Hues blast Austin Travis, set up date with McAllen By JESSE MILLER AUSTIN - Statistically, it shouldn't have even been dose. But as it was, the defending Class AAAA state champion Brazoswood Buccaneers got all they wanted of the out-manned but surprisingly determined Austin Travis Rebels here Saturday afternoon. The Hues fought for a narrow 7-6 halflime lead and then tacked up two second half insurance touchdowns for a 21-12 bi- district victory over the Rebels before 10,000-plus Memorial Stadium fans. BRAZOSWOOD now faces McAIlcn in the second round of the high school playoffs. The Rues dropped McAllen 35-3 last year in Corpus Christi. The Buccaneer defense did an outstanding job against the pesky Rebels Saturday and, looking at the stats, the game should have probably been more of a runaway than the tight game it turned out to be, Brazoswood rolled to 24 first downs while allowing only seven, 284 yards rushing while giving up only 34 and a total offense figure of 345 to Austin's 137. IN 8IMTK of all that, it was still anybody's ball game until the Buccaneer* scored a clinching touchdown with 2; 19 left to play.
