The score to last Friday’s district opener between Burnet and China Spring may appear to be a runaway at first sight, but in fact it was a slow methodical process. The Cougars brought a quality team to Burnet, with a No.7 state ranking, but all things didn’t come easy for the boys in blue.

A scrappy Bulldog team showed up to play, and even captured the first lead.

Quarterback Chandler Galban found his big brother Sterling Galban on a deep middle ball during Burnet’s second series and the rest was history as the elder Galban turned on the jets for a 68-yard score with 8:14 on the first quarter clock. The PAT failed, 6-0 Bulldogs.

The Cougars answered with a nine-play drive; Cougar Erik Hart broke a few tackles and took it the final 15-steps to put the visitors up 7-6 with 5:34 in the first.
