No. 1 Bearcats sting Hornets, 73-0

October 22, 2010 by Tony Eierdam

Aledo BearcatsIt was really no surprise that the Class 4A No.1 Aledo Bearcats defeated Azle, 73-0, in a District 5-4A contest Friday night at Azle.

Aledo all-state running back Johnathan Gray had his usual productive game with 183 yards on 19 carries and four touchdowns, and a Bearcats' 40-0 lead at the half also did not raise eyebrows.

But the Bearcat offense did show another side that may give future opposing defensive coordinators some sleepless nights as junior quarterback Matt Bishop connected on long touchdown passes of 45, 58, 40 and 39 yards, the latter to new varsity receiver Willie Gibson, a sophomore who was called up to varsity this week.

October 19, 2010 by Tony Eierdam

Aledo head coach Kathy Goings one win away from 400th career victory

Paced by a match-high nine kills from middle hitter Breana Sharratt and 10 digs by libero Taylor Brown, the state-ranked No. 10 Aledo Ladycats clinched the outright District 5-4A title with a convincing 25-11, 25-9, 25-13 victory over Keller Timber Creek Tuesday night at Timber Creek.

The win raises the Ladycats overall record to 30-8 and 12-0 in district play. Aledo continues district action at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 22, at Azle. A win would give Ladycats head coach Kathy Goings her 400th career victory.

Although the Ladycats clinched the district title, the team walked off the floor in unemotional fashion. Senior captain Jordan Jacobs explained why.
