Gonzales Apaches (11-0)

Playoff Appearances : 17

Streak: 1 Consecutive Years

Last Week: Gonzales 21, Hondo 10


Mike Says: The Gonzales defense has been great all year giving up only 71 points all year long. They also had 5 shutouts. Wimberley just about has the same stats having given up 147 points and while scoring 41 points per game. In like games, Wimberley beat La Vernia and Cuero 83-12 while Gonzales beat them 42-9. This will be a good one. I am a little surprised that Gonzales has been so good but we had Wimbeley as a pre-season favorite to go to state. The TEXANS win 31-28!!!!

Chris Says:  Wimberley got their wake-up call last week when Taylor (a team that started the season 0-7) took them to double overtime.  Last year Wimberley's wake-up call came in a loss to Coldspring-Oakhurst and it ended their season.  This year, they survived and will play better because of it.  Coach Weldon Nelms' team will be ready to go against this surprising Gonzales team.  Gonzales has quietly rolled up a perfect season, but it hasn't been against top-notch teams.  I expect Gonzales to be exposed and the TEXANS to win 42-28!!!!

    Throw all the stats out the window. This should be a good game. Taking nothing away from a seasoned Wimberley team but, we all know defense wins championships. The Apaches have and will lean heavy on their defense. Wimberley has not played a defense like the Apaches all season. You can say all you want about how Wimberley beat LV and Cuero worse than Gonzales did. What you have to realize is Gonzales has done what they had to do to win. We play ball control, drive the ball down your throat and score. Wimberley will not have the number of plays in the game they are used to. Take 3-7 Taylor to double overtime give me a break. Gonzales is not Taylor and are not 3-7. I promise you this you have not seen a team fly around the football and hit like the Apache defense. You may not respect the Apaches but, it shouldn’t take you long after the first play.

      I think it’s a little obvious Wimberly took Taylor a little light. Afterall, who wouldn’t given their record. Don’t get me wrong, I think Taylor is certainly better than their record indicates. In any event, the Texan’s won’t be looking past the Apache’s and I expect they will be more than ready. Wimberly by 10.

    Taylor had a bunch of injured seniors that returned for the end of the season. The Taylor team that almost took down the mighty Texans was not the same as the guys who lost 7 straight.

    If you want to use the transitive properties of comparing teams, it looks like the Apaches would have had even more trouble with Taylor than did Wimberley.

    Burns in the belly a little, don’t it?
