Bulldogs continue collecting Ws

It was a pretty good week to be a Bulldog fan regardless what sport you were cheering for. The boys soccer team held on for an exciting 2-1 victory in their district opener versus Jarrell. It was a great team effort for the win. Tyler Torres had a highlight 40-yard kick that soared in at the top of the goal just out of the goalie’s reach for Burnet’s opening score. It was shortly followed with another first half score on a free kick. Torres gave teammate Danny Lopez a good kick and Lopez took care of the rest with an outstanding header to make it 2-0. Torres scored all three goals in Friday contest versus Lampasas. See soccer story for more information. The Lady Dawgs soccer team has also been shining under the stadium lights. The girls were off on Tuesday but when they resumed play on Friday they delivered a butt-kicking to the Lady Badgers with a 4-0 victory. In the absence of striker Savannah McHam, who is out with an injury, Kinley Beyer has stepped up well.

Go Waterdawgs!

Pups season all about progress

A hardworking middle school program will lead to high school success and the BMS Bullpup basketball teams have been putting in the work. They are moving right along in district play and recently held tournaments in Burnet for some added competition as well. They didn’t shy away from inviting some big teams and each Pup squad came away with valuable experience. Seventh-grade White The seventh-grade White team played in two tournament games and split their record at 1-1 which earned them third place overall. After being tied at the half the Pups fought through and claimed a 22-20 win over Lampasas in their first game. Brandon Ng was the leading scorer followed by Michael Sariol, seven; Kody Suter, five; and Trevor Allen, one. The Pups lost their second game to an impressive Georgetown Benold group, 32-5. Adrian Hernandez and Allen each scored two, while Avery Holcomb added one. Last week the Pups returned to district play and beat Salado, 23-15.

Outstanding effort by Lady Pups

The past couple of weeks have been both busy and productive for the middle school Lady Bullpup basketball teams. The girls have been giving their coaches outstanding effort in their quest to improve their skills and add wins to their record. Burnet recently played in a Marble Falls hosted tournament and last week they hosted Salado for district games. Reports were not available for all four teams. Seventh-grade A The seventh-grade A team went 2-1 in the Marble Falls tournament and claimed second place for their efforts. Burnet defeated host Marble Falls in the opener, 28-9. Ashlyn Calhoun led the offense with eight points, followed by Kayla Gillaspie, seven; Shelby Wagner, seven; Jaycee Morris, four; and Madelynne Jones, two. In their second game Burnet had a bad third quarter that eventually led to them falling short to Lake Travis, 27-18. Rylee Hernandez was Burnet’s leading scorer with six, followed by Calhoun, five; Gillaspie, three; Wagner, two; and Gracie McCormick, two.

Powerlifters flex in Lampasas

Burnet powerlifters got their first meet in last Thursday in Lampasas and for many of the 23 lifters it was their first meet ever. Don’t let the newbie thing fool you, every lifter that got to board the bus came to play. The girls team carried 12 lifters to Lampasas, the exact number it takes to qualify as a team, and when the final results were tallied they had claimed a second place finish as a team. They were only two points shy of host team Lampasas for the championship. The Badgers have dominated the team aspect locally over the past few years with sheer numbers but the Lady Dawg lifters may have something to say about that tomorrow. Burnet has two returning lifters in Jayci Craig and Brailey Hall, they each dominated their class in route to gold at Lampasas. With lots of help and persuasion the girls team of three in 2016 has grown to 15 lifters in 2017. One of those rookies, Julyssa Silvia earned gold in her first ever meet, and another rookie, Alex Barry claimed silver.

Last second win moves Dawgs to 6-1

The varsity Bulldog basketball team has finished round one of district play and after an exciting last second victory over Liberty Hill on Friday night Burnet will enter the second round with a 6-1 record. There are three solid competitors in 19-4A including Lampasas, who remains undefeated, Burnet with one loss, and Liberty Hill with two losses. When each of these three teams have played each other the game has come down to a final second shot. Lampasas is in the drivers seat for a district championship, they are undefeated, and will get to host both Burnet and Liberty Hill in the second round. They control their own destiny, but don’t be passing out any awards just yet. The Bulldogs and Panthers will still have a lot to say about who gets the No.1 spot out of 19-4A. It should be an interesting race right down to the finish, and could even end in a three-way tie.
