ATH: Tivy yes; OLH yes; Ingram no

From the Kerrville Daily Times

Tivy takes control

SAN ANTONIO — Just like the Barbarians did to ancient Rome, the Tivy High School football team invaded San Antonio and rolled on through with a 49-28 drubbing of Class 5A District 26 front-runner Roosevelt on Friday night at Comalander Stadium.

Behind almost 400 yards of total offense and seven touchdowns from Tivy senior quarterback Colton Palmer, the Antlers cruised past a much larger Rough Riders squad that came into this season with high expectations.

“We’re excited as can be,” Tivy coach Mark Smith said. “To come here, play a Northeast school and play the way we did, it’s a big plus for us. It gives us a starting point.”

Palmer helped power the Antlers’ offense by completing an almost perfect 29-of-32 night, throwing for 321 yards and 4 touchdowns. He also ran for two scores and caught another.

The rest is here (although after a few days these stories get hidden behind an obnoxious, and terribly passe, registration wall):

The Our Lady of the Hills football team opened the season in grand style, putting the mercy rule on San Antonio Winston Friday night, 45-0.

Brockton Bushong threw for two touchdowns and ran for two more. He gained a total of 118 yards in the air and on the ground combined.

J.J. Reyna also ran for a touchdown for the Hawks, and gained a total of 91 all-purpose yards.

Will Gregory caught both of Bushong’s touchdown passes.

The game ended at halftime because of the score.

Ingram falls again

INGRAM — Ingram Tom Moore couldn’t get the proverbial monkey off its back Friday as it lost to Natalia, 31-8, to extend its losing streak to 25 games.

The Warriors made things hard on themselves most of the game, with many mistakes killing their drives and keeping Natalia’s alive.

“You can’t fix 24 losses in a row just by showing up,” said first-year Warriors coach Tim Clarkson.

That’s not to say the Warriors didn’t make things interesting, though.

Things got ugly early, as Natalia’s R.J. Rodriguez tested the Ingram secondary on the third play of the game. He found receiver Josiah Ramsey down the sideline for a 64-yard score.

The rest is here:
