Tournament Recap - Jan 12-14

Brazos Valley Cup - Varsity

This past weekend, the Kingwood High School Lady Mustang Soccer Team participated in the Brazos Valley Cup hosted by Bryan ISD. It was a beautiful weekend for soccer and was very productive for the Lady Mustangs.

Game 1 - Cy Springs (Win 5-1): The game started off with a bang with sophomore Colleen Feagins scoring just 5 minutes into the game (assisted by sophomore Cat Childs). Just four minutes later, freshman Emma Ebert scored a great goal assisted by junior Fiona Zimmerman. Ten minutes later (20th minute), Fiona took a corner kick that senior Cora Barker headed past the keeper, bringing the score to 3-0.

Nine minutes into the second half, Cy Springs would score their only goal on a long free kick that sailed over the head of senior goalkeeper Brianna Wallerich. In the 15th minute, however, the Lady Mustangs responded with senior Hannah Bodron scoring an unassisted goal that would take the score to 4-1. Two minutes later, Emma Ebert scored the 5th and final goal of the game from a pass from Colleen Feagins. The game would end 5-1.


Game 2 - Pflugerville (Win 5-3): This game was also dominated early by the Lady Mustangs. Just five minutes into the game, Colleen Feagins received a pass from senior Nikki Brown and smashed it past the goalkeeper. Fifteen minutes later, Colleen beat a defender on the dribble and played a ball to Fiona Zimmerman who one-touched it into the net. Right before the first half ended, senior Amanda Poppell took a free kick just outside the box and sent it into the back of the goal, thus bringing the score to 3-0.

The second half was a scoring battle between the two teams. Five minutes into the half, junior Rachel Guilfoyle crossed a ball to Fiona Zimmerman who touched it past the keeper. Five more minutes later, Amanda Poppell played a ball through the Pflugerville defense that Colleen Feagins picked up, beat two defenders on the dribble, and scored the team's 5th goal. However, between the 25th and 30th minute of the second half, the Pflugerville team would score 3 unanswered goals to make the game a little more interesting. It was too little too late though as the game would eventually end 5-3.


Game 3 - Clear Lake (Loss 1-0): The first game Saturday morning was dominated by the Lady Mustang offense, but the stars were not aligned correctly to allow a goal. The team managed to out-shoot the Clear Lake team by a margin of 18 to 4. However, the Clear Lake goalkeeper made some fantastic saves and managed to keep the game tied at 0-0. Then, with only 15 minutes left in the game, Clear Lake earned a free kick thirty yards from the Lady Mustang goal. As soon as the kick was taken, a Clear Lake attacker ran onto it and one-touched into the goal, giving Clear Lake a 1-0 lead. The last 15 minutes was a whirlwind of Lady Mustang offense with many shots being taken and possession being almost 100%. But, in the end, the game would end in a very close 1-0 loss. This loss would force the Lady Mustangs to play in the 3rd/4th Place game later that afternoon.


Game 4 - Friendswood (Win 4-2): After a short break, the Lady Mustangs would take on the Friendswood Mustangs in the 3rd/4th place game at the A&M Women's Soccer Field (Ellis Field). Only three minutes after the initial kickoff, Colleen Feagins played a ball into the box to senior Nikki Brown who buried it in the back of the net. The next 25 minutes would be spent mainly in the middle of the field with both teams keeping possession evenly. Then, in the 29th minute, one of the Friendswood forwards sped past the Lady Mustang defense and scored a one-on-one goal with goalkeeper Brianna Wallerich. However, 2 minutes later, the Lady Mustangs would answer swiftly with a goal by senior Hannah Bodron (assisted by Fiona Zimmerman) bringing the lead back to 1. Two minutes before halftime, Friendswood would again get through the Lady Mustang defense and speed down the field to tie the game at 2-2. This would bring the half to an end.

In the tenth minute of the second half, Colleen Feagins was tackled in the Friendswood box setting up a penalty kick that Hannah Bodron would smash past the goalkeeper. For the rest of the game, Friendswood would be kept to only one shot on goal, while the Lady Mustangs would dominate the game and get another nine shots at goal. With 10 minutes left in the game, Hannah Bodron picked up the ball on the Lady Mustang half of the field and played a quick long ball past the Friendswood defense that Colleen Feagins ran onto. Colleen proceeded to dribble through two Friendswood defenders, cut the ball back in front of another and then slide the ball past the goalkeeper to bring the score to 4-2.


