Wildcats Destroy Weimar at Homecoming
Special to the Yorktown News-View
Homecoming is a Texas tradition, and in Yorktown, it consists of week’s worth of spirit events from dressing in spirit clothes, the wearing of mums and garters, and culminating with a Friday night football game with stands filled with alumni, family, classmates, and friends. Although the Wildcats were not predicted to win against Weimar, the players and coaches remained confident and believed that they could.
Junior, Drew Alexander stated, “We had a great week of practice, I thought we could beat Weimar, but regardless I can always expect my teammates to give it their all.”
At the start of the game, the Wildcats held Weimar to three and out on the first drive, and then immediately put points on the board their opening play with a Kalen Barefield 87-yard touchdown run. Yorktown forced Weimar to another three and out on their next possession and then scored when Alexander connected with Sam Speed on a 40-yard touchdown pass on Yorktown’s second play of the game. Although they jumped off to a great start, that would be the last time Yorktown would score in the first half.
Weimar rebounded and took control of the game, closing out the second quarter with two touchdowns to take the lead at halftime, 15-12.
