I can't believe this is the final week of the regular season, time sure passes by quickly, but then again I have not been practicing in the hot sun since August. So here are the games for this week and my picks:

Thursday:
Copperas Cove @ Harker Heights: COVE, the Dawgs have already secured the #1 Seed in DII playoffs from Distirct 12 and they want to claim the outright District Championship that has eluded them the past few years. I know Heights will put their best effort forward in an attempt to stop the Dawgs, but I see the Dawgs as being very focused on winning this game. Dawgs win 34-21.

Friday:
Ellison VS Shoemaker: SHOEMAKER, I thought the Wolves would win this game easily but after their performance agaisnt Cove last Friday I don't think it will be a cake walk for them. However they do the ability to play better than demonstated in their last outing. But Ellison showed they also have the potential to win in their game against Temple. I still think the Wolves will win this game 14-7. Not my pick for game of the week but a close second.

AMC @ Belton: AMC, the #1 seed from our district in the Division I playoffs is at stake, the winner of this game gets to face Mesquite the loser gets to face De Soto in the Bi-District playoffs. Great rewards for the victor. I see AMC winning 28-21. This is my pick for GOTW.

Bryan @ Temple: TEMPLE, the Cats are already in the playoffs and will face Longview. Bryan seems to be playing far below what was expected of this, Temple wins this game 35-14.

Its been fun watching and posting with the fans from District 12 5a, if your team is not in the playoffs stay on and support those 4 teams that are representing the district.

It's hard to believe no comments in a day and half from our district posters.

ACM AT Belton

No doubt the GOTW in 12-5A.
Consol got a little wake up the last few weeks with the close loss to Cove and the extremely poor first half against Harker Heights. Really question the decision of the ACM Coaches to try and make something happen before the half. Consol was doing nothing offensively and with 40 something seconds to go and 80 yards from the endzone in a tie game they push the issue even further and wind up allowing Heights defense to score 14 points in the final 40 seconds. At home and getting the ball after the break...get into the locker rooms and make adjustments. Instead they go in down 20-6. Luckily the kids resoponded and played a great 2nd half to get the win.
The RB White for Consol is a real talent...I look for Consol to really go to the ground against Belton as the passing game has lead to turnovers the last few weeks. The QB Browowski? is also a much better threat running than he his throwing. I think (hope) the Consol coaches are going to want to slow down the game and keep the Belton offense and the crowd out of the game.
This game is huge...I have seen both Desoto and Mesquite play...theyre not even close. I believe both Consol and Belton can beat Mesquite and neither would have a chance against Desoto...not many teams in the state would.

Congratulations though to A&M Consolidated, Belton, Copperas Cove and Temple on the postseason. Best of luck to all!

Agreed! Last year we went 1-4 against 11 5A, with only AMC winning. We really need to do better than that. Best wishes to all the playoff teams from our district this year.

Its been fun watching and posting with the fans from District 12 5a, if your team is not in the playoffs stay on and support those 4 teams that are representing the district.

Copperas Cove @ Harker Heights (Thursday): I think the Knights come to play & want that upset to finish over .500, but Cove should be too much in the end..good game here & it won't be easy.

Ellison vs Shoemaker: Yes the Wolves came out flat vs Cove but I think you'll see a very angry & determined Grey Wolf effort here. It's a rivalry game here so throw the records out the door or so the cliche says, but this game is important to both teams. Ellison was surprising last week against Temple with the wildcat but I feel the Wolves D will be ready for it beccause they practice against it! Bottom line; I think Ellison wants the W, but Shoemaker needs it, & if they play like they did against Bryan, Belton, & Temple they should get the W & break that doggone L streak once & for all.

AMC @ Belton: Another good one here, Consol is on a roll, I think they win this one & take the D-1 #1 seed.

Bryan @ Temple: Wildcats gear up for the playoffs & get their offense together with a big win against the reeling Vikings.

Last week of the regular season, let's do it right! Best of luck to all teams this week & also to those in the playoffs.

I really thought that this week's game would bring the AMC and Belton Posters out of the woods to talk this Game of the Week. This game will be a barn burner. Belton has had difficllty stoping a good ground game, IE Temple and Cove. But I think Belton's passing attack will really test AMC defensive backs. In fact, I am going to change my pick for this game, I am going with Belton to win 28-21, this is the first time I've switched predictions but I think Belton will win this game and get the #1 seed from our district in DI.

