From Disappointment to Enjoyment: Fairfield Soccer Friendlies a Success

Fairfield Soccer Friendlies was a huge hit. FSFC was supposed to put on a tournament the weekend on the 28th and unfortunately Lonestar Soccer Association out of Teague backed out the week of because they did not want to play each other and pay money for it. The unfortunate reality of a tournament is that you never know who will register or how many teams you will have. So, the soccer association had to disappoint every kid that had been practicing so hard to play that weekend. It was really frustrating that trophies were ordered, things were put into place, and no consideration was taken to all the back work that took place to make the tournament a reality. This was a disappointment but not unexpected as situations that had taken place in the past. FSFC gave them back half their money and ate the loss personally. The Good Lord has a great way to turn bad into good. At the moment that the word was out of a possible cancellation, Tiffany Anderson made calls, sent text, and invited as many cities to Fairfield for what became the Fairfield Soccer Friendlies on November 4th and 5th. It was a blessing in disguise as teams from Jacksonville, Crockett, Palestine, and Athens joined a few of our own Fairfield teams to create a weekend of pure fun. The weekend was full...

Bulldogs Lose Tough One at Homecoming 48-20

The Wortham Bulldogs took two big losses to open district play but were in the thick of the district race but the loss to Mount Enterprise put a serious hit on the Wortham playoff chances. The Bulldogs were dominated the entire night. Mount Enterprise fielded only 18 players and even had to forfeit the district opener to Tenaha due to lack of healthy players. The Wildcats defeated winless Overton last week to head to Wortham for an opportunity to clinch a playoff spot with a win. After a three and out for Wortham, the Bulldogs punted, and Mount Enterprise took over at the Wortham 43. Quarterback Jase Jones sprinted off on a 13-yard run and Kendre Miller finished the drive with a three-yard touchdown run. The point after was no good and the Wildcats led 6-0. Wortham took the kickoff and put together an impressive drive early in the game. Senior running back Stephon Ester had five carries on the drive, the last one for 25 yards to the Wildcat 11. Freshman Brevan Tobola passed to the near corner to a diving Ryan Mao for the 11-yard touchdown. The try for two was no good and the score was tied 6-6 midway through the first quarter. Mount Enterprise wasted no time in regaining the lead. Miller ripped off a 32-yard run inside the Bulldog 20. On second down from...
