The Cedar Park Timberwolves beat the Georgetown Eagles 27-24 at home Friday. Coming off the previous week’s tough 38-14 loss to undefeated Hutto High School, Georgetown’s record comes to 3-3 – and 0-2 in district play. The team has now lost its last three games. Cedar Park’s record comes to 5-2, 3-0 in the district. The Timberwolves next Friday play the undefeated Hutto Hippos.
Cedar Park head coach Carl Abseck spoke after the game. “They’re a good football team,” he said about Georgetown. “ … So we knew it was going to be a good game, and we had to play our tails off. We’re a pretty good team, too, so I was proud of our kids and how they played and performed when it was crunch time.”
Cedar Park’s offense dominated early on, the team scoring a touchdown and a field goal in the first quarter; then the team went into halftime with 17-10 lead.
But the Eagles broke out early in the third quarter with a 67-yard run by quarterback Jackson Sioson, who managed to score after escaping a series of tackles.
With the game tied at 17 going into the fourth quarter, Cedar Park took the lead with a field goal, bringing the score to 20-17.
And though Cedar Park scored one more touchdown in the fourth quarter, missing the extra point, it was Georgetown who added some drama to the night by scoring one more touchdown with minutes left in the game – bringing the score to 27-24. But Cedar Park quarterback Ryder Hernandez then kneeled the ball to kill the clock, sealing the team’s victory of Georgetown.
