Well it was close for at least a quarter. The Sharyland Rattlers entered Tom Landry Stadium last night, coming off it first district loss in three seasons. Apparently, a date with a struggling Mission squad was all that was needed as the Rattlers crushed their cross-town rivals, 52-23.
Mission came out competing in the first quarter, trading punches with the Rattlers. Fred Sanchez’s team fell behind 10-7 just before the first quarter ended and then 45 unanswered points. Nearly every Rattler player got in the game and the team used four different quarterbacks.
Next week, Sharyland hosts a 2-6 La Joya team. In the midst of that game, the Rattlers will be hoping for Donna Redskin upset over Memorial as Shary still has a chance of at least a co-district title.
