AUSTIN (KXAN) — Lampasas is off to a 3-0 start to the 2020 football season, beating Wimberley 57-28 on Friday at Badger Field in Lampasas.
Lampasas and Wimberley, both undefeated and ranked in the 4A state rankings, definitely deserved the spotlight treatment for this week in Central Texas high school football. On Friday night, Lampasas started out hot behind a cast of playmakers and quarterback Ace Whitehead.
The Badgers scored twice early for a 14-0 lead after the first quarter, taking a 36-14 lead into the locker room at halftime.
Running back Moses Wray scored both first half touchdowns for Wimberley.
In the second half, Lampasas extended its lead as Wimberley couldn’t break through to get any closer to the Badgers.
Lampasas travels to China Spring (3-0) next week for another non-conference match-up against an undefeated team. Wimberley (2-1) hosts Fredericksburg.
Giddings vs. Taylor
After making an appearance in the KBVO Big Game of the Week last week, Taylor hosted 1-1 Giddings on Friday, looking for their first win of the season.
Giddings used two explosive offensive plays for a touchdown and field goal early against Taylor for an early 11-0 lead (Giddings converted on a two-point conversion on their first score of the game).
In the second quarter, Taylor cut the deficit to 18-6, but Giddings responded with a touchdown late in the half for a 25-6 lead.
Giddings put this contest completely out of reach in the third quarter with three unanswered touchdowns for a 46-12 victory on the road. Giddings (2-1) hosts Caldwell next Friday.
Taylor will try to get on the winning side of the ledger on the road at La Grange next week.
