    Just Not Enough

    Where, oh where did the Huntsville offense go? Honestly, every time the Hornets played a big game this season, their offense vanished.

    On Friday night, in arguably their most important game of the 2011 campaign, the Hornets’ “O” pulled its most confounding disappearing act.

    Two first downs. That’s all Huntsville managed in a 28-3 loss to the Montgomery Bears in a Class 4A Division I bi-district playoff game at Moorhead Stadium.

    Defense Gets the ‘Kats Through

    Give them a little bit of time and the Bearkats will find a way to wear their opponents down.

    Despite a few shaky series early on, Sam Houston got into gear and pulled away from Southeastern Louisiana on Saturday. The Kats flexed their muscles and rolled to a 38-9 victory, clinching at least a share of the Southland Conference championship…

    Sincere Multi-tasks at Wide Receiver

    For a player listed as wide receiver on the roster sheet, SHSU sophomore Richard Sincere holds a bit more responsibility when he’s on the field.

    Sometimes, the coaching staff might line Sincere up in the backfield where he’s most comfortable, often using his quarterback instincts to read opposing defensive schemes.

    Other times, Sincere lines up at wide out, where he is still a work in progress. But the most dangerous part of his arsenal is something the coaches can’t teach – explosiveness…

    Bearkats Roll Over Lamar 66 – 0

    Sophomore Richard Sincere rushed for 102 yards and a 40-yard touchdown and caught a 77-yard pass for another TD to lead Sam Houston to a 66-0 shutout of the Lamar Cardinals Saturday afternoon at Eliott T. Bowers Stadium.

    The 66 points represented the second highest score for the Bearkats in a Southland Conference game. Sam Houston scored 69 against Nicholls in 1999…

    The Streak Ends…

    Trailing by three points at halftime, the Hornets said they felt pretty good. An hour or so later, they didn’t look so good.

    After the Panthers of Kingwood Park ran off and left Huntsville 34-14, the Hornets were smarting a bit.

    “We can’t lose our minds like we did tonight. We can’t lose control,” Huntsville defensive end Steve York said. “We’ve got to watch what we do out on the field and tonight we fell apart. We fell apart and started running our mouths.”

    ‘Kats React to Big Win

    In a place where Sam Houston has endured far more agony than jubilation over the years, the seventh-ranked Kats took it to McNeese State and walked out of “The Hole” with yet another dominant performance from start to finish.

    Sam Houston, which had previously won only one once (1999) in Lake Charles, La. in 12 tries, beat up the Cowboys and never relented, cruising to a 38-14 blowout Saturday night…

    ‘Kats Win 38 – 14 at McNeese

    Tim Flanders tied the Sam Houston career record for most 100-yard rushing yard games, Robert Shaw scored on a blocked punt and the Bearkat defense created three turnovers as the Bearkats rolled to a 38-14 Southland Conference football victory over McNeese State Saturday at Cowboy Stadium.

    The win was only the second for Sam Houston in Lake Charles in the Bearkats’ 24 years of NCAA Division I FCS football in the Southland Conference…

    The Streak Continues

    Coming off their biggest win in the last couple of years, the Hornets could have let up a little Friday. It would have been understandable had Huntsville limped through a homecoming game against a struggling and much smaller squad from New Caney.

    Huntsville’s defense did not let up in the least. The Hornets dominated New Caney, holding the Eagles to 55 total yards of offense in a 23-0 Huntsville victory at Bowers Stadium…

    Bearkats Remain Undefeated

    There was seemingly no stopping the Bearkats on Saturday, especially not on homecoming day. From the first snap until time ran out, Sam Houston’s defense harassed the Colonels, who could not come up with an answer.

    The 10th-ranked Kats forced five turnovers — three interceptions and two fumble recoveries — on their way to a 47-7 rout of Nicholls to remain unbeaten and take sole possession of first place in the Southland Conference…
