WIMBERLEY -- The La Vernia Bear football team earned a win in the bi-district game against the Wimberley Texans last Friday night on the Texans’ home turf.

The Bears entered the game 9-1 overall and 3-0 in District 28-3A. Wimberley stood at 4-6 overall and 2-2 in District 27-3A play.

Earning the first points of the game, Levi Andrews completed an 8-yard pass from Colby Skelton with 6:21 remaining in the first quarter. Kyle Douglas kicked the extra point.

The second quarter began with another Bear touchdown. Vince Gill ran the ball in from 26 yards out with 10:24 remaining in the half. Douglas completed the extra-point kick.

The Bears’ defense kept the Texans from scoring for another quarter and scored for the third time before the end of the half. Skelton ran in from 14 yards with 24 seconds remaining, giving the Bears a 21-point lead at the half.

Both teams returned from halftime playing strong defense. Neither team put points on the board during the third quarter.

With pressures high, the Bears let their defenses down and allowed the Texans to score. Wimberley managed the 21-yard pass with 3:12 left in the game.

The Bears were able to hold the line for the rest of the game, defeating the Texans 21-7.

The Bears dropped the ball for four fumbles but lost none to Wimberley. The Texans lost two of their three fumbles.

Each team earned a substantial total of penalties. The Bears received 10 flags, losing 77 yards and a player due to unsportsmanlike conduct. The Texans garnered six penalties and lost 58 yards.
