LEGACY WINS EPIC FIVE-SETTER An epic comeback from two games down put Legacy High School in control of the District 2-6A volleyball race. Legacy (26-10 overall) improved to 8-0 in district play and its 27-29, 16-25, 25-21, 25-21, 16-14 victory over Frenship gave the Lady Rebels a two-game lead over Frenship with four games to play. Considering that Legacy has swept Frenship, and Legacy might as well have a three-game lead for all intents and purposes. The Legacy defense came through with five players recording double-digit digs, including 39 from Sydney Leavitt. Marisa Calzada added 20. Christallynn Tate led Legacy with 10 kills, Loredana Fouonji added nine blocks, and Kendall Harrington and Yani Flores combined for 43 assists. "This team is relentless," Legacy coach Rachel Anglin said. "They knew what it required to come back from a 2-0 deficit, and they proved that tonight. Each and every person on this team did their part to win this game tonight. I am beyond proud of the grit they showed." Frenship falls to 20-16 and 6-2. LEGACY DEF.

SAN ANGELO – Midland High and San Angelo Central traded punches Thursday as both teams’ running games were in the spotlight of a District 2-6A football game at San Angelo Stadium. But the Bulldogs couldn’t keep up with the Bobcats’ ground attack. Central scored 21 unanswered points in the second half and ran away with a 41-17 win over MHS. Tyler Hill sprinted away from the Bulldog defense for an 86-yard TD run early in the fourth quarter, giving Central a three-score lead at 34-17, while converting a third-and-5 in the process. The road woes for the Bulldogs (2-4, 1-1) continued, as they fell to 0-4 in away games this year and dropped their fourth straight at San Angelo Stadium dating back to 2011. The Bobcats (3-4, 1-2) snapped a four-game losing skid and extended their win streak to eight games over the Bulldogs behind a 206-yard rushing effort from Hill and a 119-yard rushing performance from Darius Floyd. “We did not play well in the second half, it’s really that simple,” MHS head coach Thad Fortune said. “We just didn’t answer the call. Credit to Central, they played better than we did. They made a lot more plays and there you have it. We let it get away from us. For sure, when they were up and they score, we have to answer and we didn’t answer. You get behind. We’ve got to be better after halftime.” The Bulldogs seemed to be gaining momentum in the second quarter when Landry Walls scored on a 40-yard quarterback keeper, pushing MHS to a 14-13 lead with 7:27 on the clock. Walls finished with 126 yards rushing and two TDs on 16 carries. On Central’s ensuing possession, MHS sophomore linebacker Turner Squire had consecutive sacks to help force the Bobcats into a 40-yard field goal attempt, which they missed. The Bulldogs didn’t take advantage of the momentum, fumbling away the football on their own 32-yard line. Hill scored on a 25-yard run to push the Bobcats to a 20-14 advantage with 2:34 left in the first half. “We had a costly turnover in the first half that was game changing,” Fortune said. “We had the momentum at that time, so it’s a tough loss. Hopefully we can learn some lessons from it. But we didn’t play good enough in the second half to win the game and Central did a great job.” The Bulldogs were able to cut into Central’s lead before the half, as Bam Ruiz nailed a 31-yard field goal as time expired. The Bobcats led 20-17 at intermission. Central got the ball after halftime and capitalized when Floyd rushed for a 1-yard TD to extend the lead to 27-17. The Bulldogs had a chance to change momentum in the third quarter when cornerback Thombias Moy recovered a Bobcat fumble at midfield. Following the turnover, MHS had a fourth-and-3 at the Central 39-yard line, but were called for a false start. Fortune opted to punt the ball away. The Bulldogs converted only two first downs in the third quarter and never threatened again. “I can’t say enough about our defense,” Central head coach Kevin Crane said. “They were challenged and they rose to the occasion. They really played a magnificent game, kept us in there. That’s a really good offense (at Midland High). They operate it well. That quarterback (Landry Walls) is good. He’s fast. He’s dynamic. I can’t say enough about our defense tonight.” Central amassed 356 rushing yards on 39 carries, while the Bulldogs had 323 rushing yards on 54 attempts. MHS senior Zion Ward had 24 carries for 118 yards. “He’s a hard runner, shifty,” Crane said of Ward. “He’s rushed for a lot of yards this year. I thought we did a good job against him tonight.” The Bulldogs will look to bounce back when they host Odessa Permian (4-2, 1-1) next week. The Bobcats have an open date before visiting Permian on the following week.

The Midland High football team did exactly what it needed to do Friday night. The Bulldogs milked the clock with methodical, time-consuming drives to jump on the Bronchos with a fast start, and never gave up their cushion. OHS’ explosive offense spent a chunk of the first half on the sidelines and was staring at too big of a deficit when it started rolling the second half. Brylee Perez rushed for 116 yards and Zion Ward added 114 to lead MHS to a 49-28 win over the Bronchos. Bulldogs quarterback Landry Walls accounted for four total TDs, with two TD passes and two rushing TDs. MHS (2-3, 1-0) snapped a three-game losing streak with its first home game in a month. The Bulldogs raced out to a 21-0 lead at the 9:59 mark of the second quarter against an OHS team that had scored 171 points through its first four games. “I was just proud of the guys,” MHS head coach Thad Fortune said. “They executed. They played hard. We played hard on both sides of the ball. That’s what we have been preaching the last couple of weeks. That three-game skid, if we use it right, it will make us better and I think we did that tonight. OHS, they had a great team and they battled. They kept scoring points. Coach (Stacey) Martin and Coach (Eric) Jonas and our defensive staff battled that offense all night. They’ve got some great playmakers and I was really proud of our guys.” It started with an 11-play, 82-yard scoring drive to open the game, which was capped off by Walls’ 6-yard quarterback keeper for a score at the 6:29 mark of the first quarter. On the opening drive, Jacob Urias used a stiff arm to break away from a Broncho defender for 34-yard run on fourth-and-2 at midfield. The MHS defense forced the Bronchos to run only four plays on their first possession. The Bulldogs took advantage, as Walls scored his second touchdown on a 1-yard run to push MHS to a 14-0 advantage with 2:31 left in the first quarter. Early in the second quarter, OHS senior Camilo Nicholas boomed a 59-yard punt that was downed at the Bulldog 2-yard line. With little room to breathe, MHS responded with an impressive 3-play, 98-yard TD drive that culminated with a 57-yard run from Perez, extending the Dawgs’ lead to 21-0. The drive began with a 34-yard pass from Walls to Kyle Blanchard to get the Bulldogs out of harm’s way. MHS went into halftime with a 28-7 advantage. “I think the biggest deal was we weren’t trying to shoot ourselves in the foot again with penalties and when did do that, we bounced back pretty good,” Walls said. “We didn’t shoot ourselves down with that.” The Bulldogs carried their momentum into the second half. On OHS’ first play from scrimmage, Diego Cervantes threw a backwards lateral, which wasn’t secured by the ball carrier, allowing Andrew Vasquez to recover a fumble for MHS at the Broncho 27. The Bulldogs cashed in on the turnover, as Walls connected with Jakob Vines on a wide receiver screen for a 43-yard TD pass on third-and-30. MHS extended its advantage to 35-7. Cervantes got going in the second half, as he passed for 300 yards, rushed for 111 yards and accounted for four total TDs. But the Bronchos were beset by two second-half lost fumbles and could never cut the deficit to less than 21 points.
