Bulldogs’ opportunity good against Warriors

Brady’s Bulldogs will probably have their last good chance of getting a football victory Friday (tonight) in Ingram since their final game of the season is the following week against district-leading Wimberley. The Ingram squad enters the contest with a 3-5 record overall and 0-3 (like Brady) in district competition. The Warriors’ wins have been over Junction, San Saba and Mason. Non-district losses were to Comfort and Blanco. In league play they lost to Burnet, 42-6, Wimberley, 41-0, and Llano, 42-20. “We’ve had good workouts this week. The kids are up, and that’s a positive sign,” assistant head coach Todd Bandy said Wednesday morning. He was subbing for head coach Davy DuBose, who was laid up with a sore back. He is expected to be back for the game against Ingram. “We’ve been trying to keep their spirits high and we’re continuing to go over the basic drills, attempting to get them correct,” Bandy explained. Center/defensive end Fidel Huerta is questionable for the game because of a strained knee while Johnny Menefield and sophomore WR/OLB Lance Owens are out. “Menefield broke a toe in the Burnet game and Owens had shoulder surgery last week in San Antonio. Lance may be out of athletics for up to six months,” Bandy said. Also on the sidelines is reserve back Abraham Cortez. Otherwise the Bulldogs are in good shape for their annual battle with the Warriors. This is their first trip to Ingram, which is located just outside of Kerrville. Game time is 7:30 p.m. Ingram Tom Moore will be led by sophomore QB Robert Taylor, who DuBose says, “throws the ball well.” Their top running back is junior tailback/linebacker Kabu Barkoh, a big ball carrier. “They played Wimberley tough although the Texans won,” DuBose said earlier in the week. “We’ve got to start playing well in the third quarter. We haven’t played well in that quarter well all season. “We have been concentrating on that aspect all this week,” he said.
