Sam Houston 6
La Vernia 50

LA VERNIA -- A storm did blow through the area last weekend, but it certainly wasn’t when the Sam Houston Hurricanes showed up at Bear Stadium for a District 28-3A football game. La Vernia had no issues with Sam Houston, easily defeating the visiting team by the score of 50-6.

The onslaught began in the closing minutes of the first quarter as junior Jevante Anderson scampered 20 yards for a Bear touchdown. The extra-point attempt was no good, and the lead stood at 6-0 with 2:22 to play in the first.

Early in the second, Anderson picked up his second rushing touchdown of the game, this time from 21 yards out. Quarterback Colby Sims then hit Colby Skelton for the 2-point conversion, and the score was 14-0 with 8:32 still to play in the half.

The Bears got the ball back with plenty of time to score again, and Sims and Levi Andrews did the honors for La Vernia, as the two hooked up from 9 yards out. Dews booted the extra point for the Bears, and the lead was 21-0 going into halftime.

After a long halftime break, the Bears picked up right where they left off. La Vernia took less than three minutes off the third-quarter clock before scoring its fourth touchdown of the night on another passing play from Sims to Andrews. This one was good for 35 yards and the touchdown, giving the Bears a 27-0 lead. Dews came on for the point-after, and it was a 28-point game with 9:39 to play in the third.

The scoring was far from over for La Vernia in the third, though, as Anderson scored on a 2-yard run with 3:28 to play in the quarter. A quick stop and change of possession put the Bears deep into Hurricane territory, and freshman Matthew Montgomery ran in for a 13-yard touchdown. Dews was good on one of the two extra-point attempts, and the lead was 41-0 with 2:10 still remaining in the third.

The Hurricanes finally got on the board early in the fourth quarter with a 33-yard passing play, but still felt mauled on the point-after. Ironically, Dews, who also plays defense when not handling the Bears’ own kicking duties, turned the Hurricanes’ point-after kick into 2 points for La Vernia. The Sam Houston kick was blocked, and Dews scooped up the loose ball and returned it to the other end of the field for 2 points. The great defensive play made it a 43-6 contest, and things were all but over.

The final score of the night came on a 4-yard touchdown run from sophomore Justus Parker. Dews kicked the extra point, and the final score was 50-6 in favor of La Vernia.

Montgomery led the Bear ground game with 174 yards on 19 carries. Anderson earned 86 yards on 16 carries, and Adam Alcorta tacked on another 40 yards. Parker was good for 37, Sims ran twice for 24 yards, and Andrews added a couple of carries for 17 more.

The Bears’ aerial assault has continued to improve with Sims at quarterback, and he completed 11 of 19 attempts for 134 yards. Andrews was his favorite target of the night, catching five passes for 77 yards and two touchdowns. Skelton caught three balls for 17 yards, and Jose Sahagun reeled in two tosses for 36 yards. Anderson had one catch for 4 yards.

Meanwhile, the defense played an outstanding game for the Bears, holding the Hurricanes to 117 total yards. Sam Houston’s running game was all but stopped, as the Canes managed just 53 yards on 25 carries. The hard-hitting defense also forced an incredible five Hurricane fumbles, four of which were recovered by La Vernia to end Sam Houston drives. The Hurricanes’ passing game didn’t find any additional success either, as La Vernia held Sam Houston to just five completions in 13 attempts for 64 yards. The Bears intercepted a pass, as well.

The victory elevates the Bears to 4-5 on the year and 2-1 in district play. La Vernia will close out its regular season this Friday, Nov. 9, as the team travels to Somerset to take on the district-leading Bulldogs. A win would give the Bears a share in the District 28-3A title, while a loss will leave La Vernia alone in third place. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
