I TMm back in Edinburg tonight for another game at Cats Stadium and for a second week in a row I will be calling a game featuring the Edinburg North Cougars.
Last week they held on for a 21-20 win over Economedes and this week they take on the La Joya Juarez-Lincoln Huskies in a battle of a pair of 30-5A teams.
Action 4 Sports will feature LIVE VIDEO of the game starting at 7 p.m. Thursday.
Scores for the game and two others also will be featured on our LIVE SCORES page.
The running attack of the Huskies has been what has carried them to a 2-1 start on the year.
This matches the best start the program has ever had as best I can tell and a win here could start to open up serious talk that they could make it into the play-offs.
As for the Cougars, they were getting used to being in post-season play until they hit the wall last season. Therefore their 3-0 start is more like business as usual for a program used to playing beyond the regular season games.
On paper the Cougars seem to have a bit of an edge.
Yet when looking into the stats of the game, it is hard to get a true picture of these teams because the teams that each of them have played have not exactly posted a great resume.
Rest assured this one will be viewed by many in the district as a game that will make a difference in someone getting in the play-offs or not, despite the fact that we are only looking at a fourth game of the year.
Enjoy the broadcast. We stream live audio and video on this one and remember it will be available on archive afterwards.GAME DAY NOTES Sept 20, 2012Edinburg Texas, Cats Stadium 7:00 Kick-offLive video and audio stream www.valleycentral.com2-1 JUAREZ LINCOLN HUSKIES "VS- 3-0 EDINBURG NORTH COUGARSCoach Tommy Garcia Coach Roy Garza OFFENSE44 (14.7) Points Scored 84 (28 ppg)626 (208.7) Rushing Yards 354 (118)118 (39.3) Passing Yards 392 (130.7)744 (248) Total Offense 746 (248.7)DEFENSE62 (20.1) Points Allowed 34 (11.3 ppg)443 (147.7) Rushing Yards Allowed 175 (58.3)571 (190.3) Passing Yards Allowed 309 (103)1014 (338) Total Offense Allowed 484 (161.3) Sept 20, 2012Edinburg Texas, Cats Stadium 7:00 Kick-offLive video and audio stream valleycentral.com2-1 JUAREZ LINCOLN HUSKIES "VS- 3-0 EDINBURG NORTH COUGARSSCHEDULE/RESULTS@ PSJA Mem.
