Tigers look for rebound against Kennedale

Texas High (1-2) is playing in Lindale tonight at 7:30 against the Kennedale High School Wildcats (2-2).

Kennedale just suffered a loss at the hands of Argyle by a score of 44-13. The Tigers have had bad luck in their past two games–a defeat by Evangel with the final score being 54-7, as well as a tough loss against Tyler Lee (23-7).

Kennedale has faced tougher teams than Texas High, and both of Kennedale’s losses have come from playing powerhouses.

Texas High’s win has been the victory over Arkansas High, 13-7. When Evangel, a highly talented team, played against us we lost with a final score of 54-7. Kennedale may be well prepared to give the Tigers a challenge.

The majority of Kennedale’s points have been obtained by their running game. They use passing mostly to pick up a few yards. Normally more passing would be necessary, but their running backs keep breaking off, getting ridiculous yardage. So far this offense has been helpful to Kennedale and has been the reason for their success.

Junior running back Treveon Walker is the Tiger’s best bet for getting the victory over the Wildcats. He has played a vital role in every game played this year. During the Evangel game, Walker gave the Tigers their only score of the game, saving them from a shutout. He has by far the most yards of any player and continues to push the ball forward every time he gets it in his hands.

If the Tigers want to have any chance of winning, they will need to win the turnover battle. Against Tyler Lee, poor decisions in the passing game ultimately resulted in a loss. The Tigers will certainly need to focus on limiting mistakes and maintaining possession.

Kennedale has a slightly better record than the Tigers and has played strong teams. Their running game is spectacular and has been successful in the past. If Walker can bring everything he’s got, he might be able to save Texas high from a loss.

Because of these reasons, I predict the game outcome of 28-10 Kennedale.
