A man told a sportsmen’s group recently that a fishing guide had told him the white bass were running on Lake Travis. He suggested they form a group to fish. By end of the meeting, he had enough people for a late January or February trip. 

It was one of those sports moments where whoever was there realized they would likely never see another one like it ever again.

HOUSTON – So far, the December-May composed roster for the Goose Creek Memorial Lady Patriots soccer team appears to be working out just fine.

The Goose Creek Memorial girls basketball team has set itself for the big push following an emphatic  62-35 home win over Galena Park Friday night.

When wins come at a premium, a team will take whatever good fortune it can muster.

In an attempt to save money across the landscape of its sports programs, the Goose Creek CISD decided it was time to look for a new relationship.

Three weeks short of a year ago to the day, the Robert E. Lee girls basketball team played host to the Santa Fe Indians in Baytown and were promptly clubbed, 73-31.

A district breakthrough was left wanting for the Sterling Rangers basketball team Friday night.

DAYTON – The Crosby Cougars used a Steven Godinez penalty kick in the 55th minute to regain the lead and take a 2-1 win over the Willowridge Eagles on Saturday morning in the semi-final game at Houston Methodist Field at Bronco Stadium to move into the championship game of the Dayton Tournament. 

The volleyball season ended in November, but don’t tell local programs.

With soccer season officially underway, the pre-district tournaments are taking over the scene for the next few weeks.

The Robert E. Lee basketball teams suffered losses to District 22-5A rival Texas City Tuesday night.

After four weeks off, the Lee College Rebels basketball team returned to action in the new year and suffered some unfriendly results in Region XIV play over the past few days.

The Sterling Rangers (1-0) got two first-half goals, one each by Rogelio Chavez and Oscar Rangel helped them to a 2-0 home win Monday over rivals Robert E. Lee (0-2). REL's Christian Marsiglia, 13, and Jose Monrreal battle for a loose ball against Sterling's Andy Gomez, 4, and Antonio Hernandez, 7.

Two goals in the last 10 minutes of play lifted Goose Creek Memorial over Angleton 4-2 in the New Year’s Kickoff Classic soccer tournament championship match on Saturday afternoon in Angleton.

It’s been called “The Greatest Hunters’ Convention on the Planet” by Jay Cox and “The Greatest Family Reunion on the Planet” by my friend, Larry Weishuhn, whom I quoted in this column on Nov. 7. (see “Want Larger Antlers?)

The return of Keke Davis to the Robert E. Lee basketball lineup showed just how much the Ganders missed and need him.

It was the first official weekend of boys soccer in Texas, but Robert E. Lee’s squad went into Friday’s home contest seeing visiting Porter as a final scrimmage prior to 2 p.m. Monday’s contest against rivals Sterling.

DAYTON – The Dayton Lady Broncos used two early goals that would stand up in a 2-0 win over Sterling Friday night at Houston Methodist Field at Bronco Stadium. 

They came so close to a playoff spot in 2019, but the Sterling Rangers left the campaign behind wondering what could have happened.

Jonathan Roman’s penalty kick late in the second half help the Goose Creek Memorial Patriots tie Fulshear 1-1 on the first day of the Pasadena Cup to open the season Thursday.

It could be a year full of success sprinkled with a little bit of luck for William Freeman.

Eight was enough for Robert E.Lee head soccer coach Jay Langlois.

I must have been a good boy this year, although I don’t list my wife as a reference. But when measured on the naughty/nice scale and adjudged by Santa’s rewards, it looks like I’ve graded fairly well.