I agree the Belton offense will test Consols D..but I think ACM has been playing very well on the defensive side of the ball and they look to be improving each week. They had to come up huge last week against Heights as the Heights Defense scored 14 points as mentioned earlier. I was able to attend ACM-Heights game last week as I was in College Station for the Aggie game...and the 2nd half they played really well. The offensive line for Heights was big and talented...ACM was getting penetration all night and that ended up being the difference in the game. Consol has a DE that is a move in from Odessa Permian that is a Junior and has verbally committed to Texas A&M. Do not know his name and can’t remember his number...have to look it up and get back...but he is an absolute force in the trenches. Yes HH scored 23 but the D let up only 9. Against Belton I would look for a relentless pass rush from Consol.
I was very impressed with Consol holding Cove to a season low 23 points...especially at home where they were averaging 57 points...including hanging 37 on Belton. Both teams shut out Ellison, pretty much the same on Bryan (Consol 21, Belton 17) Consol a TD better against Temple (30-23) and consol shuts out Shoemaker and Belton lets up 21. To me the numbers against Cove and Shoemaker make me wonder if the Belton Offense can score enough on the ACM D...but this is definitely not a numbers game and should be a great game in Belton. I’m not sure who’s going to win but 28 points gets it done.
My question is...what happen to the Belton offense against Temple....8 points?!?!? I understand is a rivalry and everything gets thrown out the window and all that stuff....but with all the numbers to look at that one is the most staggering by far. Temples Defense has given up a ton of points all year.

My question is...what happen to the Belton offense against Temple....8 points?!?!?

Temple played a great game. Belton never seemed to get on track until the second half. Temple came out fired up and ready to play. They also seemed more prepared and better coached. In the 3rd qtr Belton seemed to score and the refs called it a fumble. If they would have gotten that score and the 2 point conversion Belton still trails 23-16. So could they have scored again? Belton didn't so at this point all you can say is they still came up short.

http://www.youtube.com/user/BeltonTigerLand#p/u/11/XNswAs6vv8U at the 3:30 point in this video you can decide for yourself. This is in no way a knock on Temple or an excuse Temple played great and Belton lost.

Against Shoe, I feel that the Belton players slept walked the entire first 3qtrs. There was no life in the team. When they finally decided to play they scored enough points in the 4th to tie the game. Thats just my opinion. Shoe played as great game and deserved to win. Belton got lucky to get the win. At this point in the season I will take that win. But, it was hard to see the Wolves lose a game that they could have won.

Against Bryan: Belton played hard from the start. Made plays when they needed to. Once the game was tied at 10 Belton went for the onside and got it. They scored twice more and took a 24-10 half time lead. In the second half with the score 32-10 Bryan scored on a very nice long play and made the score 32-17. The very next play for Belton was a 50 yard run play from Williams to put the Tigers back up 39-17 and out of reach for Bryan. So, if Belton comes to play this friday, and I think they will, we got a chance. I don't see the Belton team taking A&M lightly when they are more then capable of blowing Belton out.

Temple had consolidated down 30-27 with a couple of minutes left in the game, and couldn't hang on. temple's defense has gotten better every week. They had heights at 16 points with 6 minutes left in the game. All hell broke out. If it hadn't been for our defense against shoemaker and ellison we would of lost. Our offense has been struggling with putting the ball in the endzone lately. our defense has had trouble stopping the wildcat, but made the stops when they had to

Ya. That was a bad call, among many, and some no calls. That should of been a belton touchdown or at least on the half yard line. The ref was right there, also I thought when Temple drove down first possession of the 2nd half. I thought allen got in when he dove, but they said he didn't. The next play allen fumbled on the one yard line. If he holds on like he should of, score would of been 30-8 at that time,but that is how it goes sometimes, I guess. That belton call was terrible though.Should of been belton's ball or a touchdown. It was close,but should of never been given to temple

I went with AMC @ Belton as the game of the week due to the playoff implications, which are huge. Loser has to play De Soto.

Cove @ Harker Heights - going with Cove on this, but they better not let their guard down by looking ahead to the playoffs. As I have seen with Temple its not easy to play in Killeen on Thursday night.

Ellision @ Shoemaker - Shoemaker. Both teams played Temple really tough but I give Shoemaker a slight edge, even though it could go either way.

AMC @ Belton - This one is really hard to call. Definitely a tossup. I give a slight edge to AMC.

Bryan @ Temple - I think Temple will win but if they don't play better than they did against Shoemaker and Ellison, it could go the other way. I think Temple will be fired up to gain momentum for the playoffs, even though playing Longview is not going to be any easier than playing De Soto.

