The local high school football season moves into the district portion of the schedule Friday night with a rivalry that isn’t quite a rivalry.
Hays and Lehman share a school district and a home stadium, but they haven’t shared the field in the four seasons since Lehman first played varsity football. Hays has won all four games. As anyone will tell you, the rivalry doesn’t begin until each team has won.
The two teams meet Friday night at Bob Shelton Stadium to start the District 27-4A season. Hays is 2-2, coming off a 40-34 loss last week at Hutto. Lehman is 3-1, coming off a 28-7 win at home last week against San Antonio Jefferson.
San Marcos plays at home against Corpus Christi Carroll Friday night with hopes of nabbing its first win of the season. The Rattlers are 0-3 after last week’s 43-36 loss at home against Bastrop. Carroll is 1-3.
Wimberley will put its 4-0 record on the line Friday night at home against Sealy. The Texans have scored no fewer than 33 points in any game. Sealey is 4-0, outscoring its opponents by a combined score of 190-24.
Dripping Springs opens its District 25-4A season at home Friday night against three-time defending champion Lake Travis. Dripping Springs is 2-2. Lake Travis is 3-1, having lost its 47-game winning streak earlier this month in a loss to Aledo.
San Marcos Academy, 3-1, will put its three-game winning streak on the line Friday night at Ingram/A+FCU Stadium against Louise. The San Marcos Academy defense has allowed a total of 14 points in the three wins.
(Editor’s note: The above has been corrected to say that San Marcos and Wimberley each are playing at home.)Email | Print
