Mike Says: Terry got the big surprise win in week 0 over the Cougars. Some say it was not a surprise though. La Marque has had another great season even defeating a very good Pearland Dawson team without superstar running Tim Wright. Wright will be back in this game. Its hard to beat a good team twice in a season. The COUGARS win 34-21!!!

Chris Says: I have missed both these team after transplanting to the Austin area three years ago.  For about 16 years prior to that, I saw both of these teams field some amazing teams and amazing players.  While I am impressed with Rosenberg Terry this year, La Marque is right... uh, WRIGHT this year.  Tim Wright will not only be the difference maker as they avenge their previous matchup with Terry, but the anchor of a great postseason run.  The COUGARS win 32-17!!!

    The La Marque Cougars live for the 2nd Season(playoffs)! its embedded in our DNA and this is why we play. Terry got a win in week one against a team, that was feeling out a new playbook, learning a new coaches way and just plain old taking a team for granted. Thursday will be ugly because this Cougars defense is Lethal! LM alll the way 41- 13.

      We won but it was a tooth and nail fight and i have all the respect in the world because terry played their tails off, they were down but they came ahead and almost pulled it off, great quarterback protection was the best thing i noticed and the ability to score on the LM turnovers.
