LV Bears gain valuable experience against Sandcrabs
La Vernia 34
Port Lavaca Calhoun 54
PORT LAVACA -- After a big win over Medina Valley in its season opener, the La Vernia Bear football team traveled to Port Lavaca last Friday night to take on the Calhoun Sandcrabs. The Sandcrabs are a powerhouse team in Class 4A every year, and Bear Head Coach Bo Robinson knows the game provides his team with some invaluable game-time experience.
Like the Bears, the Sandcrabs were also coming off a win in their first game of the year, though theirs was against Class 5A Corpus Christi Carroll. Calhoun outlasted the Carroll Tigers 21-17 to secure the opening win.
While the Bears may have been outgunned in the contest, they still gave a great effort to compete with a quality perennial powerhouse. The Bears eventually fell by the final score of 54-34, but still showed they can play at a high level.
The 1-1 Bears will be back at home this Friday, Sept. 13, as La Vernia hosts Canyon Lake. The Hawks are sitting at 0-2 on the year, with losses to Blanco and Somerset. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. in Bear Stadium.
No stats were reported for La Vernia’s game with Port Lavaca.
