The Grapeland Sandies took a 14-point lead at the end of the first quarter and made it hold up in the 44-27 district win over the Wortham Bulldogs.  The Bulldogs are in a must win situation at home on homecoming Friday night against the Overton Mustangs. Senior receiver Jayce Black continues to re-write the record books.  He set the career mark for catches last week and this week added the high mark for catches in a season with 52 on the season.  He is near the yardage totals in a season and career and looks to eclipse them in the season finale.

Wortham had a beautiful drive to start their offensive drive moving from their own 31 to inside the Grapeland 15.  Facing a fourth down, senior quarterback Zach Jones connected with Jayce Black but it was short of the first down and the Sandies took over at their own nine-yard line. Grapeland went back to work and marched down the field.  Frauenberger completed four of five...
