The Cedar Hill Longhorns began their playoff run at Hewitt Midway near Waco defeating the Copperas Cove Bulldawgs 35-28. The ‘Horns came out very strong, running the score to 35-7 late in 3rd quarter. The ‘Dawgs showed some fight in the 4th quarter,, scoring 3 unanswered touchdowns and getting a failed onside kick away from having a shot for a tie in the final minutes. Copperas Cove deserves credit for the comeback, but the bottom line is that Cedar Hill was, by far, the superior team.They have so many ways to hurt you that, I‘m guessing, they will go as far as their execution takes them. When they play their best football they are very hard to beat.
I’m heading home to Reno in a few hours I’m very excited to spend a few days with my wife, daughter, granddaughter and dogs after spending 4 months living in motels. I will be returning to Texas on Thanksgiving, in time for the second round. All ten of the playoff teams I’ve followed this year survived to the 2nd round, so I have some decisions to make about where to go. Make suggestions or check back later in the week if you want to know where I’ll be.
