After tough games in the second games of their seasons to Friendswood and Klein Collins, the Summer Creek Bulldogs and Atascocita Eagles both saw their football teams get back in the win column this past week.
After a 27-19 loss to Friendswood, behind quarterback John Holcombe, the Summer Creek Bulldogs responded with a solid performance and a 42-7 victory over the Goose Creek Memorial Patriots last Thursday night at Turner Stadium.
On their first drive of the game, the Bulldogs took the lead and took command which they would never relinquish.
Thanks in part to a roughing the punter penalty on Goose Creek, and a key 21-yard catch by Deon Cormier, the Bulldogs scored on a 5-yard touchdown run by Holcombe for a 7-0 lead.
Two possessions later, the Bulldogs used a five-play, 37-yard drive to reach the end zone again, this time on a 10-yard touchdown pass to Cormier to make the score 14-0. They would add another touchdown late in the half on a run by Holcombe for a 21-0 lead at halftime.
In the second half, it was more of the same. Summer Creek used a two-play drive to get in the end zone again 23 seconds into the third quarter, this time on a touchdown pass to Kenden Jones to make the score 28-0. Their scoring was capped off with touchdowns from Darius Everette and Eric Adams.
The Atascocita Eagles got back in the win column with a 63-7 win over district foe Kingwood that moves the Eagles to 2-1 for the season.
The Humble Wildcats football team lost to Splendora 14-7 Saturday night at Turner Stadium. The Wildcats dropped to 1-2 for the season.
The Panthers fell to the Porter Spartans 21-17 on a late Porter touchdown pass. The Panthers are 1-2.
This week, more great competition is on deck, as Atascocita hosts Channelview Thursday night, Summer Creek plays at Baytown Sterling Friday night, and Kingwood Park hosts Crosby Friday night.
