Week 2 TXHSFB Takeaways
Sunday, 23rd September 2018 - 6:59PM
John Tyler Runs The Rose City:

The Lions had a disappointing start to the 2018 season after getting thumped on the road against Cedar Hill 57-7, oh what a difference a week makes.

Tyler Lee had no answer for the CUJO rushing attack during the crosstown rivalry game on Saturday. The Lions accumulated over 700-yards of total offense en route to a 65-21 victory.

The schedule doesn’t get any easier for John Tyler, Friday they’re on the road against undefeated Longview, kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

The Streak is Over:

Entering Friday’s game against Austin Travis the University Trojans held the states longest active losing streak at 47-games. The Trojans last victory was against Joshua (31-21) in 2013. When it was all said and done the Trojans were finally victorious 37-0.

The Trojans showed promise in week 1 against arch rival Waco High, but they fell short 29-22.

University dominated the line of scrimmage and took control of the game right out of the gate. The Trojans were up 37-0 at the half and Travis elected to use a running clock during the final two quarters.

The Trojans will look to establish a winning-streak in week 3 as they host Burleson Friday at 7:30 p.m.

Lobos Own their Rivals:

How do you follow up beating a rival on a regionally televised game, you dominate another rival in the 108th meeting that’s how.

Longview and Marshall have been trading blows for over a century and the Lobos delivered a knockout punch Friday with a 60-14 victory over the Mavericks.

The Lobos will be seeking the Triple Crown in rivalry games on Friday when they host John Tyler at 7:30 p.m.

Bell Defeats Legend for First Career Win:

China Spring head coach Brian Bell fell short in his debut last week against Lorena 35-21.

The Cougars were able to bounce back and get their new coach his first victory on Friday against Addison Trinity Christian 13-10.

As Bell was orchestrating his Cougars, he was trying to counter every move made by a former NFL head coach and legend, Mike Singletary.

Bell never seemed intimidated and his focus carried over into his team, which eventually lead to the victory.

Gladewater a Dark Horse:

The Bears opened the season with an impressive victory on the road against Spring Hill 61-30 and if that wasn’t enough to get the attention of people across the state, then what they did to #8 Atlanta might be.

Gladewater attacked the Rabbits on the ground and put up five rushing touchdowns in the 37-20 victory. The Bears defense held an Atlanta offense that put up 41-points on #5 Gilmer to just 20-points. Offensively Gladewater is averaging 49 ppg and defensively they are allowing 25 ppg.

Up next for Gladewater is a home game with the Center Roughriders, kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. on Friday.

La Vega Comes up Short:

Can we get La Vega vs Argyle every year?

The two squads have put together two instant classics in the past four seasons separated by a total of four points, including La Vega’s state championship in 2015.

On Friday the #3 Pirates fell to the #2 Eagles 31-29 at home, but they have nothing to hang their heads about.

The Pirates offense is extremely balanced and they can score at will on the ground or through the air. Defensively they are holding opponents to 19.5 ppg and you can expect to see that number decrease as the season progresses.

La Vega proved that even though they have a new head coach, the winning tradition remains in tact.
