High School varsity football started the season last weekend, with all the Aldine teams playing against relatively week teams, but losing anyway.
In an optimistic note, the football writer for the Northeast News, Mike Keeney, had picked all the Aldine teams to win. Perhaps he meant next week?
On Thursday night, MacArthur played Klein Forest, and lost 45-58.
On Friday, the Davis Falcons suffered the worst loss, against the Woodlands College Park team, 0-31. The same evening, the Nimitz Cougars lost to powerhouse Channelview Falcons, 25-35.
Saturday games included Eisenhower Eagles 21, Fort Bend Marshall Buffs 28. The Aldine Mustangs lost to the Cypress Falls Eagles, 20-42.
In other local games, Sam Houston HS/MST Tigers lost badly to the Needville Blue Jays, 0-55.
Over at North Forest, the Bulldogs played doggedly, and almost won against the Houston Austin Mustangs. The score was 28-29.
Aldine ISD had two new coaches, Eric Jackson at Eisenhower, and Wayne Crawford at MacArthur. No doubt they will try again next weekend for their first victory
