Jays win it in OT

Needville celebrates after kicker Pete Cavazos (#80) kicked a game-winning field goal in overtime to beat Columbia on Friday night. 

Pete Cavazos kicked a 37-yard field goal in overtime to help Needville get a 24-21 win over Columbia at Griggs Field in West Columbia on Friday.

The Blue Jays relied on a strong running game, led by senior Walker Warncke to get the road win. But Columbia scored all 21 points in the first half to take a 21-7 lead.

Also, senior quarterback Trevor Baker had two touchdown passes, including a 70-yard touchdown pass to senior Dax Bridges in the first quarter, and Warncke scored from 13 yards out late in the second quarter as Needville pulled with a touchdown, 21-14, at the half.

Needville tied the game with four minutes left in the third quarter as senior quarterback Trevor Baker connected with senior receiver Mitchell Hackstedt for a 41-yard touchdown catch.

Both teams played tough defense in the fourth quarter to send it into overtime. On Columbia’s first possession, Warncke picked off a pass to stop the Roughnecks and give Needville a chance to win.

The victory puts the Blue Jays at 3-3 overall and 1-0 in District 12-4A DI play. Columbia falls to 3-2 overall and 0-1 in district play.

Needville will head to Stafford next week.

Later in the quarter, Garrett connected with Michael Clark for a 24-yard touchdown to put Lamar ahead, and then Clark scored again on a 4-yard touchdown run to put the Mustangs up 20-6 at halftime.

Angleton scored a touchdown and a field goal in the third quarter to cut the lead to 20-12, and Cortez kicked a 28-yard field goal with six minutes left in the game to pull the Wildcats within a point.
