Last year, Fulshear celebrated its first varsity win in a come-for-behind victory over Huffman Hargrave. But the payback could be on its way.
The Chargers are hoping to repeat history in Friday night’s game at Falcon Stadium in Huffman at 7 p.m., but Fulshear comes into the game with a lot of issues to work out from last week’s loss.
Fulshear struggled to get its offense going as La Grange’s rushing attack controlled the game and kept the Chargers from digging out of an early hole.
La Grange ran for 229 yards and three touchdowns in Fulshear’s 28-13 loss on Thursday night.
The Chargers also have a bad streak going for them, as the offense allowed a defensive score for the sixth straight game.
Head coach Oschlor Flemming hopes that better attention to detail can turn things around.
“We’ve just got to clean up a few things,” Flemming said. “They saw on film on Saturday how close we were, and they came in Monday with a plan. We just have to take care of ourselves and not have any mental breakdowns.”
Hargrave comes into the game with a lot of momentum, as the Falcons dominated Liberty 34-7 last Friday.
Quarterback Justin Shively threw for 303 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Falcons, while running back A.J. San Miguel ran for two scores.
The Falcons have a senior-laden team with 26 upperclassmen on the roster.
Hargrave’s defense held Liberty to only 255 yards of offense, all on the ground.
The Falcons will be looking for revenge for last year’s 42-26 loss, which Flemming and the Chargers will have to be ready for.
“(Hargrave) is a good football team. We might have caught them slipping last year,” Flemming said.
“They’re going to be real solid, so we just have to execute well and we got to eliminate shooting ourselves in the foot.”
