Wimberley, the only unbeaten team left in Hays County, improved its start to 3-0 Friday night with a 48-7 win at home against Smithville.

A steady production of big plays boosted the Texans, who finished the night with 520 total yards, including 349 on the ground. Running Dennis Smith played another huge game, carrying 14 times for 170 yards and three touchdowns. Quarterback Brady Lambert rushed for 95 yards in nine carries and completed eight of 14 passes for 171 yards, a touchdown and no interceptions.
