• Valley View 61, Nocona 7
The Valley View Eagles looked like a team displeased with its blowout loss the week before and they took their pent-up frustrations out on the Nocona Indians on Friday, Sept. 20, in a big way.
It’s rare the Muenster Hornets have to rerack after a loss, let alone a double-digit loss, but they’ll have to do so before they face Trinity Christian for their homecoming game at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20, at Hornet Stadium.
Much of this season has gone similarly to last year for the Valley View Eagles. They have been up and down at times as they gain their footing in the non-district portion of the schedule.

The Lindsay Knights came up just short of the upset over Muenster in the kraut bowl Friday, Sept. 6, but despite nearly turning the tables on the Hornets, the Knights aren’t looking for any moral wins.
This year’s kraut bowl shaped up to be a closer matchup than in previous showdowns and this year’s tilt followed suit Friday, Sept. 6, at Hornet Stadium.
Last season’s kraut bowl was more compelling than 2017’s blowout of 65-0. Lindsay nearly had a 14-0 lead but a costly fumble kept the score manageable for Muenster to find its legs on the way to a 49-10 road win.
