In a trade-out with Tigers Hungry For Bear Steak The renewal of a rivalry for Malakoff and a major show- down for Trinidad top the gridiron menu for this area this week. The Tigers travel to Brownsboro to rekindle their feud with the Bears as play continues in 13-AA. Malakoff no longer wears the mantel of the unbeaten after its loss to Wills Point last week, but the Bears have yet to win in con- ference warfare. Brownsboro did use a bit of skullduggery to fend off the Mabank Panthers last week, shutting down the potent Green Machine to preserve a scoreless deadlock. Fullback Noah Sheffield led the charge for Brownsboro with 41 yards on 15 carries, as the Bears could get only 93 yards rush- Malakoff is averaging 222 yards rushing per game and 24 more yards passing, while allowing an average of 193 yards rushing and 25 passing. Of course, Wills Point is to blame for much of that, as the Van Zandt County Tigers rolled up 383 yards overland last week...just short ot the total for the first three op. ponents put together. Chuck Chapman continued his pace as the team's top rusher. The mulit-talented back now has 515 yards on lll carries for a 4.6 average. Wes Holt is closing in, as he led Malakoff in ground gains against Wills point with 101 yards on 22 trips, his best night of the season. Holt now has 213 yards on 68 carries for a 3.1 average. ing and 11 ore through the::: air. Mabank got 275 yards overland, despite it inability to crack the scoreboard. The Bruins' offense hasn't found a steady spark thus far, and Malakoff may well cap- italize on that fact to get back into the win column..and the loop title chase, should Wills Point lose to Kaufman this week. lt,.)ld did,.asert tn]mclf a the team's scoring leader. He now has six touchdowns for 24 points, while placekicker Clint Cross has 20 points on three field goals and 11 PAT kicks.
