It was a heartbreak in Hutto for College Station on Friday night.
The homestanding Hippos rallied from 17 points down in the fourth quarter to win the Class 5A Divisoin II bi-district showdown 56-52 over the Cougars, playing in the playoffs in the program’s first year of eligibility.
CONROE — As much as a tune-up for the playoffs, the College Station Cougars used their 63-7 victory over Caney Creek on Friday at Buddy Moorhead Stadium to get the terrible taste out of their mouth following their overtime loss to Bryan last week in a battle for the District 18-5A title.
It took overtime, but what’s a few more minutes when a program has waited 15 years for a district football championship?
The Bryan Vikings put together a big second-half rally then answered after College Station scored on the last play of regulation to force overtime, with Bryan claiming a 41-34 victory in a battle for at least a share of the District 18-5A title on a cool Friday night at Cougar Field.
