First & Goal Friday: September 15th
McALLEN - San Benito won a road test over McAllen Memorial 31-7 in the week three "Game of the Week." The Greyhounds' Tyrone Harper ran the opening kickoff back for a touchdown. Memorial came right back to tie the game. The Greyhounds then stifled Memorial's offense the rest of the night. The Hounds' biggest rival, Harlingen, recorded a huge win for Valley football. After downing a punt at the Reagan 1-yard line, the Cardinals stuffed the Raiders for a game winning safety. Harlingen defeated Reagan 22-20.
Three Friday games were on the opening week schedule for 31-5A. Rio Grande City swamped Valley View 63-0. Pioneer defeated Cigarroa 34-12. Nixon won over Roma 27-7.
