Deer fall in low scoring affair

Written by Bobby Vasquez. Posted in Sports

A defensive struggle netted only nine combined points as Deer Park fell to arch rival La Porte, 7-2. This marks the first time in four years the Deer have lost to the Bulldogs.

Senior running back Shawn Oneychi accounted for 107 of Deer Park’s 115 total yards. Quarterback Andrew Story completed only one of 10 pass attempts for minus 5 yards, and one interception.
La Porte got on the board in the first quarter, when quarterback Ryan Williams found Chase Garner for a 54-yard touchdown pass. Deer Park’s defense answered back in a big way, keeping the Bulldogs scoreless the rest of the way. The Deer defense sacked Williams in the endzone just before the end of the first half.
Deer Park’s record is now 3-2 overall, 1-1- in district 22-5A play. They travel to Dobie next week at Pasadena Veteran’s Memorial Stadium.
