HARLINGEN -  Any Harlingen victory is likely to make Cardinals' coach Manny Gomez happy.  But, you have to figure the former Harlingen linebacker took special pleasure in the way the Cards made a statement win 22-20 over playoff rival San Antonio Reagan on Friday night.  Tied at 20 in the final minute, the Cardinals pinned Reagan inside the shadows of the end zone with a punt downed at the Reagan 1.  Harlingen recorded a safety to take the win.  That's a nice skin for Valley football in the constant battle for statewide respect.  The Cards' biggest rival, San Benito, likely retained the top 6A ranking in Dave's Dozen with a solid 31-7 victory over previously unbeaten McAllen Memorial.  5A teams entered week three with a 10-9 advantage over bigger 6A enrollments in head to head matchups.  Vela evened the season score with a win in Brownsville over Veterans Memorial.  The 5A schools added to their lead with wins by Mercedes over Weslaco 21-20, Lopez over PSJA Memorial 61-7, and Donna over La Joya 16-0.  Juarez Lincoln improved to 3-and-0 for the season with a 31-3 decision over Donna North.
