Top 5 Reasons the Crossroads Get Pumped Up for Friday Night Lights
Hut Hut HIKE!
Friday night lights are back baby! Football is back in session and so is the school spirit. Crossroad towns from all directions are ready and bursting with energy awaiting weekly games.
First Week Down
The first week of the season is over and done with and some teams are already showing out. Teams have been training for weeks getting ready for the long-awaited 2021 Fall season to start.
Within the first week of games, there were already some teams who came out hitting the field hard and outshining their opponent. First week down but lots of talent and potential showing already.
First Week Recap
The Cuero Gobblers got their rematch with Lavernia after losing to them last year. They weren't playing any games and took the W, winning 62 to 7. Recap videos from MaXprep showed off player #2 running an incredible 80-yard touchdown- shout out!
Then we got the Refugio team absolutely dominating against the Bruni Badgers, taking the game with a whopping score of 56 to 6! Another team taking over the field last week was the Yoakum Bulldogs who secured their win against Palacios ending with a 56 point win.
Keep An Eye Out For The Redemption
Of course, we cannot forget about the Victoria football teams. Victoria East went up against an out-of-town team Columbia Roughnecks. East lost the first game but don't think they didn't give it their all. There was a spectacular 23-yard pass that would've made anyone proud. Victoria West also fell a little short against Lockhart just slipping away from a win with a 33-29 score. Next week can be a redemption!
Honorable Mention, Puttin in That Work
Honorable Mention to the Calhoun Sandcrabs who faced off against the Navarro Panthers. The Sandcrabs had their hands full playing a close game but overall winning 33-28. The game was intense and Calhoun had multiple 70+ yard runs; Sandcrabs putting in that work!
