The Mountaineers Dominate the Mustangs

The Santa Anna Mountaineers came ready to play Friday night in Brookesmith, Texas with a convincing 54-0 victory which ended at halftime. The Mountaineers were just too athletic for the Mustangs, scoring at will.

Most of the starters scored a touchdown with the backups getting many touches as well.

Coach Cameron Norris said, “We will enjoy this win, but we know that we must get better every week if we want to advance into the playoffs this year. Easy wins are great, but challenging games (win or lose) are where you learn and get better.”

Their next opponent will be the very tough Rochelle Hornets in Rochelle on Friday, September 19 at 7:30.

The Mountaineers Show Great Fortitude in Victory

The Mountaineers came out running the ball well Friday night against the Mullin Bulldogs. In a tight game of 6-14, the Mountaineers were ready to tie the game, but fumbled the ball on the one yard line and Mullin returned it 79 yards for a TD making the score 6-22 at half. Giving up 16 points in the third quarter to Mullin’s great offense brought the score to 20-38 going into the fourth quarter. The Mountaineers came together and shut out the Bulldogs in the fourth quarter and scored 24 unanswered points for an amazing comeback win!

The Mountaineers travel to Brookesmith next Friday night and play at 7:30. We hope to see everyone there.

Santa Anna Mountaineers Fall in Opener to the Meadow Broncos

Four first quarter turnovers, plus two others, led to a 14-46 loss to a very physical Meadow Bronco football team in the Zephyr Bonanza Classic. A lack of continuous blocking, plus turnovers, resulted in the Mountaineers playing defense much of the night.

Two missed early opportunities to score took away any chance the Mountaineers had of catching the Broncos. It seemed that the Mountaineers could never catch their second wind.

Coach Norris felt that the effort wasn’t bad, they just didn’t finish the plays on either side of the ball. He said, “We will take this game and learn a lot from it”.

The Mountaineers were led by Sophomore Jacob Herrod rushing for 100 yards and a touchdown. He also ran a kickoff back for another touchdown. The leading tackler for the Mountaineers was also Jacob Herrod with 13 tackles and one fumble recovery. Colby Nelson added eight solo tackles.

Next for the young Mountaineers will be the very talented Mullin Bulldogs at 7:30 Friday in Santa Anna.

Blood drive in Coleman on September 4

News Release
All blood types needed

A community blood drive will be held at the Senior Citizens Center in Coleman on Thursday, September 4. The Meek Blood Center bloodmobile will accept donations from 1:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. A record thirty five donors participated in the blood drive that took place on July 10.

“We are asking donors to please remember that the need for blood is constant. Even the regular of blood donors get busy in the summer with vacations and other activities and forget to donate blood. Blood donation only takes about an hour, and that hour could give someone else a lifetime,” said Frances Baker, donor recruiter for Meek Blood Center.

Changes have been made to streamline the screening process and some previous restrictions regarding medical conditions and medications have been lifted. Those who have eligibility questions can speak with the Meek Blood Center supervisor at 325-670-2880.

Each donor will receive a T-shirt and a complimentary total cholesterol test.