The Lady Mustangs are now currently 4-2-1 and will play Clear Lake again next Thursday in Clear Lake. After that re-match, the Lady Mustangs will wait one full week before taking on their first district opponent, Atascocita (Sat. Jan 28th)

James Robb Taylor

 A Stillwater, Okla. man, who owns Perkins Livestock Sales, was arrested last week and charged with two felony charges of embezzlement of livestock.

Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) Special Rangers Brett Wellden and Bart Perrier led the investigation.

In August 2015, the suspect and owner of Perkins Livestock Sales, James Robb Taylor, 38, of Stillwater, Okla., called Superior Livestock Auction and Oklahoma National Stockyards and placed two orders for cattle to be shipped.

Both loads of cattle were not delivered to Taylor’s sale barn, but were instead taken to other properties and quickly moved to conceal their location. When contacted for payment, Taylor denied purchasing the loads of cattle and claimed his identify had been stolen by an unknown person.


The investigation revealed that the suspect took deliberate steps to conceal the fact that he ordered the cattle and then took additional steps to move the cattle and conceal them in Noble County, Okla. 


The suspect then shipped the cattle to various feedlots in an attempt to sell them for profit. The first load consisted of 80 heifers and sold for $110,000, and the second load included 242 head of cattle that sold for $346,582.


Wellden and Perrier arrested Taylor Tuesday, and the suspect is being held at the Oklahoma County jail on a $10,000 bond.  This is an ongoing investigation and additional charges are possible.




TSCRA has 30 special rangers stationed strategically throughout Texas and Oklahoma who have in-depth knowledge of the cattle industry and are trained in all facets of law enforcement. All are commissioned as Special Rangers by the Texas Department of Public Safety and/or the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.


TSCRA is a 138-year-old trade association and is the largest and oldest livestock organization based in Texas. TSCRA has more than 17,000 beef cattle operations, ranching families and businesses as members. These members represent approximately 50,000 individuals directly involved in ranching and beef production who manage 4 million head of cattle on 76 million acres of range and pasture land primarily in Texas and Oklahoma, but throughout the Southwest.


Houston City Council Member Dave Martin  announces that in an effort to provide more permanent pothole repairs, the City of Houston's Public Works and Engineering Department will be the Kingwood area to install a panel replacement near the intersection of Kingwood Drive and Willow Terrace. Beginning Monday, September 21, construction will begin on the left westbound lane. Crews are expected to have the work completed within 14 days, weather permitting.  


Construction crews will operate between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekdays, and possibly on Saturdays, to expedite the construction. During this time, expect the left westbound lane to be closed, due to these construction activities. Flaggers and caution devices will be put in place on site that will help with traffic flow through the construction zone. Additionally, the lanes impacted by construction will be closed overnight during the concrete curing process, and traffic will be diverted to the adjacent lane. Martin's office has also worked with the Houston Police Department's Kingwood Substation to help ease traffic congestion.

Voter Registrar works to educate and register high school seniors to vote


Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector and Voter Registrar Mike Sullivan and his staff are launching an initiative in high schools across the county to help educate students about voter registration and their rights.


"This is an exciting partnership to help reach out to local high school seniors, educate them of the electoral process and help them register to vote," said Mike Sullivan. “My goal is to work with all school districts in Harris County and continue this innovation every year.”


Sullivan's staff spent the last week working in Aldine Independent School District (AISD) high schools speaking with high school seniors and helping them register to vote.


“I am very excited to be able to register to vote this year,” said Zahely Estrada, Senior at Aldine High School. “Voting is your voice and I’m excited to be able to choose the leaders who are going to represent our city and country.”


“Our department works tirelessly to register voters, from local organizations, community groups and neighborhood leaders,” said Amy Nguyen, Associate Director of Voter Registration. “This new outreach effort allows us to speak directly to students who are at least 17 years and 10 months old, the minimum age requirement to be eligible to register to vote. Our office works with the school to educate the students on voter registration, accept their voter registration applications and answer one-on-one questions.”


The Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector’s Office is open to working with all high schools to help register senior students to vote. Please contact Pamela Dora-Thomas at 713-274-8242 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