It looks like the GOTW in our disrict is the AMC-Belton game, there is a lot on the line for both teams. This game has caused me to be wishy-washy, picking AMC, then Belton and now I leaning toward AMC again. I guess it depends on the Belton Offense. They have the potential to win this game. It would be a good game to go see Friday night and since Cove plays on Thursday, I might make the trip to Belton and see this great game. I want Belton to win personally, but I really think AMC has the better team in this match up. Anyway, AMC and Belton are aready assured playoffs spots along with Temple and Cove: Best wishes to all 4 our teams in the playoffs offs, we all have a tough game to start off.

Consol RB Quinton White has switched his commitment from Tulsa to Texas Tech. Oklahoma State was also making a hard push for him. I believe him to be one of the biggest secrets in the entire state. He was 3rd string as a Junior playing behind two great senior backs that each had well over 1000 yards. This year consol started out throwing the ball alot more under the new coach. They got back to their winning ways when they began relying more on the run...which is doing what these kids know how to do and playing to their strength. A HS coach is out of his mind if he trys to take a team that has run the wing T successfully for a decade and try in year one to make them a spread team...it took Rattfield 3 weeks to learn this.
Anyway this article says that White is the 91st rated prospect in the state...Youd be hard pressed to find 50 players better than him.

I read it, thought it was good too! I am definitely pulling for the Greywolves and have been saying for weeks that this was gonna be your game. I still believe it! Play like you all did in your 3 close games and you will pull it off! Will be a great way to go into next season on a positive note!

Good luck!

Its been fun, but all good things must end. With end of the regular season tonight I know some of you will not be on this website again till next season. Have a good basketball season. Those still in the playoffs best of luck, may your team play hard and win. Tonights games are good games to end the regular season, Ellison and Shoemaker is going to be a great game. Belton and AMC will be the GOTW, and Temple and Bryan will be interesting. Cove and Harker Heights played last night, in a very lack luster game, Heights was BIG! and had two very good ball carries. God bless all you, happy holidays and good playoff seasons!

Great win cats. You can feel we are starting to get alittle home field advantage. Defense played lights out, only giving up 98 total yards. Forced three turnovers. Great win going into the playoffs. GO CATS BEAT THE LOBOS!! :heli:

Congrats to Belton on the win last night. Not attempting to takle anything away from them but REALLY question the Consol coach David Raffield on some key decisions.
First the place kicker? Consol has a fine placekicker...kid has been great all year and made both extra points last night and a 40 yarder heading into the break. Consol scores in the 2nd half to take a 23-20 lead and Raffield puts another kid in there to kick the extra point...he misses and it remains a 3 point game. Then down 3..final seconds to send game to overtime..consol attempts a 44 yard FG and again Raffield puts the backup in...he misses..game over?
White goes out with an injury and Raffield uses a "seldom used backup" as the local paper put it instead of a much more talented underclassmen that has played much more this season.
After the game Raffield was quoted saying he was " trying to give the seniors a chance in their last regular season game" and that "this game really didnt matter".
I guess Coach Raffield really hasnt taken much of a look at Mesquite and Desoto...this game mattered. And what kind of a coach says that anyhow...Coach they all matter!! Ask your kids they will tell you. Its also not right to kids that did nothing wrong and got your team in that position.
Alot of people ion College Station really scratching their heads this morning and not very happy with Coach Raffield. This team had way to much talent to go 5-5 and almost a certain one and done in the playoffs.
Both Belton and AMC can play/beat Mesquite and Garland...and this game "didnt really matter".
Sorry to vent here but very dissapointing for those kids. Im not saying AMC would have won, please dont take it that way.
Best of luck to all 12-5A teams next week.

I agree with everything you said. That game did matter. I thought both Belton and A&M played very hard.

Lots of Belton fans question Coach Southern. We had a 14-0 lead, and at that point A&M had not crossed the 50 yard line, and he kicks the onside. A&M got it on Beltons side of the field and got 7 points. From there A&M tied it up at 14. I think Southern does some stupid things at times. How about that fake punt for a pass. Belton was actually lucky that A&M caught the ball, and lost about 15 yards.

From the games I've seen Belton play, your Coach usually seems to attempt an on-side kick that makes no sense in the game. Sometimes it works, but other times it hurts. But anyway, you'll won and have the advantage of playing the weakest of the Di-District opponents. Best of luck to all the District's playoff teams for next weeks games.
