Klein and Trammell run away from Memorial
Updated: October 2, 2016
Offense Looks Great for Klein Bearkats
Tully Stadium- Head Coach Shane Hallmark and the Klein Bearkats just may like this newfangled District 15-6A. Ten days after beating Spring Woods 49-0, they hit the 40 mark again. This time beating the Houston Memorial Mustangs 45-17.
On a night when almost everything went right for the Bearkats and receiver/defensive back Austin Trammell. The only thing that went wrong was a sprained ankle or bruise and the star’s foot. Trammell, also Klein’s Homecoming King, finished with 6 receptions on 72 yards for 3 TDs and an interception on defense.
Junior Quarterback Greyson Lembcke started out the scoring for the Bearkats on their first drive with a 3 yard play-action TD pass to fellow junior Colton Chelootz and a 7-0 start. Then Trammell intercepted Mustang QB Jared Trozzo at the Klein 46. Seven plays later he was in the end zone with an 8 yard pass from Lembcke making it 14-0 Bearkats.
Cole Moscarriello got the Mustangs on the board with a 36 yard field goal as time expired in the 1st quarter tightening the contest to 14-3. Coach Hallmark then inserted junior Lance Pena in a QB. The result was the same as Klein flooded the left side of the end zone with Bearkats. Pena hit him in the corner for an 8 yard TD pass and the rout was on 21-3. Lembcke then hit tight end Sam Hodges (2-78 yards) for a 49 yard pass as he sprinted down the left sideline extending the lead to 25 points, 28-3.
Davis Koskie got the first Mustang touchdown of the night with an 11 yard run tightening the match at 28-10.
Trammell, who is committed to Rice, caught his third and final TD before the half to put Klein up even further 35-10. The half came to a close with Lembcke, who was a perfect 10-10 with 179 yards and 4 TDs in the first half. The Bearkats held the Mustangs to 143 yards too.
It was more of the same in the 2nd half. Memorial running back Mason Humphries scored on a 1 yard plunge and Greyson Lembcke added a TD run to go with his 4 passing TDs.
Klein finished with 19 first downs and 449 yards total (225 rushing, 224 passing.) They held Memorial to 248 total yards. D’Anthony Simms had 15 rushes for 144 yards and would have added another TD but fumbled into the end zone and the Mustangs recovered. Klein moved to 4-1 on the year with only a 32-33 overtime loss to Fort Bend Marshall.
