After a nearly scoreless first half, the Teague Lions saw a last-ditch comeback fall from their grasp in a slippery 29-14 road loss to New Waverly Friday night. Under gloomy skies and spotty rain showers, New Waverly’s real grass field quickly turned to sludge, setting a dramatic stage to start the game. Both teams slung nothing but mud for much of the first half until the home team scored with six minutes left on the clock, then secured a two-point conversion for an 8-0 lead.
The Lions were “On the Hunt” for a first-game win Friday night, Aug. 26, under new head coach Zach Linscomb but fell just short in a back-and-forth 38-29 battle against the Rockdale.
Puzzles are not easy and neither is putting together a football team. After summer workouts and the first week of fall camp, finding the right places for the players on the team is the next step in the puzzle.
It all started 10 years ago for first year coach Melissa Padgett and it has since become a tradition every year.
Summer workouts continue for the Teague Lions. Coach Zach Linscomb and his staff are utilizing a threeweek on, one-week on regimen. Linscomb said he has been averaging 75 athletes at the workouts. The first scrimmage of the season is fast-approaching, when Hillsboro visits Lion Stadium on Thursday, Aug. 11.
