Bastrop Bears 24, Westlake Chaparrals 21 (Oct. 9)
Junior quarterback Josiah Monroe put up 335 total yards of offense in leading the undefeated Bastrop Bears to a 24-21 road win over Westlake.Â Monroe threw for three scores, including a 66-yard pass to Josh Taylor late in the fourth quarter to give Bastrop the lead.Â A last-minute attempt to tie the score for the Chaparrals fell short when cornerback Bernard Blake intercepted a pass from Westlake quarterback Tanner Price.
With the win, Bastrop is in the words of the Austin American-Statesman, in the â€ś25-5A driverâ€™s seat."Â The Bears are now 6-0 for the first time since 1998, and, more importantly, 3-0 in District 25-5A play.Â The home-standing Westlake Chaparrals, meanwhile, fell to 4-2, 2-1 in league play.
Okay, so you really arenâ€™t interested in the District 25 5-A standings, but rest assured there are many, many fans in the greater Austin area who are.
