Year in Review — A look back at Parker County sports in 2011

WEATHERFORD —  

Editor's Note: This is the final of a five-part series looking back at the notable events of 2011 for Parker County sports.

 

SEPTEMBER

Sept. 4 - The Weatherford Roos, after a successful start to the season, had hoped to keep their momentum on track Friday, taking the field against neighboring rival Aledo. Unfortunately, there happened to be a train on the track — and the train, in this instance the Bearcats, was still a bit angry from being derailed the week before.

After four carries, spanning three possessions, Aledo’s Johnathan Gray had chewed  up 172 yards of Kangaroo Stadium turf, putting two touchdowns on the scoreboard. The Roos fought gamely for the balance of the contest, but Aledo’s mission prevailed as they won the non-district match 50-7.

Sept. 9 - The top junior college baseball players from New Mexico and Texas competed in the annual Fuddruckers Junior College All-Star Weekend at Baylor Ballpark.

Representing Weatherford College were Peter Cuomo and Brandon Vinyard, who participated in the prestigious event. Cuomo was a sophomore shortstop from Leander, and Vinyard was a sophomore outfielder from Euless Trinity.

Sept. 11 - In a defensive battle, where Millsap was defending, among other things,  Homecoming Night, the Bulldogs were able to score an early touchdown while shutting down the opponent’s offense to secure a 7-0 win over the DeLeon Bearcats in a non-district game.

Running back Cody Savage punched in a first-quarter TD for the Bulldogs, the only scoring Millsap would need on the night. Led by Nick Davila’s 14 tackles, the Millsap defense also forced three turnovers, recovering a fumble and recording picks by Russell Turner and Chris Valdez.

Sept. 11 - The hype of the Class 4A rematch between the Aledo Bearcats and the Lake Travis Cavaliers preceded itself, with tickets for Friday’s game selling out days before the actual contest.
