Brazos Cougars football

Coming off their first win of the season last week against Flatonia, the Brazos Cougars were looking to take that momentum and turn it into a victory in their first district game against Bloomington. That’s exactly what they did. The Cougars won the game 48-3 to bring their overall record to 2-2 on the season with a 1-0 record in district play. Brazos will take on East Bernard on the road with a kickoff time of 7:30 p.m. Oct. 6.  

Bellville Brahmas football

After four straight losses to start off the season, including a 42-17 loss to their rival Sealy, the Brahmas were desperate for their first win of the season and they got it. Bellville defeated Wharton on the road 57-7. Freshman running back Trevon Green was the star of the game for the Brahmas rushing for 108 yards on 15 carries and two touchdowns. Junior James Wiley also came to play as he had 134 yards on 13 carries with a touchdown as well. The Brahmas’ defense smothered Wharton quarterback Donovan Krushall picking him off twice and forcing a completion percentage of only 37.5%. Bellville will hope this style of play continues against Taylor who they play on Oct. 6.
