EUSTACE–After Eustace’s 45-0 win over the hosting Kemp Yellowjackets Friday, the Bulldogs set their sights on homecoming, and the Malakoff Tigers for the second district game of the season.
“They (Malakoff) are very talented and playing with a lot of confidence,” Eustace head coach Brian Herman said.
Malakoff’s only loss was a slim, 34-30, affair Sept. 21.
They defeated Grand Saline, 40-12; Italy, 64-36, and Mabank, 21-7.
Herman expects a strong running game to dominate Malakoff’s performance, especially considering the Tigers’ quarterback was a running back last year. “He’s a big, running quarterback,” Herman explained.
Eustace, on the other hand, has a strong run-based offense, and will give the Tiger defense fits.
Against Kemp Sept. 29, three Eustace Bulldogs ran for more 100 or more yards.
Jesus Barcenas rushed nine times for 156 yards, Tyler Folsom had six rushes for 110 yards and Adam Carson ran seven times for 100 yards.
Nathan Denson added 94 yards on seven rushes.
In all, Eustace racked up 559 rushing yards. Kemp had 282 total yards – 206 passing yards and 76 rushing yards.
Kemp’s Kolton Hill caught passes for 93 yards, and Jordan Litts had two receptions for 25 yards. Julian Olvarez added 24 yards on two catches.
Homecoming festivities, including the crowning of homecoming queen, will be held during halftime Friday. Game time is set for 7:30 p.m.
