2A-1 Region I District 2

Postby PaulR » Mon Sep 25, 2017 9:01 am

2A-1 Region I District 2
One more week and the fun begins. Should be an exciting year this year. Most everybody has a lot of fire power and defense to back it up. We will know more about Abernathy this week when they play Memphis after a week off. If New Deal stays healthy and keep spreading the ball out they have more weapons this season from years past. Sundown just keeps winning and beat a good program late in the game against Farwell last week. And Hale Center gets Bovina this week which should be a good challenge for their explosive offense. Very well could see 4 teams with no losses entering district play.

School Name W-L Pct. PF PA Strk

New Deal 4-0 1.000 173 58 4 W
Hale Center 4-0 1.000 180 59 4 W
Sundown 4-0 1.000 182 80 4 W
Abernathy 3-0 1.000 124 34 3 W
Olton 2-2 0.500 76 76 2 L
Floydada 1-3 0.250 93 95 1 L

We will know more about Abernathy and Sundown this week. Hale Center is the sleeper. I believe they are capable enough to sneak up on any of us. Hale Center's physical play cost us plenty last year. New Deal, what can I say, they haven't played a full 4 quarters all season with all of the starters. We are deeper at most positions than we have ever been. And faster in some positions from years past. If we can stay healthy I think you will see some big numbers this season. This year New Deal's strength is defense. 10 Interceptions and 3 turnovers with three scores and all games so far have been 3A and 4 A opponents except Sunray. Offense, normally we have only one or two horses scoring. This year so far 10 people have put points on the board.
Predictions:
New Deal over Olton by 35
Hale Center over Floydada by 45
Abernathy over Sundown by 2 This one could go either way. In my mind I see Abernathy winning this one. But the hairs standing up on my neck say Sundown.

I never put the cart before the horse. Our district isn't about whom is best. I believe it's about whom survives.

On Friday night, more Texas high school football teams will join in on district action.

And if eyes weren’t already on District 2-2A Division I entering the season thanks in part to the Antelopes’ advancement to the fifth round of the playoff last year, there are certainly compelling stories waiting to unfold with four undefeated teams entering the slate. Of the aforementioned squads, Abernathy and Sundown are slated for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff Friday at Antelope Stadium.

“Abernathy is a semifinalist returning from last year and coach (Darrell Daily’s) son is a real good player,” said Roughnecks coach Steve Smith, whose team is 5-0. “They are well coached, have a lot of discipline and don’t beat themselves. So, when you play a team that strong and disciplined you really have to contain your own mistakes and be disciplined in your own place.”

The Antelopes (5-0), Sundown, New Deal and Hale Center make up the undefeated quartet, but Smith isn’t underestimating outliers Floydada and Olton.

“This is a very good district top to bottom,” Smith said. “I know four of us are undefeated, but the other two are are good quality teams. I guarantee one of these teams will be undefeated by the time it is all over, but the thing with that is it makes you play up to that level. If you are in a bad district sometimes your play doesn’t improve. In this district, you better be ready to go ever night.”

Abernathy sophomore quarterback Bryson Daily continues to spearhead the Antelope offense, accounting for 978 total yards and 15 touchdowns. Paired with teammate and junior Kole Carlisle, who has 464 rushing yards and six touchdowns, Abernathy has averaged 41 points a game.

The Roughnecks have found some talented players in their underclassmen, as well. Sundown sophomore quarterback Christian Huey has 1,590 total yards and 21 touchdowns through five games of work.

Abernathy coach Darrell Daily and company will look to keep Huey and the Sundown offense off the field Friday night while making the most of every drive.

The winner of the contest gains an advantage in district play, remaining undefeated in the process. The undefeated Lions take on Olton, while the Owls face Floydada after a week off.

With the talent that is featured in 2-2A, the district’s champs could see a prolonged playoff push.

“It is a tough district,” Daily said. “Last year, we went all the way to the semifinals and there were close games in district. We had to come back to beat Sundown last year. Our kids played hard. New Deal and Hale Center, who we beat by seven last game of (district), and those other teams were competitive. This district is tough and the teams are well coached. So, it will be a battle very Friday night, not just tomorrow.”

http://lonestarvarsity.com/news/37661/c ... s-sundown/

ABERNATHY — Sundown had the bodies positioned in front Kole Carlisle, but with even a little bit of daylight the Abernathy running back was dangerous.

Once Carlisle saw his opening, he let his legs take over.

Carlisle broke free on runs of 63 and 57 yards in the Antelopes’ 49-16 win over the Roughnecks in District 2-2A action on Friday.

“Run as fast as you can. That’s my mentality,” he said. “We executed our game plan and the offensive line blocked amazing. On defense, we always play tough.”

Carlisle accounted for 278 total yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in the contest. The Antelopes remain undefeated at 6-0 overall and improved to 1-0 in district play with the win. Sundown falls to 5-1 overall and 0-1 in district.

“You have to win every game in district and you have to win the first one to win them all,” Abernathy coach Darrell Daily said. “District is still going to be tough. We played well tonight. Defensively, we took the ball away a few times, but offensively Kole Carlisle just did a great job with a great offensive line. They did a great job on a lot of those plays where he ran deep.”

The Roughnecks threatened late in the game with a 23-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Christian Huey to Steven Quintanilla — followed up by a 12-yard score by Huey to cut the Antelopes’ lead to 49-16.

But the big scoring margin was too much to overcome for Sundown.

