Fulshear, George Ranch gain notable first wins
It was quite a week of football for Lamar Consolidated ISD. While LCHS improved to 2-0 for the first time in three years and Foster outran Travis, Fulshear achieved the first varsity victory and George Ranch went to overtime to earn its first win under coach Nick Cavallo.
The Chargers and coach Oschlor Flemming led most of the way in a 42-26 victory against Hargrave at Traylor Stadium, erasing the only deficit with a 21-point run starting late in the third quarter.
Junior T.J. Fields and sophomore Tosin Ogunlana both scored three touchdowns as the Chargers blew away their Week 1 output in a 34-8 loss at La Grange. Both scored to build a 14-0 lead against Hargrave, with Fields adding a touchdown catch for a 21-7 halftime lead.
Hargrave took its only lead 26-21 late in the third quarter, but it did not last long as Ogunlana scored and added a 61-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Fields closed the historic victory with his third touchdown.
The Chargers visit a Lake Creek program in search of its first varsity win Sept. 14.
George Ranch came through in double overtime after Clear Lake scored in the final minute of regulation. A game-tying touchdown by Jacqruell McGee and an interception by Fabian Marks set up Erik Michel’s game-winning 32-yard field goal.
Michel, Cristian Jackson and McGee accounted for the scoring in regulation as the Longhorns won 27-24.
LCHS matched its win total from 2017 with a 27-0 shutout of Brazoswood. Michael Clark, Taye McWilliams, Daniel Blackmore and B.J. Harris all scored in the victory, with Blackmore and Harris combining for 239 rushing yards.
The stage is set for the Battle of the Berg, Sept. 14 at Traylor Stadium. The Mustangs and Rangers face off as non-district opponents after years of league competition.
Terry dropped to 0-2 with a 41-27 loss to Dulles but led in the second half twice against Class 6A opponents, including last week’s 9-7 loss to Bush.
