The 8A Bonnette Bobcats football team played a great game Thursday, tying a bigger and faster Pearland South team 20 – 20. The coaches were very proud of the effort of their players and the way they represented the school with teamwork and sportsmanship.
Both teams and coaches will don pink during the match, and a moment of silence will be held prior to the start in honor of survivors and those who are battling the disease, as well as those who have lost their fight with breast cancer. Fans are also encouraged to wear pink.
The Lady Deer Volleyball team finished second at the Dickinson tournament last week, placing three players on the All-Tournament team.

Four unanswered Jacob O’Neill field goals in the second and third quarters were not enough as the Deer lost their first game of the season 27-20 on the road against the Aldine Mustangs.
