Weather hampered several local scrimmages Friday night.
Some of them got completed, some did not.
Both the West Orange-Stark Mustangs and the Bridge City Cardinals were impressive in their tilts.
The Mustangs nipped the Bulldogs two touchdowns to one in a defensive slugfest.
The Mustangs led 2-0 at one time, scoring on a long interception return and a deep touchdown pass. The Bulldogs got their score on a long interception return
The Cardinals hosted Lumberton at Larry Ward Stadium and held the Raiders out of the end zone.
The Cardinals moved the ball well on offense and scored twice on long scoring passes.
In Little Cypress-Mauriceville, the Battlin’ Bears never saw the ball on offense as lihtning and heavy rain created havoc in their scrimmage against Goose Creek Memorial.
Goose Creek Memorial ran one series and the Bear defense came up with a superb defensive stand. However, lightning strikes erupted and caused a delay.
The two teams waited until 8 p.m. but the weather never let up. The two will try it again today at 9 a.m. at Baytown’s Stallworth Stadium.
Over in Vidor, the Vidor Pirates hosted the Orangefield Bobcats and Liberty Panthers. However, bad weather canceled the three-way scrimmage about halfway through it.
Vidor picked up a pair of offensive touchdowns against Liberty, scoring twice in running just nine plays.
Orangefield did not score when they faced the Vidor defense in part of the controlled part of the scrimmage. The Bobcat defense did play well in a brief stint, holding Liberty out of the end zone.
