In my preview of tonight’s game between Lavaca and Magazine, I said that the game was going to be a war…. I was not wrong. Lavaca and Magazine traded blows all night. Lavaca was methodical in their approach, while Magazine relied mostly on big plays. The Arrows received the ball first and drove down the field in 9 plays, behind the strong running of Trey Werner, Tyler Armistead, and Jimmy Hall. Hall capped off the drive with an 11 yard touchdown run.
Magazine’s first drive started off on the Lavaca 45 yard line. The Arrow defense had big stops on first and second down to create a 3rd and 8. But then on third down the Rattlers running back broke a couple of tackles to break free for a 43 yard touchdown run. The Rattlers miss the extra point and the Arrows kept the lead 7-6.

Mason Walter took the ensuing kickoff and had a nice return to the Lavaca 44 yard line. Tucker Marshall had a nice 5 yard run. Colby Clunn caught a pass for another 18 yards. Jimmy Hall ran for 35 yards to include a1 yard touchdown run to increase the lead to 14-6.
The following kickoff was returned for a Magazine touchdown. Magazine went for 2 and did not convert. Lavaca maintained the lead 14-12.
Trey Werner returned the kickoff to the Lavaca 39 yard line and the Arrows were back in business again. The Arrows offense put together 2 first downs and then, Hall hit Mason Walter on a 35 yard touchdown strike. Extra point was just wide. Arrows up 20-12.
Arrows Kicked off out of bounds and the Rattler were set up on a short field. Magazine took 10 plays to move the ball down the field for a touchdown. Two point conversion was no good and the Arrows were able to keep the lead.

Tucker Marshall returned the ball to the 46 yard line. Magazine bowed up and had the arrows at 4th and 4 from the Magazine 48 yard line. The Arrows punt team came out for the first time of the night. However, it was a fake punt. Alex Dugan ran the ball for the first down and kept the drive alive. Eight plays later Hall found Werner for a touchdown to take a 26-18 lead into halftime.
Magazine took the opening kickoff of the second half to the Lavaca 45 yard line. They march the ball in to the end zone on 5 plays. The 2 point conversion was no good again making it a 2 point game.

Tyler Armistead returned the kickoff to the 34 yard line. Seven plays later Hall hit Alex Dugan for 45 yards and a touchdown. Arrows then went for 2 and converted to stretch the lead to 34-24. This would be the final score of the game.
Arrows defense took over the game at this point. With an unsportsmanlike penalty against the rattlers on the previous play the Arrows kicked off from mid field and Magazine took over on their own 25 yard line. With time of the essence Magazine started to throw the ball, something that they hadn’t done all night. Trey Werner, Colby Clunn, and Kaw-Liga Brewer had interceptions in the forth quarter.

This was a great win for the Arrows. Coach Schlinker, had this to say about the Arrows performance, “I am so proud of our kids. The Offense played great tonight. The Defense stumbled some in the first half but rose up int the second. Jimmy played huge for us. Very proud of O-line played. Our kids did a great job of keeping their composure.”
