BEAUMONT, Texas — After the UIL delayed the start of the regular season by five weeks due to COVID-19, we are another step closer for the state's two largest classifications and TAPPS to get underway.
Until then, some of our local squads got in some work Thursday night before the start of the regular season next week.
Nederland hosted Port Arthur-Memorial on their new turf while West Brook welcomed PN-G.
The Bulldogs routed the Titans 17-13, behind a strong quarterback performance by Rene Cunningham, who finished the game with two touchdowns.
The Bulldogs open their season next week at Huntsville (9/25) while the Titans travel to Port Neches-Groves to start regular season play.
In other action, West Brook won their scrimmage over PN-G, 28-10.
The Bruins trailed 10-0 early in the second quarter, then rattled off 28 straight points to win in three quarters of play.
The Bruins will have one final tune up (Beaumont United) before opening their season on the road against Tomball Memorial on Friday, October 2, while the Indians host Port Arthur-Memorial to start their season.
