About 30 miles south of Lakeville, Minnesota, lies the Montgomery National Golf Club, featuring eight water hazards (penalty areas) and tree-lined fairways. It also features a yellow submarine, a guitar-shaped bunker that is 50 yards long and a photo of the Fab Four on the wall behind the pro shop counter.
The Clear Springs Chargers' quick-strike offense out-classed Brazoswood in a 52-21 win, the Friendswood Mustangs quickly buried Goose Creek Memorial on their way to a 62-0 rout, and the Houston Texans fell flat on the road against the NFL-leading Arizona Cardinals, who won 31-5.
Even with the rain delay, sluggish start, bad penalties, inconvenient turnovers and overtime, it wasn’t enough to stop the Houston Cougars (6-1, 4-0 American) as they found a way to survive against the East Carolina Pirates (3-4, 1-2 American) 31-24 in overtime Saturday at TDECU Stadium.
