Sharyland vs Donna: Battle of the unbeatens

20110930_Sharyland-v-Donna-Football_171In Sharyland’s 45-13 victory last week over McAllen Rowe, the Rattlers began District 30-5A with a solid start. Sharyland, whose offense is usually most talked about, showed they’re quickly developing a defense that is every bit as opportunistic and perhaps just as lethal.

Unbeaten Sharyland forced three Warriors turnovers and blocked two punts to help pad a score that began to get away from Rowe before halftime. But this week, Sharyland can ill afford to expect the same opportunities against a Donna team that boasts a perfect record of their own and quite a bit of momentum in their own right.

Hidalgo cruises past Huskies

The Hidalgo Pirates finally got a win as they rolled over the Juarez-Lincoln Huskies 21-7 Thursday night in La Joya. The Huskies are still looking for their first win as they drop to 0-5.

The Pirates got on the board first and continued to put pressure on the Huskies defense with a steady diet of slashing runs up the middle by running back J.D. Rodriguez and two very nice 30-plus yard catches by wide receiver Jonathan Cantu. The Pirates held a comfortable, if not huge, 14-0 lead after Silvestre Gutierrez scampered into the end-zone with 48 seconds left in the first half.

Lady Eagles ‘getting it done’

20110923-Mission-v-La-Joya-Volleyball_dy-071Mission Eagles Varsity Volleyball Voach Edna Clemons has a very simple philosophy.

“My practices consist of getting it done,” said Clemons. “I set goals for the girls. I push them to communicate and work as a team and they just have to reach those goals.”

Considering the Eagles’ muscular dismantling Tuesday night of La Joya Lady Coyotes 25-10, 25-17, 25-19, it would seem her girls have taken the philosophy to heart.

The Eagles jumped to early leads in all three games. Time and time again the Coyotes just couldn’t match up with the Eagles’ height at the net. Seniors Ruth Ruiz, Mayra Garcia and Gaby Martinez posed an almost impenetrable wall above the net that frustrated even crafty killer Lauren Moreno.

Lobos begin district with victory, send Eagles home frustrated

20110923-Mission-v-Palmview-Football-dy-065-SmallThe bad news for the Palmview Lobos is star receiver Santiago Munoz went out last night with a possible stress fracture in his foot, potentially ending his season. However, the good news is the Lobos had plenty of talent and more to make up for the loss as the red and black took down the Mission Eagles, 25-7.

Game of the Week Wrap Up: Game upset: Huskies take down Patriots

20110916-VMHS-v-J-L-Football_dy-095-SmallIt was a special night for the Juarez-Lincoln Huskies. One week after a 55-3 devastating loss to Weslaco East, Aaron Garcia’s squad rebounded in a heroic way with a 31-21 victory over the Veteran Memorial Patriots.

“This is special to us,” said Garcia after the game. The coach then added that the win was the biggest of his four years at the school. It was also the first over the Patriots.

Patriots and Huskies looking for answers on Friday night

20110916_football_Patriots_v_Hidalgo_lg_026Both the Veterans Memorial Patriots and the Juarez-Lincoln Huskies find themselves in a crisis of identity early on in this 2011 football season. Their Friday night match-up in La Joya will go a long way toward giving both programs a sense of just where they stand and what they’ll have to face after two weeks that haven’t necessarily gone their way.

The winless Huskies are coming off an absolute thumping by Weslaco East last week after giving up over 400 yards rushing and 122 yards passing in their last game. Juarez-Lincoln looked completely overmatched and somewhat aimless in their first conference game. Unfortunately for the Huskies, they’ve looked so throughout their young season. In their first three games the Huskies have scored just 17 points while giving up 116.
