Albany 68, Era 0

Era (2-9) ended its season with a loss against Albany (10-0) Thursday night at Iowa Park. Albany jumped on top of the Hornets quickly, leading 20-0 after the first quarter and a 48-0 at halftime. The Lions rushed for 332 yards, led by senior Jaheim Newton’s 128 yards and three touchdowns. Junior quarterback Cole Chapman was the second-leading rusher with 83 yards and a score on two carries. He also completed 10 of 11 passes for 258 yards and four touchdowns.

Era played three of the top four teams in Class 2A-2 this season in No. 2 Muenster, No. 3 Windthorst and No. 4 Albany, a tough ask for the Hornets. Era says goodbye to seniors like receiver Kyle Greer, but quarterback Jarren Twiner leads a group of players who will return next year looking to put the experience they gained to good use.

Dublin 38, Callisburg 33

Callisburg (9-2) ended its season with a loss to Dublin (8-3) at Boyd. The Wildcats never led but tied the game three times. Trailing 28-21 in the fourth quarter, junior Colton Montgomery scored on a one-yard run. The two-point try failed, leaving Callisburg a point down. Dublin extended its lead with a rushing touchdown and a field goal. Junior Colton Simpson returned the final kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown to give the Wildcats one more shot, but Dublin recovered the onside kick and ran out the clock.

Montgomery scored three rushing touchdowns in the game. Senior running back Brayden Trammell scored one, and Simpson had the kickoff return touchdown. Dublin junior quarterback Chris Teten threw for 361 yards and three touchdowns. The loss is a disappointing end to a tremendous season, but the rapid improvement Callisburg has shown over the past two seasons provides optimism for the future.
