Football: Kingwood races past College Park, 21-0

By almost anyone’s standards it wasn’t a pretty game — far from it.

Kingwood's Griffin Lay runs for a first down during a District 16-6A football game Friday.

With just 230 total yards of offense between College Park and Kingwood, it didn’t look a Friday night showdown between two playoff teams.

But when the dust settled Friday night at Woodforest Bank Stadium, it was Kingwood on top 21-0.

“Kingwood did a great job and were ready to play,” College Park coach Richard Carson said. “We played good defensively but we wore down, because we couldn’t play well on offense. That’s my fault. We didn’t get them ready to play and we have to find a way to get better and well do. We’ve dealt with some disappointment this year and we’ll bounce back from it.”

College Park (3-6, 2-3 in District 16-6A) has dealt with adversity this season and managed to turn that around and win back to back games to earn them a shot at a playoff spot.
