Clifton falls to Maypearl in overtime

By Brett Voss

Often times, Texas high school football coaches aren’t sure just how difficult their schedules might be until the season starts to take shape. Regardless, Clifton’s third-year head coach Chuck Caniford always does his best to build a difficult non-district schedule to make his Cubs battle-tested by the time district play begins. But this season’s schedule has proven to be even more difficult than expected.

Bosque County still struggling

By Brett Voss

To say wins have been hard to come by for Bosque County high school football teams would be an understatement. Three weeks into the season, the eight area schools have combined to post eight total victories. Only Valley Mills and Morgan own winning records, and two teams -- Clifton and Cranfills Gap -- will enter this week’s slate of games looking for their first win of the season. Combined, Bosque County teams have posted an 8-16 win-loss record.

Comeback

By Brett Voss

Just when it started looking like another game, if not the entire season, was slipping away, the Meridian Yellowjackets found the magic they were looking for to carry them through the 2016 season. On the strength of three big plays on offense and forcing three turnovers on defense, the Jackets came from behind not once, but twice to slip by the Riesel Indians in dramatic fashion, 24-20, last Friday night.

By Brett Voss

Jackets drop opener at Waco Reicher

By Brett Voss

Certainly, it wasn’t the start to the 2016 Texas high school football season they had hoped to achieve. After opening last season with four consecutive victories for the first time in more than a decade, the Meridian Yellowjackets found out just how tough their non-district schedule loaded with new opponents could be as the Waco Reicher Catholic Cougars rolled to an impressive 48-0 win over the Jackets last Friday night.

Cubs stumble in opener at Hillsboro

By Brett Voss

So far this season, weather has played havoc with the Clifton Cubs. And while no one was making any excuses following last Friday night’s season opener in Hillsboro, inclement weather has impacted two of the three times the Cubs have stepped on the field this season. After a 30-minute rain delay, Clifton and Hillsboro slugged it out in a mistake-filled game. Although the defense got the job done, the Clifton Cubs could not overcome three crucial turnovers as Hillsboro came from behind to slip by Clifton, 13-6, after a weather delay last Friday night.

Jackets travel to DeLeon for scrimmage

By Brett Voss & Justin Green

Although the Meridian Yellowjackets caught a break from the record- setting heat wave for their first scrimmage last Friday at Jacket Stadium, they had to squeeze it in with thunderstorms and lightning around the county. Meridian’s first test of the season came against Santo, a 2015 playoff team picked to place second in District 8-2A, Divison II behind state- semifinalist Muenster, the team that eliminated the Jackets in a bi-district playoff matchup.
