Eye on the ball

Lamar Consolidated senior Ernesto Parada downs a punt against Terry. 

Lamar Consolidated’s 0-4 start did not full reflect the Mustangs’ efforts against a tough slate of games to start the season. 

But a 56-0 shutout loss to A&M Consolidated on Friday to start District 10-5A DII shoes how far the Mustangs still have to go contend for a playoff spot by season’s end. 

The Mustangs were shutout for the first since 2017, a 70-0 loss to Angleton at Traylor Stadium. 

Friday marks the first 0-5 start for Lamar Consolidated since 2016, former head coach Rick LaFavers’ second season. 

The Mustangs finished that year 0-10. 

Turnovers and inefficiency in the red zone put the Mustangs behind the eight-ball early at Tiger Stadium in College Station. 

Lamar Consolidated (0-5, 0-1)  will return to Rosenberg to face Huntsville after a bye week in Week 10. 

The Hornets beat Rudder 36-17 Friday night to improve to 4-0 overall.
