Sterling still snakebit Comedy of errors pushes Rangers to 18th straight loss BY WES WALKER email@example.com
A comedy of special teams errors propelled the Clear Lake Falcons over the Sterling Rangers 33-22 in a non-district football game Friday night at Stallworth Stadium. Coach Troy Aduddell has yet to pick up his first win as the Rangers’ coach and it was his former team that handed the Rangers their 18th consecutive loss. Aduddell’s son, Travis, caught two passes for 10 yards as the Falcons’ tight end won bragging rights in the Aduddell household with their victory. Both teams made numerous special team mistakes as Sterling had three punts blocked with two being returned for Falcon touchdowns. Sterling also blocked a punt and recovered a fumbled snap on another punt which led to two Ranger scores. Both teams combined for eight touchdowns but only one extra point was converted. Clear Lake had a PAT blocked, fumbled

another snap on a field goal attempt, and Sterling muffed a snap on one of its extra-point attempts. Five other PAT attempts failed as well. The Rangers also fumbled a kickoff attempt on a reverse play that went awry. The Falcons jumped out to a first-quarter lead thanks to a little help from the Rangers as a blocked punt led to a 27-yard field goal by Clear Lake’s Jason Weed. The 3-0 lead quickly became 9-0 as the Falcons blocked another Ranger punt on their next
possession and this time Clear Lake sophomore linebacker Nathan Fox picked it up and ran it back 20 yards for a touchdown. A short kickoff and interference penalty on the Falcons set up Sterling with a short field at the 44yard line. They ran off five straight running plays gaining 19 yards down to the 25-yard line. A 15yard personal foul penalty on the Falcons pushed the ball to the 10-yard line but the Rangers had to settle for an Austin Purswell 28yard field goal when the Falcons forced a third
down incomplete pass by Archie Moyers to make the score 9-3 with 9:35 left in the second quarter. It was the Rangers’ turn to take advantage of misfortune this time as Clear Lake fumbled its punt attempt on its next possession, giving the Rangers the ball at the Falcon 5yard line. Elijah Chenier ran it over from the 3-yard line tie the game at 9-9. The Rangers Marquis Mitchell, senior cornerback, stopped the next Falcon drive as he made a SEE STERLING • PAGE 2B
BY TODD HVEEM CROSBY – If Austin Walter is not the best running back in the state of Texas, there is a very short line in front of him. The 5-foot-6, 170-pound Walter ran over, around and through the Barbers Hill Eagles on Friday night as the Cougars rallied from a 17-7 halftime deficit to stun the visitors 35-17 in a rainy District 19-4A football game at Cougar Stadium. The junior scat back, who looks an awful lot like former Lamar Consolidated standout Jaquizz Rodgers (now with the Atlanta Falcons), finished the game with 258 yards rushing on 18 carries and three touchdowns. He also turned a throwback screen pass into a 62yard touchdown as he weaved in and out of five potential Barbers Hill tacklers to put Crosby ahead for good, 21-17, with 2:40 left in the third quarter. “When it started to rain (in the third quarter), at first I was a little worried,’’ said Walter, who has now put together back-to-back 200-yard rushing games and has rushed for just under 600 yards in the first
three games of the season. “I thought the ball would be slippery, but it wasn’t that bad.’’ It was for Barbers Hill. The Eagles looked like they were going to add to their 17-7 lead after they marched past midfield on their opening drive of the second half. But Crosby pounced on a fumble at its own 38 with 10 minutes left in the third quarter and the game totally changed. The Cougars quickly marched 62 yards behind the running of Aston and Austin Walter to cut the lead to 17-14. Aston Walter, who passed for more than 100 yards, capped off the drive with an 11-yard quarterback draw with 7:21 left in the third quarter. “We pretty much had to put the first half behind us,’’ Austin Walter said. “We knew we could come back. We have been in this position so many times before. We just had to come out and get it done.’’ Barbers Hill marched to the Crosby 35 on its next possession, but a holding penalty and a shanked 7yard punt gave the Cougars the ball back at their own 37 and set the stage for SEE COOGS • PAGE 2B
