Stephenville’s unbeaten 7-on-7 squad had a practice session against Glen Rose here Monday, working to stay sharp before the upcoming state tournament.
The practice included scrimmaging and situational work, including third down and extra point conversions.
“I thought we had a good night,” head coach Chad Morris said, although the team’s intensity level fell short of what he wanted.
“I think we got some good work out of it, there’s no doubt about that,” he said. “Kids have had a great summer so far.”
During the first session, Glen Rose and Stephenville scored two touchdowns apiece, but the Yellow Jackets had one extra point conversion to put them on top.
Quarterback Kody Spano connected with Tom Ed Ramsay for Stephenville’s first touchdown. The second score was caught by Trey Taylor.
A series with the team’s second unit followed. Neither team scored after two series apiece, although Reilly Avalos caught a nice deep ball from Brad Picha just before the break.
The first teams returned, and Stephenville held Glen Rose on three of four full drives, the first such stop coming at the goalline.
On the Yellow Jackets’ first play, Brad Mills went the distance down the sideline after catching an out from Spano. Taylor also had another touchdown catch.
Stephenville will have another practice session at 6 p.m. Monday. The state tournament will be held that week in College Station, starting July 13.
