VYPE U: College Park Football Powers Past Kingwood
Saturday afternoon VYPE U was on hand as The Woodlands College Park Football team drew hundreds of fans to Woodforest Stadium for their first home game of the season. Supporters decked out in pink for "Pink Out Night" and seniors and their families celebrated "Senior Night". The Cavaliers entered with a 3-1 record while the Kingwood Mustangs entered with an 0-4 record for the season.
The Cavaliers came out electric in the first quarter. Junior Quarterback, Ty Buckmon, was able to make contact with junior Alex Brigman twice to secure two touchdowns. The first quarter concluded with the Cavaliers keeping the Mustang scoreless (12-0).
Dylon DeAngelo was able to start the second quarter off by scoring on a 3-yard run. He was then followed by Juniors Cody Mladenka (12 yards) and Alex Brigman (25 yards) who continued the touchdown streak. Soon after, the Mustangs were not able to be stopped by the College Park Defense during a 4th down and were able to get their first points of the game. The Cavaliers were able to close out the first half of the game with a comfortable 34-7 lead over the Mustangs.
The members of the College Park Defense, Dylan Hazen (Wake Forest Commit), Chance Jackson, Andrew Edmonson, and Marcus Scott, helped paved the way to keep Kingwood scoreless throughout the 3rd quarter. A Kingwood turnover forced by Joseph Golden at the end of the quarter kept the score at 34-7.
With 1:33 remaining, the Cavaliers were able to add an additional touchdown to the board. The final score of the game was 41-7. The Cavaliers effort and strong performance is only the beginning for them this season.
College Park Football is entering a bye week but will be back at Woodforest Stadium on October 30th for their homecoming game against Grand Oaks. They will then face the bulk of their district competitors in Willis, Oak Ridge, and The Woodlands. This talented team is hoping to make a playoff run this season, and their performance on Saturday is evidence that they can do so.
