Brazos readies for Danbury

Cougars, Panthers both looking for first win in district play


After falling to 0-2 in District 14-3A-D2 last week, the Brazos Cougars have a meeting this Friday with the Danbury Panthers who similarly fell to 1-3 overall and 0-2 in district play last Friday.

Brazos finished non-district play 1-3 and has now fallen to 1-5 overall with a point per game average of 13 points while allowing an average of 42.8 points against. Danbury has scored 76 points in four games and allowed 157 for averages of 19 points for and 39.3 points against per game.

The Panthers opened district with a 54-29 loss to Van Vleck and are coming off a 56-7 defeat to East Bernard who most recently checked in at No. 4 in the “Dave Campbell’s” state rankings and No. 2 in the Houston Chronicle’s media poll.

The Cougars suffered their second setback in district play with a 42-6 loss to Tidehaven last Friday where starting quarterback Jared Demny had to be removed due to injury. In his place stepped freshman Jeffrey Martinez who supplied the visitors’ lone score of the night with a 12-yard throw to junior James Butler who secured the catch at the goal line for the touchdown.
