Wednesday Night Lights

(Warning: no Baylor football content)

 Wednesday night was homecoming at Central Junior High.  This is the only game where Elliot's band plays.  Here he is, leading the drum line.  I'm proud of him and the leadership he has shown in band.
 It was a great night for football, and even though I came just to see Elliot in the band, I got treated to a great football game, too.  Central led 7-6 at halftime, and after a scoreless 3rd quarter they broke out with a big turnover, stripping the ball inside the 10 and running it all the way home for a touchdown.  The visitors answered with a touchdown of their own, but Central stopped their 2 point conversion attempt, preserving their 14-12 lead.  All they needed to do was get a couple of first downs and run the clock, but they fumbled, giving the visitors a short field.  Thankfully Central's defense stood strong, stopping them and winning 14-12.
 Not much has changed in the world of cheerleading.  Most of the cheers I recognized from my school days, and they continually had little or nothing to do with what was happening on the field.

Elliot and his homecoming date got mums for each other.  These are on the small side of what I saw Wednesday night.
