Boerne Geneva 41,
Bay Area Christian 0
Bay Area Christian’s TAPPS playoff run came to an abrupt end Friday night with a 41-0 first-round loss to Boerne Geneva.
“We just struggled on offense tonight, but the defense kept scrapping and holding on and keeping us in it,” Bay Area Christian head coach Les Rainey said. “We missed a few plays that maybe would have made things closer, but I’m proud of these kids and just proud of our seniors to get us back in the playoffs.”
The Broncos (6-5) trailed 21-0 at halftime, but gave up no more than 14 points in a single quarter in the loss.
Christian McDonough had a team-high seven tackles for Bay Area, and teammate Peyton Grigsby recorded five tackles.
Collin Scheuring accounted for 90 of the Broncos’ 150 yards of offense.
Geneva (10-1) quarterback Will Langenbahn ran for three touchdowns and threw for another score to lead the Eagles.
The postseason berth was the first in three years for the Broncos (6-5).
“Good things are happening for us, we just came up on the short end of the stick tonight,” Rainey said. “Back in the playoffs, that’s something we want to build on.”
Tioga 68, High Island 32
High Island saw an early playoff lead evaporate Friday, as the Cardinals fell behind before halftime and were unable to recover in a 68-32 loss to the Tioga Bulldogs in the opening round of the 6-man postseason.
High Island (7-3) held a 12-8 lead after the first quarter before the Tioga (9-1) offense exploded for 22 points in the second and 30 points in the third to take a commanding 60-26 advantage heading into the final frame.
