Tidehaven junior Kylan Sardinea (5) emerges from a cluster of defenders to break free and run for a touchdown, with a block from Micah Coleman-Longoria (66).

   Tidehaven had nearly 500 yards of offense in blasting Johnson City 48-6 last week, but Head Coach David Lucio said his team faces a totally different opponent in No. 7 ranked Poth this Friday. 
   “The Johnson City game went well. We wanted to put them away early and we were able to accomplish that,” Lucio said. 
   “Our passing game was on fire in the first half. 
   They had no answer for both Mason Perales and Austin Smith,” he added. 
   Quarterback Blake Garcia was 9-13 for 251 yards and five touchdowns.

"Kayak camping promises big adventures" By Willie Younger MCBNC Water Activities Coordinator

   Exploring waters and waterways by paddle craft can prove to be an immensely enjoyable approach to meeting a variety of objectives. 
   The alluring possibilities include, but are not limited to, wildlife observation, fitness, fishing, adventure racing, exploration, along with relaxing solitude and/or social interaction. 
   When kayak camping, everything one requires in order for overnighting along an isolated shore must be carried in, and on, their smallish, Eskimo-style watercraft. 
   So, the Matagorda County Birding Nature Center (MCBNC) has scheduled a workshop designed to equip outdoors enthusiasts with the extensive know-how needed to comfortably and safely enjoy overnight excursions to remote and/or primitive waterfront locations adventurously accessed by kayak. The topics to be covered, in depth, include:
Thoughtful selecting gear, clothing, kayaks, food, campsites and companions.

Senior Blackcat quarterback Carlos Lara picks up yardage with Ricebird defenders in pursuit.

After closing out a winless season and a 40-14 loss to longtime rival El Campo, Head Blackcat Coach Patrick Matthews said the coaches now will turn to evaluating the team – both coaches and players.
   “I thought it was a tough season, but I believed the kids were very resilient week in and week out,” Matthews said.
   The 100th consecutive meeting between Bay City and El Campo was played for the last time in Memorial Stadium. The game will be played in a new Memorial Stadium next year.
   Bay City looked impressive in the first half – holding a 14-13 lead at halftime – but fell hard in a third-quarter that began a downward spiral.

Sophomore Leopard running back Brown (10) looks for an opening against Bloomington.

   The Van Vleck Leopards used a late first-half touchdown to stretch a tight game and then followed up with a dominating second half en route to a 47-6 victory over the Bloomington Bobcats last Friday night.
   After a scoreless first quarter, the Leopard offense began to get things rolling. Van Vleck took a drive from their own 30-yard line and went to work behind the running of Sam Bree. 
   Bree broke off a 25-yard run to begin the drive, and followed it with a 15-yard run on his next carry. 
   Three plays later, Bree took it up the middle from 19 yards out for the first score of the night.
