The Weekend Rewind by Austin Staton and Matt Malatesta
Klein Oak Knocks Off Dekaney: After falling to North Shore to close out the non-district slate, Klein Oak quarterback Connor McQueen has reeled off three-straight wins to open district play including a dominant performance over Dekaney last weekend. The Wildcats had been dominant all season but the Panthers asserted themselves as one of the elite teams in the Houston area with a 38-6 win over Dekaney.
Port Arthur Memorial Notches Road Win: North Shore isn’t familiar with losing on their home turf. In a defensive battle trailing 7-0 in the third quarter, the Titans capitalized on a pair of touchdown runs from Terrence Singleton and Nathan Holmes to drop the Mustangs, 14-7. The win improved P.A. Memorial to 6-0 on the season for the first time in program history.
Houston Boys: Scoop and score did Strake Jesuit's David King, a defensive tackle at Oklahoma against the Texas Longhorns in the Red River Classic. Stanford's Andrew Luck (Stratford) continues to build his case for the Heisman and LSU's Michael Brockers (Chavez) dominated against Florida. Cy-Ridge's Russell Shepard also has 58 yards receiving against the Gators. Chomp, Chomp. Former Hightower linebacker Phillip Steward was the Conference USA Defensive Player of the Week for the undefeated Houston Cougars this week.
October Baseball: While former Klein standout David Murphy has the Rangers just three games away from a return trip to the World Series, the most impressive local products in the postseason were without question two members of the Diamondbacks. Bellaire’s Chris Young and The Woodlands’ Paul Goldschmidt both put up impressive numbers, despite the D-backs’ elimination in the NLDS.
Goldschmidt hit a team-high .438 in the NLDS driving in six runs while belting two home runs. His five RBI in game three of the NLDS tied a postseason franchise record and he became only the third rookie to rip a postseason grand slam in MLB history. Young hit .389 for Arizona and drove in four runs behind his three home runs and seven total hits in the series.