“I was so proud,” Daily said. “(Sundown) has been killing people with their spread offense and we have been hurt by a few teams doing it. We did a really good job and Kevin Vasquez did a heck of a job at outside linebacker. … It was just a total team effort on defense and when you take away the ball you are going to win the game and get chances on offense.”

Abernathy started the second half on a positive surge with a a 37-yard touchdown fumble return by Vasquez to put the team up 35-3 with 6:19 left in the third quarter. A Carlisle interception ensued and he later took the ball 78 yards on a touchdown pass from Antelope sophomore quarterback Bryson Daily.

Abernathy scored 21 points in the second half alone to fend off the Roughnecks.

The contest wasn’t so lopsided in the game’s opening 12 minutes — even though the Antelopes gained the initial lead.

After having to convert the ball over a couple of times, the Abernathy went to work. Daily scrambled long enough to find an open Donovan Rodriguez from seven yards out for a score to put Abernathy up 7-0 with 2:22 left in the first quarter.

Carlisle showcased his breakaway speed when given room to work with and rushed for a 63-yard touchdown 11 seconds into the second quarter.

Sundown cut the Antelopes lead to 14-3 with a 37-yard field goal from Christian Huey, but Abernathy continued to dominate the first half. Daily punched in a 2-yard score and Carlisle rushed for a 57-yard touchdown by the end of the second quarter.

The Antelopes held their lead from then on to remain undefeated.

“We played great as a team,” Carlisle said. “Every win you keep carrying on and getting better.”

NOTABLE

Entering the start of District 2-2A Division II games Friday night, there were four undefeated league opponents. Abernathy is one of the district’s few remaining undefeated teams pending other results.

PLAYER OF THE GAME

Abernathy running back Kole Carlisle had 278 total yards in the Antelopes’ win.

WHAT’S NEXT

New Deal 46, Olton 7

NEW DEAL — Nehemiah Martinez rushed for 184 yards and two touchdowns, as unbeaten New Deal topped Olton in the District 2-2A Division I opener for both teams.

With the win, the Lions improved to 6-0 overall and 1-0 in district play. Olton dropped to 3-3 overall and 0-1 in district play.

Martinez scored on a 57-yard run in the first quarter and a 44-yard run in the third quarter for New Deal. Brandon Coronado also scored twice for the Lions on passes of 43 and 32 yards thrown by Jett Whitfield, aiding New Deal to a 39-7 lead with 6:42 remaining in the third quarter.

Whitfield passed for 117 yards and rushed for 121 yards, including a 2-yard touchdown run in the second quarter.


Floydada 25, Hale Center 21

FLOYDADA — Andrew Vega scored on a 1-yard run in the third quarter as Floydada toppled previously-unbeaten Hale Center in the District 2-2A Division I opener for both teams.

Hale Center (5-1, 0-1) held a 21-18 lead with just 28 seconds remaining in the first half when Jet Cannon scored on a 40-yard pass from Brandon Castillo and Adrian Sifuentes kicked the extra point.

Vega’s 1-yard touchdown run came with 2:16 left to play in the third quarter and Miguel Pena booted the extra point that staked the Whirlwinds (3-3, 1-0) to a four-point lead that proved to be the difference.

Cannon also scored on a 35-yard pass from Castillo in the first quarter, and Garrett Johnson scored on a 10-yard run at the 3:46 mark in the first quarter as Hale Center jumped out to an early 14-0 advantage

The Olton game wasn't even close in the first half. Olton played a good 1st quarter of defense. It looked like the New Deal's coaches were experimenting with different passing schemes the first quarter and didn't run the ball much. Nehemiah Martinez is a 950 yard RB that hasn't played much more that 2 quarters all season on offense. ND put up 3 TDs in the second quarter.

We lost to Abernathy by one last year with a running back with a broken foot and a special teams mistake, our bad. We are deeper now at most positions than we were in 2013 when Stanford took us out 4 games deep into the playoffs. And I believe we have a sophomore that is as good or better running back than we had in 2013. And a QB that can move the ball also. (In the air or on the ground)

Any team in our district is capable of beating any other team if they are having an off day.

Last year is just that last year. I'm excited to see what happens this year.

Does Hale Center or Sundown bounce back from their losses ???

Will Floydada keep it close against New Deal ????

Will Abernathy continue to roll against Olton ???

And for my south Texas teams I got Shiner over Weimar

You never know....that's why the game is played. Drives me crazy '05 lost to Stratford 17-21 in semis, next week Stratford defeats Big Sandy 21-20 and there was talk had we beat Stratford we would have won the championship. '07 lost to Munday 16-17 in Region finals, they beat Sundown 47-0 and Bremond 26-6 and there is talk we would have won the championship had we not lost to Munday. You never know how one team will match up against another team. Just cause you match up with Team A doesn't mean you match up well with Team B who lost to team A.

We should have took Forsan last year but they put a drumming on us. Our offense looked like a geriatrics unit after the Stinnett game.
Im keeping my trap shut this year. All the attention is on Abernathy in our district. Let them deal with the pressures from rankings. For a change I have seen a concerted effort to keep our key players healthy and not over play them. It cost us big last year. We can loose a big lineman and pull a 270 lb sophomore of JV. We play under the radar with an average of 304 yards of rushing a game and a 107 yards of passing with only 65 points scored against us in 6 games. Putting up 257 points with the boys pulling the foot off the accelerator early in the third in all but one game. We wont stay their long but Ill take it while it lasts.
This week Floydada plays good defense. It should be an interesting game for a while till game plans are out the window.
