Somerset 10
La Vernia 38

LA VERNIA -- What a difference a year makes. At this time last season the Bears were 4-6 and had just finished a 2-2 district campaign. This year, the Bears are 9-1 overall, and thanks to a 38-10 win over Somerset, are the district champs with a District 28-3A record of 4-0.

Somerset went to La Vernia with a 2-1 district mark, hoping it could get a win and a share of the title. La Vernia had other plans, though.

The first of three first-quarter touchdowns occurred as La Vernia quarterback Colby Skelton connected with Levi Andrews for 30 yards and the score. Kyle Douglas added the point-after kick, and the Bears held a 7-0 lead. A few minutes later, however, Somerset tied things up with a 5-yard touchdown run and kick.

With the score once again tied, Somerset may have been a bit too excited and let its guard down, because La Vernia needed just 12 seconds to reassume the lead, as Colton Parrish took the kickoff 85 yards for a big Bear touchdown. Douglas kicked the extra point, and the lead was back to 7 for La Vernia.

The Bear defense held Somerset and La Vernia quickly put its offense back on the field. The Bears found the end zone for the third time of the night on a 2-yard run from Landon Richter with 10:22 to play in the first half. Douglas remained perfect kicking the ball, and the lead was 21-7 for La Vernia.

While Somerset would not see the end zone again in the first half, La Vernia went on to score on a field goal and touchdown to close out the first half. With 5:09 to play, Douglas booted a 35-yard field goal to make the score 24-7. Then, with 1:09 left on the second-quarter clock, Vince Gill scored from 7 yards out. Douglas kicked the extra point, and the Bears took a commanding 31-7 lead into halftime.

Somerset scored its final points of the game at the 6:47 mark of the third quarter with a 30-yard field goal. While La Vernia did not immediately respond, the Bears did add some insurance to the board early in the fourth quarter as Skelton connected with Andrews once more, this time for 42 yards and a touchdown. Douglas went five for five on extra points, and the Bears locked up the game with a 38-10 advantage.

Skelton completed 4 of 9 passing attempts for 137 yards and two touchdowns. Andrews was the man of the night, catching three passes for 101 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Justus Parker also had one catch for 36 yards.

On the ground, 10 different Bears carried the ball. Gill led the way with 16 carries for 52 yards, followed by Parrish with 21 yards, Andrews with 15 yards, Jevante Anderson with 12 yards, Ricky Utt with 11 yards, and Landon Richter with 9 yards. Tristan Summy ran twice for 3 yards, Skelton ran for 2 yards, and Marcos Velasquez picked up a yard on his one carry. Gavin Bigler ran once but was stopped for no gain.

On the other side of the ball, the Bear defense did a great job holding the potentially potent Bulldog offense in check. Quarterback Koy Detmer Jr. completed just four of eight passes for 31 yards and was intercepted by the Bear defense twice. Zeke Rosales completed three of five passes for 38 yards. The Bulldogs also ran the ball 38 times but were held to 136 yards. La Vernia also forced two fumbles.

As has been the norm in this district, the referees were busy dishing out penalties all night, as both sides drew flags all night. While the Bears’ nine penalties for 70 yards had to drive Coach Bo Robinson crazy, it paled in comparison to the 16 penalties for 139 yards that Somerset racked up.

The victory puts La Vernia at 9-1 on the year and 4-0 in district play. The Bears will now advance to the bi-district round of the playoffs where they will face the Wimberley Texans. The teams will play this Friday, Nov. 15, at 7:30 p.m. at Wimberley. The winner will advance to the area championship to face either Cuero or Columbus.
