FOOTBALL: Holy Cross-Lanier game notes 8-25 (complete)

Good evening folks

I’m at Alamo Stadium on their guest wi-fi, which means I’m blocked from using Twitter –a problem I expect to be fixed by tomorrow night’s games.

Holy Cross 33, Lanier 0 — FINAL.

In another area game of interest:

McCollum 41, Souh San 27 – Final


>Attendance: 1,895

With help from a 37-yard pass by J.D. Boone to Damian Tovar, the Voks threatened late in the third quarter. A Holy Cross facemask penalty moved Lanier to the Knights 18. Phoenix Perez picked up a 3rd-and-3 with 41 seconds left in the quarter. The Voks had 1st-and-goal at the 8, but Boone was sacked by HC’s Raymond Casarez back to the 18 as the quarter ended.

On the opening play of the fourth quarter, Darren Graham, seeing his first action since the Hondo game last Sept. 17, intercepted a pass in the end zone, squelching Lanier’s best scoring opportunity.

A tipped interception by Austin “Tex” Gonzales at Holy Cross 48 following Lara’s TD with 6:03 left in 3rd qtr. But the Knights couldn’t capitalize.
