Jim Zimmermann December 16, 20169:35 pm

This is a back yard brawl so far. Neither team is backing down. The Wildcats want it just as much as the Bearcats. But, I say it again. The Aledo coaching staff is one of the best, if not the best in Texas at making halftime adjustments. Both teams defense are strong and athletic. Aledo’s offense is not hitting on all cylinders so lets see how Aledo plays this half. Wildcats will have the ball to start the 3rd qtr.

Just finished the national anthem and the teams are lining up to run on the field

Jim Zimmermann December 16, 20167:52 pm

As you can imagine, both sides are packed. We are just under 14 minutes till kick off

Jim Zimmermann December 16, 20167:50 pm

Last week Aledo freshman
running back Jase McClellan “announced his presence with authority” on the
Bearcat offense. The freshman had 225 yards rushing on 30 carries and 1
touchdown. Jase had 10 straight carries on Aledo’s 1st drive of the
4th quarter that sealed the game for the Bearcats.

Jim Zimmermann December 16, 20167:50 pm

Aledo’s defense isn’t too
bad either. Over 15 games they are allowing 18 per game but the Bearcat offense
is averaging an incredible 57 points a game. You can give up a little more when
you score a lot more. The defensive stats are mind blowing! 51 sacks with 20
interceptions. The defense played a huge part in last week’s win. Although
Aledo had a slim 21-14 lead at halftime, they shut Poteet out in the 2nd
half and the offense scored 17 points.

Jim Zimmermann December 16, 20167:49 pm

The Pirates come in
riding a 13-game winning streak. Their defense is one of the best in the state.
During the streak, they had a stretch of 11 straight games of not giving up
more than 7 points. For the year, they have only allowed and impressive 122 points,
(8 per game) coming into tonight’s game. Their offense is averaging 38 per
game.

Jim Zimmermann December 16, 20167:49 pm

Two weeks ago, they
played Boswell at AT&T Stadium. Last week they played Poteet at the Star in
Frisco and tonight they are right back here at AT&T Stadium.

Jim Zimmermann December 16, 20167:48 pm

The Bearcats beat a good
Mesquite Poteet team in a game that was closer than the 38-14 win for Aledo.
The Bearcats have been fortunate in regards of not having to travel very much
in the playoffs.

Jim Zimmermann December 16, 20167:47 pm

Tonight’s opponent is the
Calallen Wildcats from Corpus Christi. The Pirates had a battle on their hands
last week to get here tonight. They squeaked out a 1- point win over College
Station 31-30 when College Station went for the win on a 2- point conversion
that failed.

Jim Zimmermann December 16, 20167:46 pm
