BY MOSES LEOS III For the first 11 plays Friday, things seemed as if they were starting to fall into place for the Lehman Lobos. Lehman's defense forced a three-and-out, resulting in a punt in the game's first series. On offense, passes were crisp and precise, while run plays were executed to near perfection. Most of all, the Lobos held momentum. But a series of unfortu- nate events, including an injury suffered by quar- terback Jacob Zamora, foreshadowed Lehman's game-long struggles as it fell to the Westwood Warriors 42-14 at Shelton Stadium. As the extent of Zamora's injury is not yet known, head coach Todd Raymond and his team push on as it continues to improve on the field. "When we're locked in and we're clicking, we're good," Raymond said. "We have to build on it." Lehman's early suc- cesses on offense were spurred by Zamora, who guided the Lobos into Westwood territory on their first offensive drive of the game in the first quarter. Issues with ball secu- rity, which was a persis- tent issue for Lehman, however, reared its head.

Raymond said the mo- ment was a challenge for Martinez, who attended Westwood two years ago. Despite some miscom- munication errors, Ray- mond applauded Marti- nez's effort in attempting to continue to generate momentum. Raymond also lauded Henderson's play, as he showed "what he's capable of."

Vista Ridge at Dripping Springs Hays vs. Georgetown Westlake vs. Liberty (Henderson, NV) Vandegrift at Cedar Park Lake Travis at Cibolo Steele Lehman at McCallum - Thursday, 7:30 p.m. at House Park Leander at Pflugerville A week after a litany of big time matchups, several district 25-6A teams will spend week two attempting to recover. Some teams, however, will receive a second helping when it comes to games against top-tier op- position. Lake Travis, which dropped its season opener to Converse Judson, will stay in the San Antonio area when it plays Cibolo Steele. Vandegrift, which fell in heartbreaking fashion to Odessa Permian, travels to play 2015 Class 5A Division I champion Cedar Park. Teams that notched a tally in the win column won't receive a reprieve either. Westlake, which stunned Katy last week but lost quarterback Sam Ehlinger in the pro- cess, hosts an out-of-state team in a televised contest. Vista Ridge travels to play an up-and-coming Dripping Springs team that seems to be on a roll. That brings us to Hays, which takes on a Georgetown team that put up a host of points on Fort Worth Brewer in Waco last week. Meanwhile, Lehman will look to get back on the winning side when it plays McCallum Thursday at House Park. McCallum will enter the game with an additional day of rest after defeating Anderson in the Taco Shack Bowl.
