Bandera 10
La Vernia 35

LA VERNIA -- The La Vernia Bear football team struggled during the first half of its Homecoming game against the Bandera Bulldogs but was able to come out with another win.

The Bears, mostly a running team, made several offensive-passing errors during the first two quarters of the game. La Vernia had two fumbles, both recovered by the Bulldogs, in the first quarter. At the end of the first, both teams had yet to appear on the board.

The Bulldogs scored their first points of the game within the first two minutes of the second quarter. With a 39-yard field goal by Maverick Hicks, the Bulldogs earned 3 points.

At 6:58 in the second, the Bulldogs forced another Bear fumble. Bandera’s Ishmael Macneil recovered another La Vernia fumble with 1:43 left on the clock. The score stood 3-0 at the end of the half.

The Bears returned from the half like a transformed team, pulling themselves together offensively. La Vernia gained a total of 311 yards during their Homecoming game.

The Bears’ first score was earned by Colton Parrish, with a 20-yard pass from quarterback Colby Skelton at the 10:33 mark of the third quarter. The kick was no good.

The Bulldogs worked hard to stop the Bears but were unsuccessful. La Vernia earned two more touchdowns before the end of the third quarter.

Skelton, a junior, scored with an 11-yard run with 6:20 remaining. Levi Andrews completed the 2-point conversion run for the Bears.

The last score of the quarter was earned with a run of 17 yards by Parrish, and the kick by Kyle Douglas was good. The Bears led 21-3 with 3:05 left in the third quarter.

The last quarter started with a 15-yard personal foul penalty against the Bulldogs.

The Bears used the yardage gain to their advantage, earning another touchdown shortly after.

Justus Parker had the gain with a 14-yard touchdown reception from Skelton with 8:23 remaining in the game. After receiving a false start penalty, Douglas completed the extra-point kick.

With just more than six minutes left to play, the Bulldogs returned the favor, scoring a 28-yard touchdown. Bandera’s Jonathan Stoufflet completed the pass from Joe Rodriguez. The kick was good, making the score 28-10.

The Bears scored the final points of the game with a 7-yard touchdown by Andrews with 3:25 left in the game. La Vernia finished the Homecoming game on top with a 35-10 win, bringing their record to 4-1.

The Bears definitely played a ground game, running the ball 37 times for a total of 205 yards, compared to the Bulldogs’ 172 yards total, with 61 yards gained from 32 running attempts.

Andrews, Skelton, and Jevante Anderson earned the most yards for the team, gaining 25, 61, and 74 yards, respectively.

Skelton also completed 9 of 15 passing attempts for 106 yards, gaining three touchdowns.

The Bears will travel to face the 1-4 Taylor Ducks Friday, Oct. 4. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
