Progress Times photo by Doug YoungEDINBURG – If anyone saw The University of Texas Longhorns come-from-behind to pull off a last minute 41-36 victory over Oklahoma State on Saturday, then they have a good idea of what went on at Cats Stadium two nights earlier between Sharyland and Edinburg Economedes. 

The Rattlers had their character put to the test and overcame a 28-point second quarter by the Jaguars and a 14-point halftime deficit to pull off a dramatic 55-48 victory over Economedes on an 11-yard touchdown run by Sharyland quarterback Tres Barrera with 17 seconds left in the game.

Last year the Rattlers gave up the district crown they won two years ago. They want it back. That’s one of the main objectives of the tough schedule that Sharyland cross country head coach Joe González has put together.

“The season was created as a tough season, and as a hard schedule,” said González. “We’ve been traveling a lot this year, from the Rio Grande Valley Classic to the UTSA Invitational. This week we travel to Corpus Christi. It’s been real tough and we haven’t had one easy meet.”

Progess Times photo by Luciano GuerraDepending on which Big 6 football team you’re a fan of, Week 3 was either good news or bad news for you and your team.

Two of the teams that fell into the good news column last week were Mission High and Veterans Memorial. That’s because both teams had Week 3 off to heal up from their previous games and to prepare for their initial district games of the year. Not only do both Mission teams face foes with records identical to their own this week but the Eagles and the Patriots will both find themselves lining up against Tigers tonight.

In a battle of two undefeated teams, Coach Mario Peña and his 3-0 Mission Eagles will be traveling to Valley View tonight to play the 3-0 Tigers. Valley View’s three wins this year have come against Progresso (42-0), Brownsville Lopez (42-17) and Hidalgo (16-14). The Eagles have victories over Palmview (21-19), Brownsville Hanna (13-7) and C.C. Tuloso Midway (31-24).

“We’re looking forward to district. It’s like I told the kids, we’re 0-0 in district and it’s important to get that first district win,” Sharyland head coach Ron Adame said. “George Espinoza is going to have that team ready to go. They’ve got some momentum and they’ve won their last two games. Anytime you win, that attitude, that atmosphere becomes contagious because it breeds confidence.”
