13-4A-1 contest. 
   Bay City is 0-7 going into this matchup against Sealy (1-2, 4-2). 
   The Blackcats lost to Brazosport 35-20 last Friday, while the Tigers were shut out by El Campo 28-0. 
   “Things haven’t gone our way and we are continuing to work on those things we’re not very good at,” said Blackcat Head Coach Patrick Matthews. 
   “Sealy is very good football team. Most people don’t realize they’re in a rebuilding phase as well and the (Sealy) coach is trying to put together a good football team,” Matthews said. 
   Sealy started the season strong, but had some upsets. 
   While Bay City and Fulshear are exceptions, the rest of District 13-4A-1teams have been ranked at some time in the state 4A division, Matthews said. 
   “We trying to be in position to make plays.

"Shorthorns run over Van Vleck" By: John Hoffman Special to the Sentinel

Van Vleck senior wide receiver Jalen Williams (6) looks downfield as he picks up good yardage against Schulenburg last Friday.

   The Schulenburg Shorthorns used a ball control offense, and an opportunistic defense to outscore the high-potent Van Vleck offense in a 49-34 win last Friday night.
    With the loss, Van Vleck has to win out the rest of the way in order to have a chance to reach the playoffs.
   Things went Van Vleck’s way early in the game, with the Leopard offense attacking quickly. 
   After Van Vleck forced a Schulenburg punt on their first possession of the night, the Leopard offense needed only one play to get onto the scoreboard. 
   Van Vleck runningback Sam Bree took the first Leopard handoff of the night from the Van Vleck 47-yard line and raced untouched for a quick touchdown. 
   Slade Huerta booted the extra point through, and the Leopards were up 7-0 with 9:02 left in the first quarter.
   The Leopard defense forced another Shorthorn punt on the next series, but a Van Vleck miscue got Schulenburg going.

Zombie Run set for Oct. 26

   Bay City Parks and Recreation Department is looking for help to stop the zombie horde from invading Riverside Park beginning at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 26.
   “Since Hurricane Harvey hit in 2017, Zombies have started to infiltrate the Wilderness Circle in Riverside Park,” said Kelly Penewitt, Parks and Recreation Supervisor.  
   Zombies and Zombie hunters are wanted to run – on and off road- this wilderness course that starts off on the pipeline, continues the Wilderness Trail, then down the road onto the jogging trail and finishes at the Riverside Ranger Station.  
   Zombies will have to be careful as there are obstacles along the way.  
   Zombie Hunters will be armed with marshmallow guns to “stun” the zombies.  
   At the end of the run, there will be a Riverside Liberation party with light refreshments.
   Event registration is now open, with current early registration and day of run fees at $35.
