Fans of Badger Football will long remember, perhaps with a wince, the game on Friday night. Lampasas and LaVega, two well matched teams, meeting on the field at a Lampasas Homecoming, and duking it out in a high scoring offensive dual. The Badgers set the tone with a two play 89 yard march for a TD.

LaVega answered with a kickoff return to tie it up. It was running back Spencer Maples big night. He had picked up most of the yardage on the first TD, then came back to score another, and so it went most of the night. Maples, not getting to handle the ball very much in the early season, was moved to the fullback slot and was excellent there.

 

The entire Badger offense was good—staying ahead of LaVega almost all night. The lapse came at the very end of the game when the Pirates surged to tie it up 35-35 at the end of regulation play. The game went to overtime and the Badger offense did what it had been able to most of the night—they scored. The Badgers opted to go for the extra point kick, giving them 42 points. Then the ball went over to LaVega and the Pirates appeared to be stymied by the Badger defense for a few plays, but the defenders let down on one fateful play that set the TD for the Pirates. Now it’s 42-41 Lampasas.

The Pirates seemed to set up for an attempt at a tying extra point, but Badger Coach Bryan Emerson called a time out, thinking it would “freeze” the kicker and cause him to miss. It turned out that it gave the Pirate coach a chance to change plans and go for a two point conversion that could give the Pirates the win. And…that’s how it went... Pirates 43-Badgers 42. What a game! The Badger Tennis team stretches for a match last week with Fredericksburg, one of the top teams in the state, finishing 2nd in state last year. In the end Lampasas lost 3-16, but there was good play in several matches. Thornton, Burbey and Kernes were able to win theirs. The meet was one last warm-up for regionals this week.

The team will leave Thursday for the seeding meeting, then play as early at 8am Friday morning. Saturday is to be finals and the team hopes to be in them. Competing with Lampasas in the Region II tournament will be Taylor, Groesbeck, China Springs, Van, Center and Splendora. Lady Badger Volleyball lost across the board to Liberty Hill on Friday. The fish lost in 2, the JV in 2 and the varsity in 3 straight.
