Texas football

part of newspaper story

THE WOODLANDS — The Woodlands Christian Academy kept its unbeaten record
intact and its season alive with a 49-21 win over the Texas School for the
Deaf in the TAPPS Division III regional round Friday night at Warrior
Stadium

TWCA was efficient with its chances on offense as it was pitted against
the Rangers’ time-consuming rushing offense.

The Rangers scored on their third drive of the night. Kodi Lee capped it
with a 13-yard run.

A 7-minute, 46-second drive by the visitors made it a one-score game again
around the midway point of the second quarter. Lee capped the 13-play
drive with his second rushing touchdown.

“These kids from Texas School for the Deaf, they are gritty,” Hollas said.
“They play tough, physical football”

Russell Rohde led the Rangers with 103 yards on 26 carries. The visitors
totaled 255 yards of offense, all on the ground.

About three minutes into the final quarter, Brandon Brentham’s 21-yard
touchdown run got the Rangers back on the scoreboard and capped the
night’s scoring.
