VHS Football Preview: Cedar Park at Vandegrift Monroe Stadium ~ Tonight, Sept. 8, 7:30 p.m.

Last year, Justin Moore was pushed into action as Vandegrift’s quarterback for the first time when starter Alex Fernandes was unable to play against Cedar Park. This year, Moore returns to face the Timberwolves as Vandegrift’s starter.

Last week showed promise, with Moore going 11-for-22 for 145 yards and a pair of touchdowns against a Permian defense that returned nine starters from a year ago. The rushing game was never really in gear, though, with the Vipers amassing just 28 net yards on 22 carries. That will need to get better this week for Vandegrift to have a chance of beating the Timberwolves.

Both teams are coming off disappointing losses, with Vandegrift driving nearly 700 miles round trip to Odessa and falling 28-24 to the Permian Panthers.

Vandegrift Vipers senior defensive lineman Zach Hildebrand (55) erupts in celebration on the sideline following a Vandegrift touchdown during a high school football game between the Permian Panthers and the Vandegrift Vipers at Ratliff Stadium in Odessa, Texas, on Friday, September 1, 2017.

#BuildTheRoad – LISD seeks help to reach lawmakers to build 2nd road to Vandegrift

From LISD website: Leander ISD hosted a public forum May 30 regarding the construction of a second access road onto the Vandegrift High School and Four Points Middle School campus.

At the forum, district officials addressed the history of the construction of the two campuses, safety concerns and traffic congestion in the area, along with next steps for obtaining federal approval for this project.

Four Points News

While it can be said that every game is important, late-season matchups often have significant implications for teams hoping to reach the postseason.

This week’s meeting with Hays is no different. This is the last game of the regular season for the Rebels, who come in with a 2-3 mark in district play. The Rebels need to win on Friday to keep their playoff hopes alive. A loss doesn’t necessarily doom the Rebels, but it does mean the Rebels could end up in a tie for the fourth playoff spot with Vista Ridge and Leander.   Continue reading

Vandegrift (1-4, 0-1) vs Lehman (2-3, 0-1)

Bob Shelton Stadium

4800 Jack C Hays Trail, Buda

Friday, Sept. 30 at 7:30 p.m.

Lehman is in the unenviable position of being the de-facto Vanderbilt of the SEC-like District 25-6A.

Competition is tough across the board, but Lehman struggled to win in since opening and has only one season above the .500 mark in school history. In its final two seasons in Class 4A, the Lobos were 5-15. Since moving up to 6A two years ago, the Lobos have gone 1-9 and 0-10 before starting this season 2-3. Continue reading
