KGKL Pick’em Contest – Central shines at Homecoming
As a near record crowd poured into San Angelo stadium for Central's homecoming game against Midland High, the Bobcat fans were hoping for another offensive show. In the first five games of the season, the Bobcat offense has averaged almost 550 yards per game and over 55 points. And on this homecoming night, the fans were not disappointed. After a somewhat slow start that saw Central leading 14-0 at the end of the first quarter, the Bobcat offense exploded in the second quarter for 42 points. Leading 56-0 at half, Central took their foot off the gas and let Mickey Scott rest in the second half. Scott accounted for 275 yards and 5 touchdowns n the first half, so his rest was well deserved. After it was all said and done, and a couple of Midland touchdowns in garbage time, the final score was 63-21. With the win, Central moves to 6-0 overall and 4-0 in the district. They will match up against 1-4 Tascosa this Friday night to try and move to 7-0 overall.
There was another homecoming on Friday night, as the Christoval Cougars were looking to bounce back from the first loss of the season. After giving up 61 points to the TLCA Eagles the week before, Christoval's defense looked to rebound against last years district champs the Eldorado Eagles. The defense did just that, holding Eldorado to only 3 pass completions for the entire game. The Cougars defense almost caught as many Eldorado passes as the Eagles offense as they recorded 2 interceptions in route to a 30-0 win.
As for the TLCA Eagles, they continued to roll as they beat Menard 40-2. The only Bulldog score came on a TLCA 2-point conversion that was picked off and returned all the way. The Eagles now sit at 5-0 overall, and they are the only team in District 6 without a district loss.
And as many expected, the Wall Hawks were way too much for the Grape Creek Eagles. Grape Creek had no answer for the Wall offense as Wall opened up a 65-0 halftime lead. Thankfully, Coach Guy tried his best to keep the score down in the second half, and when the game mercifully came to an end, the final score was 79-6. This week Wall takes on Bangs, a game between two teams who have not lost in district play.

Every week I will post the games to pick. I will choose 3 local games. There will be a favorite and an underdog, based on Max Preps state rankings. To play, you need to submit your picks below along with your name and e-mail address (so that I can contact you when you win your free stuff). For every correct pick you get 1 point. Also. If you correctly pick an underdog to win, you get an additional 1 point. I will also choose one of the games for a tiebreaker. When you submit your picks, also give me your tiebreaker final score.
