The McCallum Football Knights season ended last Friday night in College Station, when they took on the Waller Bulldogs from District 18 4A. When the final whistle blew the Knights were sent packing with a 41 to 20 loss.
The game looked like it was going to be an offensive showdown with both teams being able to move the ball down the field with ease. McCallum’s lone score in the first quarter was a touchdown pass from Kevin Lusson to Xavier Jefferson. Unfortunately the Knights defense could not stop the Bulldogs running game, and trailed at the end of the first quarter 14 to 7.
Waller continued to run over the Knights defense in the second quarter posting 14 more points up on the board, one of which was an outstanding 99-yard scamper. McCallum did pull to within 14 points at the half when Lusson connected with Vincent Ellis for a touchdown pass, which made the score 28 to 14 Waller going into the break.
Waller ran for two more scores in the second half to bring their points total up to 41. While the Knights were only able to add 6 more points to their side, bringing their total to 20.
