The freshman white team opened their home schedule versus the Bastrop Bears and it was no picnic for the Bears as they fell 28-6. The White Rattlers won the toss and never looked back, they scored first on a Brandon Limon 5-yard touchdown run with 2:33 left in the first quarter. The Rattlers held the ball for over seven minutes in the long opening scoring drive. The PAT conversion run by Gaige Musick was no good.
However, Jared Vandeoff connected with John Ramirez on a 65-yard touchdown pass to tie the game on their first offensive play from scrimmage for the Bears to tie the game 6-6.
The first quarter would end on an Aubrey Oswalt 38-yard punt to give the Bears possession to start the second quarter against a tough Rattler defense.
