BEHIND THE LENS: The Woodlands blank Spring in first-round action
By Bradley Coller
Continuing their season of dominance, Southlake Carroll has extended their season record to 14-0 overall with an incredible victory over Allen on Saturday at Apogee Stadium- home of the North Texas Mean Green! VYPE DFW was there to catch all the action on Saturday!
Although the Allen Eagles were able to jump out to a very quick and exciting 7-0 lead after scoring in the first 13 seconds of the game, it didn't take long for Kaden Anderson and the rest of the Southlake Carroll Dragons to find their groove and take their destiny into their own hands. The Dragons scored four unanswered touchdowns- one of which was a pick six as Avyonne Jones nabbed a pass and ran it back 30 yards for a score- before Allen would put up anymore points on the board as time ticked down into halftime.
The third quarter saw extremely strong defensive plays from both teams resulting in no scores through the quarter. Allen was able to score one more touchdown in the fourth quarter, but the Eagles just didn't have the same level of energy that Southlake Carroll brought to the game. The win for Southlake Carroll sends them to the State Semifinals matchup in a rematch against Duncanville.
North Shore does it the old fashioned way... they earn it?
The Mustangs pounded Atascocita 44-20 in the Class 6A DI Region III Final to go 13-1 on the season.
North Shore went old school and pounded the rock with senior Xavier Owens, who had two scores on the night.
VYPE caught up with Owens to talk about the win.
VYPE: The offense was able to lean on the run tonight. How were you and the offense able to find ways to get the run game going?
OWENS: Every time we play Atascocita we all know each other it’s always a great atmosphere. We feed off the crowd's energy and team's energy and make it work. My line kept their heads down and gave me little creases to hit and I took advantage of every opportunity. We kept our heads up and played as a team
VYPE: How much impact did your defense have on the offense's success?
OWENS: Defense showed up big time and made some big time plays. They didn’t give up on us when we didn’t answer, but we answered back when it matter. The defense kept us on our toes
Up next is Lake Travis in the State Semis on Saturday at 3 pm. The game will be held at Reeves Stadium in Round Rock, Texas. Owens will likely be there.
