Mike Says: What a great game this one will be. This is just the beginning of a lot of great district 24-4A matchups. La Marque has been rolling teams lately after losing a close one to Rosenberg Terry in week 0. They have beaten their last 3 opponents by a score of 203-9!! Manvel has not even been tested this year. Their closest game is a 34 point victory over Goose Creek Memorial. Something has got to give and it will be La Marque. Manvel comes in with 830 rushing yards and 944 passing yards over 4 games. Julian Walker (461 passing 296 rushing) splits time at QB with Shane McCarley (483 passing). Big OL Travis Romero protects them both and also paves the way for the running game. On defense the Mavericks are led by LB Chris Dismuke (24 tackles), DL Taiwan Johnson (4 sacks 14 tackles) and DB Effrum Webber (6 PD 14 tackles). The defense will have its hands full with the Cougars star running back Tim Wright. Manvel is our pick to go to the state championship game. The MAVERICKS win 42-28!!

Chris Says: This has the makings of a great rivalry for years to come.  All knotted up at two wins each, both in the same very tough District 24-4A, both scoring like mad.  Both trying to stay in the running with Pearland Dawson.  La Marque has been a great team historically and their one stumble this year against Rosenberg Terry may just mean that Terry is a much better team than everyone suspected.  La Marque is scoring more points than Manvel but giving up more, although the two are nearly identical.  This will likely be the best game in the Houston area this weekend.   I know we have Manvel looking to go further come playoff time, but this week, La Marque earns back some bragging rights - COUGARS win 38-33!!!
