La Marque Cougars seek sixth state title against Aledo

December 13, 2010 by Steve Keck

Aledo (15-0) and La Marque (12-3) are mirror images in a lot of respects. Both teams have a rich tradition of going deep into the playoffs. Aledo is seeking its third state title and second Class 4-A Division II title in a row.

La Marque has not advanced to the championship game since 2006, but is making its tenth trip overall seeking its sixth state crown. It wasn’t easy for the Cougars to get into the playoffs in tough District 24-4A. La Marque was the final playoff team in Division II to make the playoffs, and the only team still standing. Schools from District 24-4A have combined for a 14-3 record during the Class 4-A playoffs. Friendswood was knocked out by Lake Travis in the state semi-finals in Division I.

AC units, copper wiring targeted

Special to The Community News

Parker County Sheriff’s Criminal Investigations Division is investigating multiple theft reports occurring over the last month.

Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler said 24 incidents were reported involving thefts of air conditioning units and copper wire in the last 30 days.

“Copper prices have increased, therefore, increasing copper theft reports,” Fowler said.

Property owners and real estate agents reported the thefts have occurred mostly in abandoned or vacant residences, construction sites and rental/sale properties scattered throughout Parker County. Sheriff’s investigators said more than 20 cases of AC units and copper wiring thefts have been reported on the last several weeks.

State...Here We Come! Aledo wins 29-27...Set to Defend the State Title in Cowboys Stadium - Final Game Stats are Below

December 10, 2010 by Eric Keck

We are almost under way. The anthem has been played and the Bearcats are set to recieve...the path to State has been paved!

Aledo punts it away after 1 first down. Poteet takes over at their own 20.

The defense stops Poteet on their first possesion. Cunningham muffs the punt but he does recover. Aledo takes over at their own 22 yard line.

Poteet forces another punt as Aledo's offense has yet to get going. The Pirates take over at their own 28.

Poteet missed a 37 yard field goal to give the ball to Aledo on their own 20 yard line.

As the 1st quarter turns to the 2nd, Aledo is forced to punt again. The ball does land inside the 5, so if Aledo holds here they will have great field position.
