Sitting at 1-1 with two games to go, the Brazos Cougars embark on an important road trip to Karnes County where they’ll face the Kenedy Lions, who sit at 0-2.
The visitors are fresh off a 35-6 loss at home to the second-place Weimar Wildcats, although Brazos head coach Ryan Roecker said the final score was a little deceptive with scoring opportunities left on the field.
He’ll rally his troops to hit the road and put the pressure on the host Lions from the minute they get off the bus to try and get their potent offensive attack back on track after it averaged 30 points per game over the last three leading up to last week’s defeat.
The Cougars picked up their first win in District 15-2A in the final game of that three-week stretch, 18-13, after a similarly long road trip to play the Yorktown Wildcats.
Kenedy comes in after three weeks of district play owning a 0-2 record with a bye in between a 40-6 loss to Weimar Oct. 11, and a 52-7 loss to the first-place Shiner Comanches last week. Earlier in the season, the Lions rattled off a trio of wins where they scored at least 49 points and allowed at most 13 points (Louise, 49-6; Pettus, 51-12; Runge, 57-13) before beating Woodsboro, 61-8, in their pre-district finale.
The slot-T offense will have its work cut out for itself although the Brazos defense has allowed the second-fewest points to district opponents (48) with only Shiner allowing less (21).
Yorktown (0-2) will travel to Weimar (2-1) for the other District 15 action of this week, Nov. 1.
