After last Friday’s gut-wrenching loss at home to Waco Midway, Belton could not wait to get back on the field to get the bad taste out of its mouth, and the Tigers were more than willing to take the field for a Thursday night game at Leo Buckley Stadium against Shoemaker.
Billy White Jr. did not fully understand what he was witnessing.
Shoemaker was close once again to capturing its first victory last week under first-year head coach Johnnie Fair, but ultimately fell in a last-second 16-13 defeat to Killeen.
For Ellison middle blocker Symone Thomas, playing a gritty five-set match is exhausting.
Shoemaker graduate Jameill Showers has had to continuously adjust to the many different situations his football career has presented him, and he has undertaken yet another change — a positional change — with the Dallas Cowboys.
Killeen High had to scratch and claw throughout their District 8-6A game against Shoemaker on Thursday night to get into the end zone, and it took nearly the entire 48 minutes in order to do so.
Tonight, two eerily similar football teams will square off against one another on the gridiron.
The Patterson 8B Team defeated Union Grove 20-6 on Tuesday night, upping Patterson’s record to 3-0. on the season and still undefeated. Freddie Williams started the game out with some huge runs on the first drive ending it with a touchdown run by Christian Cardenas. This put the Cavaliers up 6-0 early in the game. The next time Patterson got the ball, it drove the length of the field and scored. Jermel Barkley led this drive with some key third-down conversions and ended it with a touchdown run.
Jaggar Gibson led the Patterson 7B Cavs defense with eight tackles, including two sacks in a 19-12 win over Union Grove.
Tonight at Leo Buckley Stadium, Harker Heights and Shoemaker will take the field against one another, but from two different ends of the spectrum.

COPPERAS COVE — One week after Copperas Cove was dominated in the second half, the Bulldawgs returned the favor.
The host Copperas Cove Lady Bulldawgs upped their District 8-6A record to 5-1 with a 3-1 victory over Shoemaker (25-18, 25-21, 25-27, 25-21) on Friday.
The stakes are high.
Shoemaker took Ellison right down to the wire Friday in its District 8-6A opener at Leo Buckley Stadium, but it simply was not to be for the Grey Wolves.
